a dark night and a lost soul
a new companion from another world
i get the feeling we won’t make it back this time
you never know what you’re going to find
or which convention it will hide behind
but a new horizon is a sight worth looking to see

a black heart and a dead soul
an invitation to oblivion
the same faces staring back at me
i used to think i was looking for love
but it was purpose I was looking for
and i can see that you never believed in me

your heart, your soul, your intellect
you document your life to death
seek affirmation from your peers
like minds to drive away your fears

take it, take it fast – take it, take it slow
you’ll never get to heaven ‘til you lose control
and the one you burn for is the last one who should know
take it to the east, take it to the west
hide the real feelings beating in your chest
and no one feels rejected when the tape ejects

i see it turn and i want it all
from your 3-piece suite to your mobile phone
it’s the same old news and the same old facts
he’s vhs, I’m betamax


from Wolves in the Streets e​.​p., released February 2, 2013
