lyrics

Are you still there or has the line been cut?
Glad you picked up, now could you pick me up?
Is he in you, or is he out as planned?
No, I'm sober
At least I think I am

These feelings are intransient
Motives known, this drink is setting in
You've held your ground, but your gravity grows tense
Losing your balance

We lived before
In smoke and summer winds aflame
I never stopped to see how wrong it was to stay

Tell the narcissist our hard-wired parts are far from parked
Alarmed cars though scarred can still part the dark

Is he as great as you make him to be
Or do you make him to be greater than he is?
Framing photos of your nights in bars
Am I to revel in his progress?

Are you still there or has the line been cut?
Glad you picked up, now could you pick me up?
Is he in you, or is he out as planned?
No, I'm sober
At least I think I am

Forgetting our own autonomy
We let these hotel calls consume our past
Go on
Breathe him in

I burned your good intentions at my workplace
All the girls laughed and filmed the scene just in case
Since then I've been feeling so unwanted
We should go out sometime
Just ditch your new thrill

Are you still there or has the line been cut?
Glad you picked up, now could you pick me up?
Is he in you, or is he out as planned?
No, I'm sober
At least I think I am

(When could we make the time?)

(Without it all)
(When could we make the time?)

Death?

(When could we ever make the time?)

Cover all the bases and touch each other's faces and
Recall how we used to
Live
