from arms to arms we travel high here’s one side we’re fading in we’re fading out we’re trading passion for comfort from bed to bed we travel light such a lie we’re fading in we’re fading out we’re trading passion for comfort he’s on the left I’m on the right for tonight I’m choosing sides

I’m not kidding myself that I could’ve saved you cut my nails for the trouble they never make me prove it I’m taking the main roads and haunting the habitats it breezes like high school like last fall and the years before I’ll incite it like a riot but I wouldn’t care to own you shut your face you’ll unlock it come back and finish what you started I’m taking the main roads and haunting the habitats with bruises like high school and whimpering, repeating I’m driving the main roads and everywhere pickup trucks I’m straining my neck around recreating the scene where they smashed the clocks

my skull is an hourglass I open my mouth sand rushes out we’re crazed in the night we don’t want to go home we won’t go home alone to the piles of failures and sighs and forgotten lines in bed the film unspools serves me right stab me in the eyes we’re crazed in the night we don’t want to go home we won’t go home alone to the piles of failures and sighs and forgotten lines sweetest lioness she is me: she must flee take your filthy paws off my pride slain and birthed again we are green, we are green! we’re paying the price for stifling envy my hair is the blanket, the blanket when we’re seeing red you will comfort me then we’re crazed in the night we don’t want to go home we won’t go home alone to the piles of failures and sighs and forgotten lines

Julia will go when she does what she came to do obsessed with goodbyes since her long-ago exile it is just a test: to investigate the dark, to remain stainless trying on deception like she tried you on for size give in, get it out she’ll tell you when you’re done this is not a torch: this is an experiment giving you her best, it left you unimpressed alpha goes to waste: handsome and inhabiting her grey space trying on invention like you tried her on for size give in, get it out she’ll tell you when she comes give in, get it out she’ll tell you when you’re done avert your gaze it’s overwhelming what’s on her face you’ve been withholding a drop to drown forget your penance you’re going down, down you’ll never surface

the art of war the blackest blue I love it when you call me out heat don’t stay or find the steadier flame don’t talk! hit the lights shake all night callous my tongue it’s Eve’s new year well, I don’t care so quit holding out! heat don’t stay or find the steadier flame don’t talk! hit the lights shake all night "platonium vocabulaire” yeah, I don’t care so quit holding out! heat don’t stay or find the steadier flame don’t talk! hit the lights shake all night

count your blessings and think you know everything while I play “deluca” again “buck up, buttercup,” she used to tell me each morning we passed in the hall she had it in for me I’ll relate it you’ll forget it you don’t have to stay out all night you are my favorite I’ll kiss you later you sit collecting your thoughts she had it in for me but I haven’t been angry since I saw her sleeping in the backseat on a ball field my rosy cheeks were a curse each one a treason if it’s our little secret well, then, half of it’s mine she had it in for me but I haven’t been angry since I saw you sleeping roll your own

shaking the satellites from their hiding places some collide on my dime we go our own way tea time’s a nightcap I’m already gone your checkmate calls loner springtime the comets came we thought for sure we’d aligned but not that time we go our own way rocket twin showdown I’m already gone your sweet tooth falls over I spin you spin beside

standoff, stand down, who will blink first? arms lengthing keeps me from saying it to your face you mix the girls behind the scenes with bad advice from magazines oh, I get it, and now you’re gonna get it we’re whiskey versus wine we are human so we stay we pull we ride we run you could sweeten on the way down but I will burn nightcap nightshirt proves troublesome to “friendly” a.m. radio sleepover well, all alone and wasting time with you is never wasted time after midnight, milkshake on a mission we’re whiskey versus wine we are human so we stay we pull we ride we run you could sweeten on the way down but I will burn and we can’t apply “pearls before swine” I’m not that precious and you’re not so unkind so drink up and drown out the crowd and your doubt carouse, consume, still I could not forget what secret cookie fortune read so when you see me dancing by, put the old flame in your eye and please say it you’ll never ever say it we’re whiskey versus wine we are human so we stay we pull we ride we run you could sweeten on the way down but I will burn
