Berlin Got Blurry

Album: Human Performance (2016)
  • Donair wrappers unwrapped and extinguished
    Crotch of a rollie inside yellow fingers
    Nothing lasts but nearly everything lingers in life

    Cellphone service is not that expensive
    But that takes commitment and you just don't have it
    Feels so effortless to be a stranger
    But feeling foreign is such a lonely habit

    You can't crop yourself out of the picture
    Out-of-focus but still framed inside

    Well, Berlin got blurry
    And my heart started hurting for you

    Loudmouthed living got you some attention
    And second chances given without doubt
    'Guess you've got a history but it's not worth a mention tonight

    Kind ears captive to the beers you've purchased
    Sipping through your seeds of plaster confession
    Telling pretty stories, is it your sole purpose?
    Telling everybody that you've learned your lesson

    But no-one's falling for that nice-guy bullshit
    They waited years, you can wait one night

    Well Berlin got blurry
    When my eyes started telling it to

    Funny how it charms you, that Teutonic frankness
    Listen and it arms you with a new kind of patience
    Maybe it alarms you 'cause it tastes so familiar and wild

    French fries, ketchup, hot-dog are the main ingredients
    Swears in flawless english it's the best in town
    Funny how a sameness cannot be distinguished
    Strangeness is relieving when you're pointed out

    Emails, poems, slogans on example
    Of three things I can't unify

    Well, Berlin got blurry
    As my thoughts all hurried to you Writer/s: SEAN YEATON, ANDREW SAVAGE, MAXWELL SAVAGE, AUSTIN BROWN
