about

I was going to release this on my upcoming self-titled EP, but decided to release it as a single instead. Acoustic guitar and voice layering is all that's used.

lyrics

(chorus)
I'm a tongue-twister, lip-kisser
Checklist misser, I'm a common sense fissure
I'm a broken scissor, reminiscer
These days I'm a conversation killer

tongue-twister, lip-kisser
Checklist misser, I'm a common sense fissure
I'm a broken scissor, reminiscer
But one of these days my words won't wither

Clearly so carefully cutting along the dotted lines I thought I might just try to write a song to clear the air tonight / I wanna be so clever impress address unless severed, nothing never does not default to the way I planned it, same old same old aim well though I might the wind is rarely on my side / but I guess that's the point, appointed expectations are avoided, loiter if you must to gain some trust and thus some more enjoyment / prove me wrong and I'll concede, from the moment I conceived a single thought I spun it like a top so ready to be toppled and I thought repeatedly "it'd be better if I went to sleep"

better if I went to sleep
better If I went to sleep
better if i went to sleep
better if i went to sleep

(chorus)

[break]

as winter whispered in the air
we spoke to life an expression of ourselves
an abstract snatch of creation, not to spare
the ticking seconds under our tongues
sheathed shards of succession submerged in silence seek the surface as we touch
misery loves company, but loneliness loves you

oh
oh
oh
oh

ashes, ashes, I'm falling through
catch me if you can...
