My foot is in it's not the door it's piss and pouring
Flight’s decent pressed to the floor its spinal cord tail
Drags us down our lips are sealed our gauze is frayed
Afraid to stake mistake in maze it's all made up and it's real but lost

Nevermore times maybe more times maybe more it’s
Meaningful just afterwards dead silence heard that this
Driver’s wheel keeps spinning 'round until an equal and opposite reaction sounds through this
Peaceful drawl collects in balls that grow in size make mountainsides and

Everything is made up of change your mind I’ve changed my mind and
Everyone is wearing the same disguise friend or foe the same big sky where

Freedom flops with gasping breaths with punctured chest these
Blessed dressings size the sore what’s wise is tame it’s treated for let’s
Synchronize our battle cry as alibis this
Tallied score reveals a man a single man superior whose reasons why worth fighting for but

Everything comes back to refrain the same the same last time when
Everyone’s renumbered and arranged in lines the straightest lines


from l o n g EP, released January 15, 2016
