Not Perfect, But Still Nice.

Album Art Work by Joel Swick


I was born with my tail between my legs
Always causing something better off unsaid
And you were a liar who was slightly under fed
You wore your tshirts with no room for his skin

I had always liked you better
But you were always made to shatter
And I heard almost every lie you spoke
Heaven is a mindset that you'll never know

When you were younger you were a captain to us all
Batton twirler you would never let us fall
You were bludgeoned and belligerently made
You were a liar, a shadow an angel on the pavement
Feeling everything so intimately
Your words would come when you would sing
But you spoke it so inarticulately

I could tear you apart
I could tear you apart
I could tear you apart
