lyrics

Each evening I, find myself with time, to kill, to fill with hedonistic remedies

Fast cars and fast girls, falling over themselves, take your pills, mix your drinks, it's medicinal love don't you think?

Turn off the lights, fill the holes underneath my eyes,
Slowly folding over all the wrinkles you hide

A silence that burns, harsher than the words deserved
Heart sick and twisted, nerves sparking faster and further each turn

My fingers in her hair, followed her cheekbones to get there

Two blues worth black eyes,
No compromising spend the night

Turn off the lights, fill the holes underneath my eyes,
Slowly folding over all the wrinkles you hide

I'll be filled with dust and dying when I finally learn that I am alone
White picket fences pretty romances, I'm bluffing I can't help it at all
