[Verse 1:]
so you have that
feeling again,
when it rushes from
your complex system.

that's when you
have define it
before your body
becomes a contradiction.

how it works on you

how it effected you

how it works on your

m-m-mindset.

where is your

m-m-mind at?

[Chorus:]
yet as the years pass by,
it doesn't even matter anymore.
did it ever baby?
'Cause it ends and you just don't feel it
emptying your core.

[Verse 2:]
always rememeber
the emptiness on the
first day.

drunk on what you found
in your parent's cupboard
on your birthday
(everyday.)

and you're so young.
and you're so naive.
and so you fear you've lost something

something so s-s-subtantial.

each taste is
c-c-c-consequential.

[Chorus:]
yet as the years pass by,
it doesn't even matter anymore.
did it ever baby?
'Cause it ends and you don't feel it
emptying your core.

[Bridge:]
when your friends leave town
and you're left behind
scribble down your thoughts
before they leave your mind

yet soon you might realize
paper is worth less
with your handwritin'

when your friends leave town
and you're left behind
and tropical summer sets
and you're set to die

go and scribble your thoughts
before they leave your mind

your coffee gets cold
and your beer gets warm...

[Chorus:]
yet as the years pass by,
it doesn't even matter anymore.
did it ever baby?
'Cause it ends and you don't feel it
emptying your core.

[Bridge:]
when your friends leave town
and you're left behind
scribble down your thoughts
before they leave your mind

yet soon you might realize
paper is worth less
with your handwritin'

and when your friends leave town
and you're left behind
and tropical summer sets
and you're set to die

remember what you wrote:

We are angels
doing angelic work
toiling, sweating
for that tiny sliver of hope
and that redeption
that never seems to come...
