Float the Script

lyrics

Take that needle out my skin and I'll be walking on fresh water
Before I ever sinned and before I was a daughter
Before I had a soul assuming I still got one now
And all truth meant was just doubt

What I meant to say I didn't, what I didn't say, I said
We might've only been a bit younger, but we weren't working towards our death
And home was just another word synonymous with friends
Our lives weren't a means to an end

Hell, I guess everything is cyclical or maybe we just blew it
But everyone we loved, at least they all just fuckin' knew it
Like that one time we took acid and we couldn't move our mouths
Still the beat of hearts synced aloud

So I have to go back there, I have to go back there
'Fore everything done fell apart
and everything was just starting
and we felt pretty damn good

But our good intentions didn't make for good decisions
I guess I should've paid attention to my folks a little more
My good intentions, they just made for shit decisions
I guess I should've feigned some interest in you a little more

What I wouldn't give to go back there, I forget, forgot and forgave
The promised land seemed promising until we came of age
It's like only thing I ever learned was how to dig my grave
And push everything good away

Now I'm holding flashlights up to every faulted thing
It's like the closer that I get to good, the closer that I ain't
My reveries are just a noose, hanging from my fate
I guess that they're one and the same

If the iron in my blood is bricks then build me a new me
If the purity I never had is still an anomaly
If all the feelings that I felt I should've said in threes
My life is a dichotomy

So I have to go back there, I have to go back there
'Fore everything done fell apart
and everything was just starting
and we felt pretty damn good

But our good intentions didn't make for good decisions
I guess I should've paid attention to my folks a little more
My good intentions, they just made for shit decisions
I guess I should've feigned some interest in you a little more

One more step back away and I'll crush you if you take it
Home's where I gotta go, I guess home is where you fake it
All my friends they used to know, but now they've gone and changed it...
Well...shit...who the fuck cares anymore?

But our good intentions didn't make for good decisions
I guess I should've paid attention to my folks a little more
My good intentions, they just made for shit decisions
I guess I should've feigned some interest in you a little more
