Poems A Dead Boy Wrote

lyrics

Now I see that so much of life exists in little things
In the margins
Through the haze I can see my life rolling past me
So quickly
 
We try to remain alive
As we grow old
I don't consider myself sold
And there's no need for age to
Tell me what I am
And there's no need
For me to die this early
 
When fundamentally this is all
When fundamentally this is a long fucking haul
When fundamentally this is all
When fundamentally this is a long fucking haul
 
Set me free from wanting all the things I'm told I need
I won't play that game again
There's so much more that I could trade my life for
And hold on to
 
We try to remain alive
As we grow old
I don't consider myself sold
And there's no need for age to
Tell me what I am
And there's no need
For me to die this early
 
When fundamentally this is all
When fundamentally this is a long fucking haul
When fundamentally this is all
When fundamentally this is a long fucking haul
 
Now I've set this light under my soul
I don't ever wanna put it out again
And despite your every try
I'll keep my fire hot
And my every move will be forever changed
Will forever be alight
Will forever be alight
Will forever be alight
Will forever be alight

We'd like to think we sound like a mixture of Bad Religion, Dillinger Four and The Lawrence Arms... We probably sound like something else entirely. ... more
