      name your price



the air around us got so thick so quick
i heard the pain in your voice on the phone
scraping the paint off the god damn walls i know
what happens next could be anybody’s guess not mine
i like to coast through the timeline and see what i find

are they putting the squeeze on you?
are they shaking you down?
watching your every move they know
folks like us don’t fuck around
we dream in the daytime
because our nightmares don’t stay nightmares at night
they are the stupid thoughts that pile up for miles in your mind

what kind of people have been hanging in your tightest circles
how many enemies have you been sharing your bed with lately
if there’s a cause to join i want to join this one
and cut out our tongues because god damn we’ve had enough

you want the kind of love that stands
defenseless in defiance
i want the kind where you never have to
think twice about it
fucked up with a faded heart.
wrong moves false starts
the endless repeating between
what you need and what you want

who’s gonna fuck with you know
i never wanna know how much further we gotta go
