"Storyteller" as written by and Skyler Frederick Sarkis Benjamin William Kotin....
The midnight drunks go walking
Happy, looking sad, and talking destiny
This is what this city pays for, I can see
The neon lights resist the fight against separation anxiety
This is what this city pays for, I can see
The dream they sell
I’m hooked
I’m overwhelmed again
And I wish that I could say that the days alleviate
This artificial pain I never thought that I’d be feeling at this age
But the drunks don’t go to sleep
They linger just like you and me
This is what the city pays for
What I need

What’s happened to me?
And then I have those dreams too
The ones where I’m running around like a fool
To make things better for you

Like the good storyteller
You once knew me as
Try to hold it in my head that no time has passed
Since I stood in circles with automatic friends
Not worried that the means justified the end
Cause life without love keeps my eyes wide
And my house stays clean when I don’t let people inside
