Lyrics

say what you want

Written By: ezra holbrook

SAY WHAT YOU WANT

maybe no one heard you when you were learning how to speak
is that really how
you thought the volume was up so loud
maybe misunderstood
maybe you were overlooked
a quiet diamond in the rough
but you've been quiet long enough

a whispered scream
I'm awakened from a dream
you clench your fists like you did
you were such a frustrated little kid
your circuits overloaded
you held on till you exploded
its not lost its only missing
always there but never listening
I know its

something, you can't quite say it
a heart that you can't unbreak and
sometimes you feel that its missing
you can say what you want, I'm listening
something, you can't quite say it
a past that you can't unmake and
sometimes you feel that its missing
you can say what you want

a childhood photograph
a picture perfect map
of how much worse could it get
you were always so upset
slow down and take a breath
I heard every word you said
can't you see I'm listening now?

Tell me what's the matter now, baby?
I've never seen you so upset
you don't need to hammer home your point
'cuz you'll never be ignored again

maybe no one heard you when you were learning how to speak
maybe no one understands
your teary eyes and your wringing hands
just send me your petition
I'm in range of your transmission
you only have to speak it
and i won't make you repeat it.

kill the part of me that cared

TRYING TO KILL THE PART OF ME THAT CARED

I'm not drinking
I'm not lying awake
no I wasn't thinking about it, I'm not lost without it
not dialing your number, not hanging up the phone
words that come a minute too late
not talking to the dial tone

and I'm not trying to say you didn't treat me fair
I'm just trying to kill the part of me that cared

I'm not wasting my time
I'm not wasting my breath
not giving up the ghost
I'm just giving up on myself
I got eyes like glass, i feel like I'm cracked in half
put another one down and maybe try to laugh

I'm not trying to say you didn't treat me fair
I'm just trying to kill the part of me that cared

I'm just trying to kill the part of me that talks about you, won't forget about you
I'm just trying to kill the part of me that's mad about you
in spite of all the fucked up things you do.
