Before You Start Your Day


If you're one of them, you're one of me

Open the slits in your face and start your day
You don’t have much time to make your slits look just right
I’m in your mind
I’m singing
I’m in your mind
I’m singing la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da da

Look in the mirror and ask your soul if you’re alright
Put out the glitter that your soul hides behind
You’re in my mind
I’m singing
You’re in my mind
I’m singing la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da da

Nowhere were they holy
Open up your eyes and see
The clouds above will hold you
The clouds above will sing

And in your mind
You’re singing la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da da

Drown

Here I come, come to you in the very clothes
That I killed, killed you in and now I know I’m alone
I walk to you, rain falls from you
Can you wash me, can you drown me?

I wanna be a lot of things, so much pent up inside of me
I wanna be stronger, too long I’ve sat here undecidedly
Planning strategy, half of me know it’s all just a fallacy
Failing miserably, drastically and then I crash dramatically
Into a wall I’ve hit a hundred times before
And yet I still ignore the dark red blood stains on the floor
And I’m back in front of your door with the blood on the floor
Is the blood mine or yours? Don’t wanna do this anymore

Back and forth between me and me and who you call me to be
You see a man free who thinks he has to buy a key
To a door but he can’t ‘cause he’s poor and he can’t
Fall down anymore ‘cause he’s already on the floor
And his heart is broken and all and this is his scar
But it’s warm from crying ‘cause he will try nine times
To realize nine crimes but he has more than nine lives
So he picks himself up and keeps fighting for the prize again

Here I come again to you
Just to show the blood soaked through
Through my bones and all I own
Is there a way for me to grow?
I walk to you, rain falls from you
Can you wash me, can you drown me, please?

Every time I feel selfish ambition is taking my vision
My crime is my sentence, repentance is taking commission
It’s taking a toll on my soul, I’m screaming submission and
I don’t know if I am dying or living
‘Cause I will save a face for name’s sake
Abuse grace, take a aim to obtain a new name in a newer place
But my name is lame, I can’t walk and I ain’t the same
And my name became a new destiny to the grave and
They say the ocean’s blue but it’s black right now
In the dark, on the sand, looking out at my crowd
Depression and drowning singing now the full parts
Of lightning reveals where the ocean stops and the sky starts
I’ve been told by the sky that the ocean I shall win
But it’s hard for me to see where ocean stops, where sky begins
A random strike of light reminds me of what is true
But right now the ocean is black and black the sky is too

Slowtown

Hey, hey wouldn’t it be great, great
If we could just lay down and wake up in slowtown
Today, day I wanna go away, way
Cause things are too fast now
I wanna be in slowtown

I put my socks on my feet
Just so that my soul won’t fall through my toes
And I walk through my door
Just so I don’t fall through the floor

I remember when my brother and other kids from neighboring houses would get
Together I’d ride my bike and my brother would ride his. Put cards in our
Spokes and make our engines sound like traffic. When using Pokémon cards
Please do not use the holographic. So bold and fearless and the risks we
Take, laugh in the face of gravity as it’s laws we break on trampolines so
High we’d reach for the sky but I do not look up anymore and I don’t know
Why.

I put my socks on my feet
Just so that my soul won’t fall through my toes
And I walk through my door
Just so I don’t fall through the floor

We’re going to fast, fast save us
We’re going to fast, fast save us
We’re going to fast, fast save us now

And I walk through my door
Just so I don’t fall through the floor

Hey, hey wouldn’t it be great, great
If we could just lay down and wake up in slowtown
Just singing
