Seems my composure is coming unraveled. and i’m riding a thread.
to the floor falling forward saying this is a war. to the soundtrack of a warm gun.
These violent lines of sound carve names into my bones. and i'm better deaf.
cuz it aches to hear every year held up in fear of dragging along.

We’re fed up with the electric life. sad, it wasn't for us.
And if all you see is somehow harder, harder to take than a pill in a dry throat.
and the water fails to fend off all the unrationed doses.
Drunk with the sparks kiss and miserable.
Would the littering light ignite the night?

so what do you say then?
bonfires of blame send signals of smoke to cloud and choke
all your desire, burn in the fire and sing the whole thing through.
cuz its worth the view.

All or nothing. maybes don't travel.
stagnant roles script pulses faint.
jump start this heart, reverse to start.
It’s a city of sparks, city of sparks.

This modern love has branded us grand fools. "sing electric! Stay!"
It takes brave eyes open wide to see the light, a prism caught us once off.
If wealth is weighted by the charity of youth. young kings we’d stay.
we’ll never speak of the keep ransomed in sleep, when our efforts are lost.
our efforts are lost.

We’re fed up with the electric life. sad, it wasn't for us.
And if all you see is somehow harder, harder to take than a pill in a dry throat.
and the water fails to fend off all the unrationed doses.
Drunk with the sparks kiss and miserable.
Would the littering light ignite the night?

so what do you say then?
It’s coming in waves and pulling me closer to our ghost.
I left for awhile with everything idle, inside of an empty room.
cuz i pay my dues.

All or nothing. maybes don't travel.
stagnant roles script pulses faint.
jump start this heart, reverse to start.
It’s a city of sparks, city of sparks.

"Dear how do we sleep?" this city heat has us strung.
yea, we get along.
