lyrics

(Nat)
I stand here, in front of everyone, screaming inaudible words and the meaning gets lost
Everything gets lost in the verses the verses the verses, but everyone gets a show, and that's what they want to see
But I write the same song over and over and over again, and it doesn't make me feel any better
What a shitty form of therapy

(Rain)
I can feel the waves crashing and breaking against my body like a brick through a window
I'm trying to find the balance between keeping myself and my friends happy
I'm trying to find the balance but there is none
I'm trying to find the balance between keeping myself and my friends happy
I'm trying to find the balance but there is none
Am I who you want me to be, or am I who i want to be
I'll carve my own path over your weathered facade

(Nat)
I said it once but i'll say it again, we have no fucking clue what we're doing here.
It's just me versus my verses
If you hear one thing tonight, please do not clap, please do not cheer or smile.
Please do not applaud our sorrow
please let our songs end in silence
Because I think Hemingway had it right
I think Hemingway had the answer
He knew how to go

(Nat/Rain)
It's versus verses so watch me bleed
