come home 02:48
Getting stuck and I’m drunk again Gotta wake up to myself again When the sun is out, And I’m not sure what day it is Baby I’m a little lost Baby I’m a little lost I can only smile on purpose All these things I want Is it worth it Well I’d hate to be alone When it stops working When it stops working Stop doing that Won’t you please come home? Stop doing that Won’t you please come home? I’m more myself these days I think, I’ve got more guts than I could ever need I could ever need I’m more myself these days I think, I’ve got more guts than I could ever need I could ever need I’m more myself these days I think, I’ve got more guts than I could ever need I could ever need Stop doing that, won’t you please come home? Stop doing that, won’t you please come home? Stop doing that, won’t you please come home?

Sometimes you try your best But the bad still wins You put up quite a fight But you went home bleeding Your throat is tired But you still weren’t loud enough All our plans have been paused All the future is lost We can’t keep hiding The world, isn’t waiting for us There’s been a price, put on time There’s a number on my head Sometimes you feel so small That you can’t be found Don’t give up, build a fire Find somebody to love We don’t have time for this There’s a chance it’ll keep getting worse This is a robbery Robbery Robbery We can’t keep hiding The world, isn’t waiting for us There’s been a price put on time There’s a number on my head

This is self destruction This is a disease Woah And she says you’re not worth it You can say what you please I’ll let the earth, swallow me And I like to think about too many things I’ll watch the earth - swallow me It’s not a dream you’re supposed to be in love Woah You can change your name You could learn to be enough I don’t wanna be human anymore Relax and shush the stories Baby we can start again Woah If I could drink a little less, she said Maybe I could learn to be, learn to be, learn to be - somebody It’s not a dream you’re supposed to be in love Woah You can change your name You could learn to be enough I don’t wanna be human anymore I’ve been searching for freedom You’re still looking for, a god Woah I’ve been searching for freedom You’re still looking for, a god It’s not a dream you’re supposed to be in love Woah You can change your name You could learn to be enough I don’t wanna be human anymore I’ve been searching for freedom You’re still looking for, a god I’ve been searching for freedom You’re still looking for, a god I’ve been searching for freedom You’re still looking for, a god

I’m a fraud I am not young enough To die young And it makes me sad That I know too much To believe in god Yeah, when I need help I ask the devil first And I swear I’m at my best when your not watching Well, Can you find me out here? I am a torn, black hole I am a supernova I am a supernova Ahhaaah The best songs Are written with the saddest souls Cuz only, they know Where the lonely hearts go The liquor gets stronger After brushing your teeth The only thing I wanna do today Is fall asleep Well, Can you find me out here? I am a torn black hole I am a supernova I am a supernova How did you find me out now? I am a torn black hole I am a supernova I am a supernova Aahhaaaa Well We are not astronauts We are not astronauts We are not astronauts Can you find me out here? I am a torn black hole I may not make another year But it’s not your job to fix me I am a supernova I am a supernova I am a supernova I am a supernova Aahhhaa I’m a fraud I am not young enough To die young

people are parasites cutting down trees for paper that's make-believe building a cage around drawing lines in the ground we're too scared too be loud we refuse to call out those looking for treasure in ways they can measure the same thing forever and won't call it murder impact and danger hold back our anger hide behind laughter on the brink of disaster we've got no concept of time after we've got no concept of time we're guided by panic blind, deaf and frantic what if time isn't static? like we're made of elastic we stretch till we snap and every action is brilliant or tragic the smell of burnt plastic we can't imagine the sound of the damage we're taking advantage shallow and selfish we're so fucking clueless we've rendered this useless we call we call ourselves human and we call we call ourselves we can't survive without this we can't survive without this we won't survive so fuck him i won't be forced to, handle these storms or silence those words that hang off of sunken ships we need dramatic excuses for havoc finding distractions like some kind of addict attached to chaotic strings tied with tact and it tastes like a trap thats cluttered with traffic we can't survive without this we can't survive without this we won't survive so fuck him i won't be forced to handle these storms or silence these words that hang off of sunken ships people are parasites
