lyrics

Floods
Limpid pools of water
Limpid pools of eyes
I’ve got Sand and Cactus
Under cold black skies
You’ve got the city
You’ve got your friends
You’re famous on the internet
I guess it all depends
Roll this town and conquer
Or slip into the back
That stage is like my bedroom
So lets all hit the sack
Back home there’s a memory
Of something that you said
I don’t want to lose that thought
But I’m starting to lose my head
I know that I’m capable of sinking pretty low
Can’t Learn to admit it but after every show
I can’t admit the fact, (so please)
Get out with some dignity intact
Slightly cracking voice
Right beside my ear
Rising up behind me
A tiny creeping fear
Your tiny little squeal
Give up without a fight
You hear the lovers scream
in floods of winters night
I know that I’m capable of sinking pretty low
Can’t Learn to admit it but after every show
I can’t admit the fact, (so please)
Get out with some dignity intact
I’m sorry that I might not
Carry on the name
Might not be the runner
To entrust the holy flame
So I’ll go back to strange beds
You go to your friends
Shut off all the lights
And we’ll just wait till when
We can be eye to eye
And shut the door real tight
To block out all the screaming
In floods of winters night
