Headstones – Teeth & Tissue

Spending time in abandoned hotels
Well that's where I went just to hammer it out
And there's little left of me here but teeth and tissue
It's so hard, so hard to be cautious
When you swim this close to the bottom
All we collect is ourselves and abuse
You said you would, and then you wouldn't
Maybe you tried, but you just couldn't
There's nothing left of me here but teeth and tissue
Teeth & tissue
We all got problems, I got problems of my own and
I choose to solve them, by setting them afloat
I just seem to feel better when they're out of view
You said you would and then you wouldn't
Maybe you tried, but you just couldn't
There's nothing left of us dear but teeth and tissue
Teeth & tissue
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever come up, come up
The lines are twisted and the mask came off
Building speed in abandoned hotels, well that's
Where I went here just to hammer it out
And there's nothing left of me here but the truth
No longer wonder just what they meant
I wash my hands in the discipline
Sew it all back up with the glue
You said you would and then you wouldn't
Maybe you tried, but you just couldn't
There's nothing left of us but the glue
Teeth and tissue

One More Move
Talk talk and dream what exactly do you believe
Looking for a thing that never wavers
The sum of a trillion parts
1/3 water and the rest is scotch
You believe in God and green Lifesavers

Glass thoughts and the company
Does little more than give me the creeps
They don't stop until they're winded
I tried just to hammer it shut
Gave it all but it ain't enough
I didn't get here today I descended

I'm halfway with it sometimes
Well just enough to break my fall
I can almost hear them calling
It's my brain radio that's all

Cold now well you lost the stride
You leave the length of the road behind
There is no push there is no fever
Well hell it ain't such a change
I see the face and the lives they made
There ain't no depth it don't get deeper

The radio made me
Because the radio played
The radio saved me
Because the radio plays
