about

The first single from our upcoming full-length, Don't Look Now, out 2021

lyrics

Talk you off your ledge
Back to salvation
Everyone stays home
But you gotta go on a vacation

Je ne parle pas français
I wanted to go to Mexico anyway
You can can always choose
How long you're gonna stay

A thousand miles, you close your eyes
Everyone just wants to be wise
Look back way before
This happened even more

A thousand days, as many nights
Everyone just wants to be remembered right
If you could see yourself young
You'd see how far you've come

This is where we are but this ain't how it ought to be
Wherever time takes us we'll have to see
This is where we are but this ain't how it ought to be
Wherever time takes us I guess we'll just have to keep pushing to be free

Talk you outta your head
Back to reality
Everyone else makes friends
But you're cynical of that mentality

Je ne comprends pas
I'm just telling you what I saw
We can can always move
If you're feeling that raw

A hundred thousand trains of thought
Some trains just won't be caught
Looking on down the line
Looks like we're gonna be fine

A thousand billion ways of life
None of them seem to be just quite right
Keeping all this in mind
I think we're doing all right

This is where we are but this ain't how it ought to be
Wherever time takes us we'll have to see
This is where we are but this ain't how it ought to be
Wherever time takes us I guess we'll just have to keep pushing to be free
