It doesn’t take so much sacrifice to give into someone’s good advice Is it wrong for me to wish for something better for you? The texture of the story depending on your drive So do you bow beneath the story? Seek out a righteous glory Are you so defiant you must avoid enlightenment? The bridge is made of quartz It’s commonplace to the lords It sparkles and amazes you so much that you feel used It doesn’t take much to participate It’s so unimaginative to hate The two are synonymous to me So are you two getting married? To the sound of a wind chime symphony You’ll be beautiful parents Because your scope is panoramic The gemstone is made of quartz It’s commonplace to the lords I’m amazed by you two

Donna 02:57
My mother’s mother was an unwanted child She got sent to her grandparents, I hope they cared for her She wrote letters to her absent father That I’m not sure got sent They asked questions like “Daddy do you love me?” Which is a question no daughter should ever have to ask They had little drawings of flowers and families and houses along the border My mother’s mother is not around but if she was around she wouldn’t have to ask me if I loved her I never met you but I love you, Donna You're an angel in heaven

If friendship is the spark that spits in the face of maliciousness And comfort is what kills the spirit of indifference Then I must be the bearer of your conscience Your conscience is my inheritance Don’t rub your hands together too soon So naive so absurd To think that your actions are graceful and cool when you’re really so naive and absurd If you blush it’s only cus you’re remarkable A blush is just a measure of your noticeable medal If I could share some time with you it would be historical If friendship is the spark that spits in the face of maliciousness And comfort is what kills the spirit of indifference Then I wanna be your comforting friend when you’re in need If friendship is the spark that spits in the face of maliciousness And comfort is what kills the spirit of indifference Then I wanna be your comforting friend when you need me

Let’s recite all the hymns that we can Humming birds hovering into one another again and again You and I are not guilty of anything and if we were we’d be forgiven I can’t make all the bad things go away but I can write you poetry Swim with me in Sir Francis Drake One of us may start to run and the other may break into a chase You can always spend the night at my place

Let's kill everything that breathes and sings Put them out of their misery We're all on a pilgrimage towards something that makes us feel like we're aren't dying No one wants to love each other we all secretly want to murder one another Beauty is a joke and love doesn't exist Let's sing something that we don't believe in We don't have to believe in everything we sing

Crying Fits 03:02
Some days we share crying fits over your period being late On other days I look like a murderer walking into the cleaners holding your free-bleeding stained sheets You might find that you like having sex with your friends Or you might find that the face of God is terrifying But we can map out each other’s naked bodies in our minds Memorize all the freckles, memorize all the lines No one can hold up a candle to your everlasting flame They’d just get blown away We can run away in our own hometown We can cover our tracks they won’t think to look for us here We can sleep in the back of my car We’ll keep each other warm while they drop bombs How am I supposed to not fall for you? Your gentle touch Your warm embrace The way you speak my name in space I spell your name You touch my heart How am I supposed to not fall for you?

I know this isn't what you had in mind at all When i said I lean towards uncontrollable I know this isn't what you had in mind at all When I said I lean towards unattainable I'm hearing reindeer on the roof that's what it's gotta be reindeer on the roof I know it's not something I can see I'm a child laying in bed and that's what I'm hearing I'm hearing reindeer on the roof John Webb he's looking down to me John Webb he's the earliest example of what I am
