As you cry in sliver rings and pose
In a second you'll be high and in clouds alone
I never thought I'd see the day
But I see stars around your face
Just like we're in the movies and you're scared
This was never my intention after all
So tell me, "What the fuck did I do?"
Damn, not even from my lifeless, cold, dead hands
We're made to destroy.

Tell me what you want until it hurts
I'll hang myself in lights
And I will glow for you
The color, oh my god it sends you
Spinning on this circus ride
You're further than you've ever been
Stuck in zero gravity we laugh
I think we're in over our heads

I can't deny it's getting worse
Trust me it's a blessing and a curse
Call me if you're crashing, we'll take turns
Hello, welcome to Southern California
Now go back home

Step back, I can't believe
Do the math, the sky will fall anyways
Trust me this is a blessing and a curse
This much I can't deny

    General Comment“It’s about trying to make relationships work from tour. Over the years of our touring, I’d build something with someone every once in a while from another state or another country, and it was sort of unrealistic and difficult to do. It caused a lot of pain and frustration. I spelled the title wrong, because I thought it was spelled like that [Laughs]. It looks easier to say so I left it.”

    General CommentAbout the title: Vic said he spelled it wrong, as I think he meant "sambuca" which is an Italian liqueur.
