Kyoto

  • Day off in Kyoto
    I got bored at the temple
    Looked around at the 7-11
    The band took the speed train
    Went to the arcade
    I wanted to go but I didn't
    You called me from a payphone
    They still got pay phones
    It cost a dollar a minute
    To tell me you're getting sober
    And you wrote me a letter
    But I don't have to read it

    I'm gonna kill you
    If you don't beat me to it
    Dreaming through Tokyo skies
    I wanted to see the world
    Then I flew over the ocean
    And I changed my mind

    Sunset's been a freak show
    On the weekend
    So I've been driving out to the suburbs
    To park at the Goodwill
    And stare at the chem trails
    With my little brother
    He said you called on his birthday
    You were off by like ten days
    But you get a few points for trying
    Remember getting the truck fixed
    When you let us drive it
    Twenty-five felt like flying

    I don't forgive you
    But please don't hold me to it
    Born under Scorpio skies
    I wanted to see the world
    Through your eyes until it happened
    Then I changed my mind

    Guess I lied
    I'm a liar
    Who lies
    'Cause I'm a liar Writer/s: Marshall Vore, Morgan Nagler, Phoebe Bridgers
