I soak up every little bit to sharpen my bones.
All grown up still trying to find my way home.
I never been cleaned or cloned.
My heart's never been owned.
I'm lonely, but everyone is lonely so at least I'm not alone.
This road is filled with pot holes,
but I don't need to tell you something that you already know.
We're both sinking in the same boat.
I wanted you to stay afloat
I did what I could,
But you had to learn to swim on your own.
You lost your glow in the glitter and the gold.
I couldn't stay alive inside your choke hold.
Hold, hold on, because I really gotta go.
Cause I'm not falling into your hole.

You won't spin my head around
You won't take this one from me
you won't bring me to the ground
you won't ever see, ever see
you won't ever see the ground

I soak up every little bit to harden my skin
No matter how I stand still pulled by the wind
When intention goes limp
wipe the face off my grin
and love me in the name of guilt
to keep on being good friends
A liar's lips are their
best fingerprints
You can fake it isn't there
but I can taste it when we kiss
Tracing paper wrists
I tried to draw the line and I missed
But one day I'll be able to look back at
this and make some kind of sense of it
I'm not another shin to kick
one foot in the grave both hands on the gin
It took a while to figure out
we couldn't coexist
But I'm not falling into your abyss

You won't spin my head around
You won't take this one from me
you wanna bring it to the clouds?
you won't ever see, ever see
you won't ever see the ground (2x)

    General CommentNo comment? Wow. First off, awesome artist and an awesome song. I think this is about him trying to give his all in helping someone, but after a while something had to give. You can only show someone so much before they have to take matters into their own hands. A master trying to graduate his disciple. "We're both sinking in the same boat. I wanted you to stay afloat, I did what I could, But you had to learn to swim on your own."

    Song MeaningBefore he performs this Intermedia Arts in Minneapolis he said this about the song:

    "Is about pseudo friendships and trying to find our place and my place in the world without having to deal with so much weird social situations and not letting those kind of embarrassing weird things hold us down"
