They are all in all in between all in all in between there are people inside me boating far and floating free It's all in all the same all in all the same i hope they've built the home they see with little rooms for all their kids they're all in all in between all in all in between this tree house can house us all come inside from this hard cold its all in all the same all in all the same they are free
Stunts 04:37
yesterday, you turned the motel into your home made those lightbulbs into cups eat out of my hands, cause you cut off yours feed you my hard earned piece of land on the 10th floor bathroom, people fall everyday she said "dead men don't matter to me" so i yell drag your knuckles wont you hurry up now i hope you've found new friends while the lands empty their creeping eyes follow me and those south philly scum bags take the fun out of me but theres fear in your eyes and im losing sleep
Thai Food 01:41
the car has leaks to check for days and i want you to step 10 feet away this car could crash us all today but i know i don't have money for the gas now My car disappears within my hands but i see that all the grease slides through your cheeks i want to get home before tonight but i know that you'll pull every trick in the book before we get inside, that clean hands wont pump your gas to fuck me up tonight
nine years we think I cannot speak Take 2 steps back distance is tact This chair seems clean too high to reach take 2 step back distance can lack Fall back into your home and call her own cars do not fear hits to the knees unrooted at best soil your own cars, im not here this looks real mean paralyzed at best still feel my chest Fall back into your home and call my own
Wait for them to head south Looking for those smoke signals watching for the best place to get robbed 10 dollars or a pretty young life Climb up trees till we hit the pool bailing on your own plans looking for the best place to get caught 10 dollars or a pretty young life
