Twisted squeezed and wrung like a mop
Too tight to beat too wet to stop
I can hear the drips forming a puddle
And I can see my reflection
Face blurred by ripples
It spreads to my lungs and stomach
Now I can't breathe
And my mouth tastes like vomit

But I'll be ok,
I'm growing numb to the pain anyway
Your lips twitch and tumble
They have a knack for finding trouble
Your legs buckle and shake
This chorus hits you like an earthquake

Please say its me not who you are
I thought i knew who my friends were
So now I'd like to be left alone
My only company paper scissor stone
Thanks for the torment
I need material a victim a subject
And as for him drive his ass home
I'm sure he'll be there the next time You feel all alone

I'll be ok,
Growing numb to the pain anyway
Your lips twitch and tumble
They have a knack for finding trouble
Your legs buckle and shake
This chorus hits you like an earthquake
Watch it split the ground in two
Leaving you across the room
Push me in and watch me fall
Down. Down. Down.

I concentrate on my breathing
These steps aren't worth repeating
I concentrate on my breathing
These steps aren't worth repeating

I keep my head low, this feeling's new
One I hoped to never know
I hide my face from your stupid soggy eyes
I keep my head low, this feeling's new
One I hoped to never know
I hide my face from your stupid soggy eyes

Your lips twitch and tumble
They have a knack for finding trouble Your legs buckle and shake
This chorus hits you like a fuckin' earthquake
Watch it split the ground in two
Leaving you across the room
Push me in and watch me fall
Down. Down. Down.

I concentrate on my breathing
These steps aren't worth repeating
I concentrate on my breathing
These steps aren't worth repeating.

    General Commentthis song is awesome and its on their new ep that comes out tomorrow August 19th

    i think it might have something to do with a relationship
    hmm maybe she was his best friend but he wanted so much more from her
    but she was best friends with someone else who she wanted more from and that person was also friends with him
    so maybe he was deeply hurt by the both of them

    just what i think
    Asteria is tha Shyt haha

    General Commentthis band is so fucking catchy.
    the song seems to be about a girl that cheated on him with a friend. he still has feelings for her but he doesn't want to get back with her because he doesn't want to get hurt again.
