Lyrics

.march '10.

Written By: christopher burns

.march ’10.

Walking through interest and stimulation
taking it in and turning it around.
But it drops, it all drops, with no sound.

There’s a haze of silent static around
Dulling everything that it surrounds
push out, sent back and force down.

It’s too bad, I’m so disappointed.

Brightness and sound sometimes find their way here
brief moments of reprieve i achieve
They get turned over, they get turned around
But anything they try just leads back inside
Until there’s no, where to go, but down.

It’s too bad, I’m so disappointed.
I’m so sad, it’s just so disappointing.

.your confidence.

.your confidence.

Just pick away, pick pick and say it’s all falling apart.
Complexity contains more than remains of what was there to start.
Put it back down, turn turn around and maybe in the end…
It’s such a delicate thread.

I know it’s not easy for you
Sometimes we’re together and still
It feels like two

I just want you to know in case it doesn’t show
I genuinely appreciate your confidence in me.

Of course I know that you need more
Of what I turned from years before
As long as you’re here, as I go through
I can finally prove my love for you.

You came to me and asked for more,
I asked myself and it’s you I adore.
But if you don’t want what I can do
Then I will never prove my love for you.

I know it was hard for you
When we were together and still
It feels like two

I just want you to know it doesn’t always show
I genuinely appreciate your confidence in me.

.any more to come?.

we stayed in and ate ourselves some light
that goes with some wine
a goats brie and a pasta you could write
your memoirs on

one year
any more to come?

We stayed in and brought our friends to us
For food and wine
A green papaya salad and a rendang that totally
Blew our minds.

One year
Any more to come?

.inland sea.

.inland sea.

From this height your see the truth
The dry bed of an inland sea
Everything here dies and revives
From water you can’t see

And it’s so easy to forget
When it’s been so long
Since you’ve been wet

They’re not the healthy leaves that they somehow look like
Dry veins just cut right through the wounds of a loosing fight
And now the rains come back like a blow
The landscape must concede to

And it’s so easy to forget

From this height you see the truth
Of a nightmare inland sea
Everything is formed and it dies
By water you can’t see
