Put a cap on between the snow falling and everything we've been promising
I'll never stay up, never get done, never finish, never come
Never be serious, you'll never be satisfied

All I can do is...
Never be there for you
Never be there, I've heard it's true, this born to die we live to lose
But the only thing I've ever known for sure is... oh, no, it must be some other

Almost April we saw it on the TV screen
A hundred dead, all Algonquin chiefs, what's it mean to me?
Too much red, counting stares, I know it's not enough to care
But in suicide slum we're doing fine, the trains are running right behind
Telegraph mines, the ghost lines in your eyes, wasting time but you know I-I-I-
Don't believe it's ever held my breath
Just a little bit

Uncanny, lately I've been everything but me
Except I never said I did not mean for that to happen
Accept I've been noticing August dreams come crystalline
Swallowing a little steam
God's honest thought: "Don't let him breathe"

Well you broke my city so I broke it back, bullshit bark dogs on the attack
Scratching off your emerald ash, my sweet gum baby
Well oh my god, oh my damn, once you've given it up you can't
Never ever never ever get it back again
But nothing's ever happening
