I’ll be the grapes fermented,
Bottled and served with the table set in my finest suit
Like a perfect gentlemen
I’ll be the fire escape that’s bolted to the ancient brick
Where you will sit and contemplate your day
I’ll be the waterwings that save you if you start drowning
In an open tab when your judgment’s on the brink
I’ll be the phonograph that plays your favorite
Albums back as you’re lying there drifting off to sleep…
I’ll be the platform shoes and undo what heredity’s done to you…
You won’t have to strain to look into my eyes
I’ll be your winter coat buttoned and zipped straight to the throat
With the collar up so you won’t catch a cold
I want to take you far from the cynics in this town
And kiss you on the mouth
We’ll cut our bodies free from the tethers of this scene,
Start a brand new colony
Where everything will change,
We’ll give ourselves new names (identities erased)
The sun will heat the grounds
Under our bare feet in this brand new colony
Everything will change.
These are honestly some of the most beautiful and lyrics I have ever heard. I love this song to death.
Who cares for the life we’ve earned? Someone’s sold all the truth you yearned. Remember when we used to shine and had no fear or sense of time? It creeps up on you.
You can’t cry now, there’s nothing to feel. No one’s noticed our loneliness. Remember when you used to tease and made us scream “eternal time”?
I believed that you’d always be here ‘cause once you promised a life with no fear. Please don’t break my ideals and say what’s fake was always real. I was the one, now I’m gone. Take me back again.
