New song off our upcoming EP, Good Head Starts, Bitter Ends


we'll just fall asleep to songs we know by heart
we're all just shadows and silhouettes
but nights like these, they give us depth

what lovely thoughts of you, so disillusioned
i'm the stars punched in your pitch black plan
of hiding over darkened, empty skies

i'd tell you everything but you'd just forget
i'm plain and simple; the smoke over your head
dissolved into a stagnant sky
well i guess the silence means goodbye

here we are, at bitter ends
just close your eyes and get some rest
good head starts, they never got us too far

i in and exhale but never catch my breath
peel back the paint, and we're all just at the mercy
of the elements

tired hearts at their end
close your eyes, darling and just pretend
the night is young and we're not ever goin home

so what's it like to be
a songbird, [be]cause we're all just set in stone
and worn away by wind, a life unmovable
leave what you know will guide you home

what's it like to be honest for nothing?
i'm plain and simple; a crutch for your longing;
a gaping cut best left alone
to clutch the only flesh its known
and i know to much already to go now.


from Good Head Starts, Bitter Ends, released May 25, 2012
