about

this is a song about a real event in my life. i wrote it in september 2018, for my album anhedonia. remember that?

lyrics

i jumped out of a moving car today
i sat against the road decreased my activity
all the colors in a moving array
when i close my eyes all i see is that and you
sit down on the road with me
the white lines mean nothing when you don’t use
i will lift up the asphalt sea
so we can be under the highway together

the car drives over me
i will lay down and accept this god only knows
what i’d be without you see
thanks for noticing i will vacuum my act
nothing for infinity
it sure sounds enticing i should try it out
australian city
stuck under a tree i will not sleep until i know
til i know know no no

a whisper cuts through the adamant air
forcing it to separate for the sake
of information that rears its ugly head
it wouldn’t know how much time to take
my eyes cut through this unforgiving screen
just preventing my ability to wake
my brain wonders exactly what you mean
i’d like to know how many pills to take

i jumped off a building today
i didn’t actually but the dream was vivid
you didn’t know what to say
when i hit the ground i jolted to my feet
i’d take it over reality
it was so much better than what i thought about
and you know what i mean
different kinds of love are possible and i wish they weren’t

wishes don’t come true
wishes never come true

i jumped out of a moving car today
