Lyrics

‘Unsummering’

We had a violent past
But my anger was sophisticated
And that’s just one of the many things that separates us

And the settings
Oh yes
The settings were so different
I was foolish to think that that would be enough

You always take me with you
When I repeatedly said that I would rather be unsummering
When I explicitly said that I would rather be unsummering

I never show up for the flight
But we have takeoff
And I can feel them pulling off my coat
In every city I lived under a blister
They were calling to me
“It’s time to go”

You always take me with you
When I repeatedly said that I would rather be unsummering
When I explicitly said that I would rather be unsummering

 

‘Kelly Was a Philistine’

She’s not on the playground
Been missing for days
She’s going away now
It’s obvious
This is her serious phase

I found her face down
Looking up at space
She’s going away now
Her eyes are closed
Today won’t be the day

Kelly was a philistine the last time we met
So why are we getting along?
Why are we getting along?
She’s not ready
She’s not ready yet

Our acquaintance was pleasant
Right ’til the end
But she’s going away now
Is she ready?
She nodded her head
There’s no going back
This is for good
One return ticket in her pocket
She misunderstood

Kelly was a philistine the last time we met
So why are we getting along?
Why are we getting along?
She’s not ready
She’s not ready yet

 

‘Deeper Holes’

Am I a hypocrite in your eyes
Because you saw me above ground?
If I’m a traitor in your mind
For talking with the enemy
You would be missing the point
I only come up so I can look for deeper holes

Never satisfied
I am always too shallow
You call me a liar
When I come out of the shadows
Because you fail to realize
That I only come out so I can look for deeper holes

 

‘Birthright’

Taking chances like my life is someone else’s money
Sacrilegious
Like this is someone else’s soul
What I did yesterday is just a story
That I’ve never heard before

And when low odds
Guaranteed me a cruel life
Risk became my birthright
Risk became my birthright

Taking chances like this is someone else’s body
Starting fires
Like this is someone else’s home
Oh how I loved looking out at the ocean
Like someone else was overboard

But when low odds
Guaranteed me a cruel life
Risk became my birthright
Risk became my birthright

 

‘Mostly Back’

That was no cherry that I saw in the darkness
You’d been there long before
That’s what they love to tell me

You said it was easy
And he always wanted more
But anyone who’s gone this far
Would know the devil is no whore
You said you’d been to hell and back
But mostly back is what it seemed
I am the bleeding edge
But it was me who followed you here nonetheless
That’s what they love to tell me

That was no cherry that I saw in the darkness
They’ve all had a piece
Spreading rumors that the night
Is always on its knees
You said it was easy
And he always wanted more
But anyone who’s gone this far would know the devil is no whore
You said you’d been to hell and back
But mostly back is what it seemed
I am the bleeding edge
But it was me who followed you here nonetheless
That’s what they love to tell me

 

‘Mouser’

Do you feel like dancing if the cost is three hundred million lives?
Yes

You want to kill it but you won’t

Do you feel like dancing?
The cost is three hundred million lives
Do you feel like dancing?
Yes

You want to kill it but you won’t
You want to kill it but you don’t
