lyrics

You don't know which colors go together.
But matching doesn't matter anymore,
and tonight you will tell her
it doesn't matter what she came here for.
Because insecurity is no better
than all the pointless things we bow before.
Cruelty is the whip, anxiety is the tether
and depression is the guts and gore.

For you the world is poorly lit,
so by nightfall you’re used to it.

Now you’re staring out the window
being abused as shapes float by.
Open your hand, smudge the glass
to obscure everything outside.
You chew on a pill, think about nothing,
focus on your knees and fade and sigh.
And in your backseat dream
you are trepanned under a blue sky.

For you the world is poorly lit,
so by nightfall you’re used to it.
