  • Maybe I could swim into your thoughts like your drugs do
    Paralyze your body
    Sick and tired of waking up too
    Burning eyes and cigarettes
    I'm falling through the couch like a suicide mission tonight
    My God, here comes the downside

    Wild eyes of terror pray for sex on the beach while
    Oceans of kerosene will soak into me
    I'm not meant for this world, I just don't see the point
    Don't think about it, don't over think about it

    And life is a joke
    But everything's riding on me tonight
    Been counting the stars and scars
    How I'm becoming a work of art

    Desperate times and desperate measures
    I come so close, my hopes are severed by the downside
    A million waves in the ocean crash at once to make you smile

    The whispered words "You'd better hide the bullets"
    You stayed on the phone and talked to me day and night
    Trigger my nightmare once again
    And it's fucking loaded in hand

    And we'll let the fire rage
    The smoke and the drowning flames
    My bedroom computer light is the only menace to my new faux wooden blinds

    In desperate times and desperate measures
    I come so close, my hopes are severed by the downside
    A million waves in the ocean crash at once to make you smile

    Now, I only pray when it all goes down
    I'll be surrounded by all of the ones I've loved and cared about
    And then burn it down

    (Go!)

    (Down)

    And life is a joke
    But at least I can love you, naked and tattooed
    Counting the stars and scars
    And if the pain is a sound, let's slow it down

    Desperate times and desperate measures
    I come so close, my hopes are severed by the downside
    A million waves in the ocean crash at once to make you smile

    Now, I only pray when it all goes down
    I'll be surrounded by all of the ones I've loved and cared about
    And then burn it down

    Your serotonin's gone
    The kerosene is gone
    The sunset is gone
    So hold on

    Your serotonin's gone
    The kerosene is gone
    The sunset is gone
    So hold on Writer/s: MICHAEL FUENTES, VICTOR FUENTES
