lyrics

Cheer up, sleepy.
You’re an empty room to a heart full of debris,
and my Vintage 30s.
An overloaded jackpot,
I’ve lost the plot and I can’t breathe.
And I am functionally make-believe.

We ripped that plant out of the ground
and carried it around for too long in a bad dream where
I couldn’t find the right dirt.

Wake up, sleepy,
from drink song exile,
it is all a lullablur.
Autumn Walker’s grown and gone.
Did you make up your heart?
Is that what makes you run?

Get up, sleepy.
The tree fort’s compromised,
the tire swing’s been lost.
(They’ve crossed our) line in the sandbox.
And we’re taking shots like BBs off a battleship
that pitches with the waves.
My emotion sickness staves.

We ripped that plant out of the ground
and carried it around for too long in a bad dream where
I couldn’t find the right dirt.

We shook and slandered what we found,
buried it in sound and grew strong in a sad scene where
I never found the right fit.
