The Weakends

Album: My Dinosaur Life (2010)
  • Quicksand as a coat of arms,
    Loose leaf, and some liquid fiction
    Last rites every Friday night,
    Am I weaker with the lights on?

    High tide tight around the neck,
    The same song everybody's bleeding
    What makes me so different?
    The insides work the same

    You ever fear the dark impressions of your future?
    The slightest gravestone whisper?
    The stillness of your heart?
    I feel it growing dark,
    A fever inching deeper,
    A fever inching to the core

    I'll kick tomorrow,
    Fight back at the pouring rain.
    I'll send the weak ends down the drain, down the drain
    I'll kick tomorrow,
    Fight back at the pouring rain
    I'll send the weak ends down the drain, down the drain

    Shorelines all around the world,
    Bright lights and some heavy breathing
    Lipstick and the dagger's kiss
    Just a figment of a feeling

    Hands pressed up against the chest,
    Holding out for the big connection
    Last lunge never looked so good,
    It's a junk show all the way

    As years go crashing by,
    I think of all I've pondered
    So many minutes wandered,
    So many things undone
    I've tried to figure out
    How many lives I've wasted waiting for the perfect time to start

    I'll kick tomorrow,
    Fight back at the pouring rain
    I'll send the weak ends down the drain, down the drain
    I'll kick tomorrow,
    Fight back at the pouring rain
    I'll send the weak ends down the drain, down the drain

    I'll kick tomorrow
    I'll send the weak ends
    I'll kick tomorrow
    I'll send the weak ends
    I'll kick tomorrow
    I'll send the weak ends
    I'll kick tomorrow (fight back at the pouring rain)
    I'll send the weak ends (fight back at the pouring rain)

    I'll kick tomorrow,
    Fight back at the pouring rain
    I'll send the weak ends down the drain, down the drain.
    I'll kick tomorrow,
    Fight back at the pouring rain
    I'll send the weak ends down the drain, down the drain Writer/s: C. STEIN, CHARLES FARRAR, D. HARRY, ERITZA LAUES, KENNY LATTIMORE, L. KAFI, T. HUTSON, TROY TAYLOR
