about

Almost entirely DAW instrumentation except for a little square wave melody on the turns and in the second verse made by the Mother 32. Check out the notes for FOIA to see how I made the ooh's

lyrics

i could never dream of the blood on your nightstand
i guess it's just a thing that we'll have to paint white again
i've learned all the patterns from the way you speak
all the monotone melodies that trickle through your teeth

i know about the guy who had broken your heart
you said you never loved him but you might have loved a part
i have never stopped feeling like you're gonna leave
i guess it's just another relational instinct

i feel i've been stabbed with your daddies' bowie knife
the one in the case that lights up at night
he got it in a gas station in west texas
he swears he found it in an old guys' mansion

i never thought i'd see you cry that way
where you can't stand on your feet and your body shakes
those stupid little candles in mason jars
i'm gonna burn my wrists and close up the scars

i feel i've been stabbed with your daddies bowie knife
the one in the case that lights up at night
he got it in a gas station in west texas
he swears he found it in an old guys' mansion

everyone is growing up in marginal ways
and you say that i'm growing up just the same
while you're wanting someone who's happy with a desk job
to bring home the bacon and keep their hands soft

I could never dream of the blood on your nightstand
i guess it's just a thing that we'll have to paint white again
i've learned all the patterns from the way you speak
all the monotone melodies that trickle through your teeth
