about

in hindsight the guitar with the constant string noises was a bad idea. whoops. this is probably the least bad of the breakup tracks lyrically but that really doesn't say much.

lyrics

(the sun, 0:00)

I have no plans on this rock of mine
I have no hunger, I have no pain
there is no way to see spring again.

I have no way to tell the time
I never wonder, I never shout
otherwise, they’ll walk about.

The rafts never float back, it comes back around
I have a deep loathing towards the rest of this town
but you’re something special, all logic is defied
I’ll let you live, I’ll let you survive.

We’re not special after all
we’re superficial and against the wall
the boat is sinking, water is filling in
I worry about it when the gaps are closing.

I have no plan to get out of here
the world is beautiful and I am dying
its beauty comes out when I go in hiding
I have no way to show fear.

The storm is approaching
and I don’t even care
I’ll wave my arms and wake up
with lightning striking my hair
let the thunder roll on
let the storm roll on
I’ll ride it to the end
I’ll ride it to the very end.

We were never friends
we were never lovers.

We were never friends
we were never lovers
we were never swimmers
I could need another. (x4)

Your logic is impeccable, your ignorance moreso
you can shout it as much as you’d like, it won’t change
your frequent dives only prove my point when I’m drowning
because I feel like you see this as a game
aw... ah! fuck!
we were never gonna need another
ignorance moreso
you can shout it, shout it
dive into the ocean
we're gonna need another.

Well the sun turned off
and the moon came out that night
and it was very bright and it flew like a kite
the air was biting and cool
and the ribbon around us red
and nothing had to be said
and nothing had to be be dead.

I miss the sun
but it's time I move on
unfortunately
all things burn bright before dawn.

(never lovers, 4:51)

We were never friends
we were never lovers
we were never swimmers
I might/could need another. (x16)

Your logic is impeccable, your ignorance moreso
you can shout it as much as you’d like, it won’t change
your frequent dives only prove my point when I’m drowning
because I feel like you see this as a game.

Friends are not lovers
friends don't make good lovers
friends don't make good friends don't make good lovers.

We were never friends
we were never lovers.
