lyrics

Named all solutions with my hands.
Oh, what am I to do?
Tell me, what am I to do?

I love you when you’re quiet,
but I hate you when the silence leaves with you.

And I lost my family underneath
the wires for the phone.
Tell me what you want to know.
Please, tell me all I need to know.

I am your chrome covered in dust
and I’d go home if I knew where the hell that was.

And I can’t call the top of a spun coin.
I’ve been ripped off and robbed at gunpoint.
Keep your eyes alive,
they’ll put the pistol down at some point.

And I’m tickin’ like a time bomb.
I’m relightin’ my own fuse.
Tell me, what am I to do?
Lord tell me, what am I to do?

I’m a self-destructive fire,
dirt-cheap morbid tale for hire.
Buy a few.

Pale blue sky, but I heard thunder;
And I should’ve known when I heard drums.

Old skin and bone, hold me under ‘til the cavalry comes.

All busted ties, so I know the hero dies.
