Album: Stay Positive (2008)

  • I guess we met a couple a bona-fide angels
    But they all seemed kinda fat and fatigued
    And now we're trying to match their mouths to the screens
    Match their heads to their dreams

    Everybody's searching out the softest seat
    All dialed up for the funeral feast
    Everyone's stabbing at the biggest piece
    Clever kids kissing on a [unknown] retreat

    Now I'm not really sure we were lovers
    Or if it was just some kind of car crash
    And now we're trying to find a DNA match
    To match their heads to their hats

    Everybody's reaching for the sharpest knife
    Legs wide open on the opening night
    Everybody's bathing in the laser lights
    Clever kids screwing with some [unknown] bites

    Sunday morning, sidewalks flattered
    Feverish in stylish tatters
    Damn, this used to seem like [unknown]
    I remember when it mattered

    Can't get over what's transpired
    Left home virgins, came back vampires
    Built it out like back-scratched choirs
    Really dead or really tired

    Everybody's coming on their navy sheets
    Everybody's coming on their navy sheets
    Everybody wants to suck on something sweet
    Everybody's coming on their navy sheets

    Everybody's coming on their navy sheets
    Everybody's coming on their navy sheets Writer/s: C FINN, J KUBLER
