addicted to monotonous crush
i even dropped out of school
to catch up on sleep
take the train for hours
and then try to forget
where you left your heart
read the free form poem
to your locked door
if you find them
they were never mine...
if you don't - well - nevermind
porcelain hope...
why do you always break on me?
(it all makes sense to me)
porcelain hope...
why do you always break on me?
i set the alarm just to remind myself
that i spent the day all by myself
this is my story - love...
day one to now...
background music to a silent film
you see- the curtains feeling down...
i helped this city burn to the ground
they said it tried to make amends
but i never heard a sound
porcelain hope...
you're not much - but you're all i got
porcelain hope...
you're not much - but you're all i got

    General CommentI think you guys should pay tribute to American Nightmare by allowing whichever one of the Porcelain Hope bands is shittiest to keep the name.

    General Commenti don't know if it's because he was an alleged tweaker... but severe depression takes a lot out of you physically
