lyrics

I Knew Better

I was lost, upstate, On a wave of psychadelic
urges and dirges and beaches of the heart
Someone screamed, and the sky sung seconds
As we faded and fell like cinematic art

Over here, With the stone cold nights
I can’t sleep without pasting up pictures in my mind
Of home, where nothing ever changes
It’s caught in a current of double time

I knew better
Times like these never come without a price
We took what we could
But we all left something sweet behind

I was down, Run down
I was drowning in tides of friend’s friends
I was lost, Double-crossed and alone
With gunslinger fingers ready by the phone

Oh you know better you say, “nothing changes here”
But I know when I’m gone it’ll all disappear

I knew better
Times like these never come without a price
We took what we could
But we all left something sweet behind
