Lyrics and vocals by Adam and the Flood


last night
I felt right
for the first first time in my life
in my life

I can imagine how difficult
interactions feels when the
subtraction is real
divided by fuck how you feel

The pity party was canceled
we handled the invite poorly
we left the nails stuck in the mantel
so we could pretend art isn’t boring
We’ve been vessels
in a shallow stream a collection of water logged phrases
in a book with no last page
and sticky note agendas
pretenders without instruments
sheltered in a castle of debt
full of promise and salaries
that we haven’t seen yet
I want that undying devotion
that matching tattoo
that sacrifice it all
that gripped fist to see it all through

I’ve been saying the same words
rejuvenating the echo
playing the same old songs
cause i’m refusing to settle

Older than I look
Body more broke than my age
Looking balance in these sounds
Trying to get lost in the wavs

These kids might drive me past the point
of caring
but as long as the drums are blaring
I’m still preparing
for the final landing
Complaining when it’s raining
too hot in the sun
I’m too much for my closest
and i work hard to never be outdone
abuser of my lungs
king of a forest fire
I’ve broken the code of the liars
and lost focus towards what I aspire
head down towards the current
final breath for a while
Atheist with his head in the clouds
racing gods on miracle mile
Use the grief like kerosene
let it light up your feed
We’re past what we want
we’ve got to get what we need
I need an audience that’s open
I need hearts willing to work
I need to finally figure out what my bleeding is worth
But you see it too
You see the cracks in the mirror
You see the depths of despair
and the know skies getting clearer
Older than I look
Body more broke than my age
Looking balance in these sounds
Trying to get lost in the wavs
