lyrics

HALF A MAN

Are you a part of me
Or a beautiful monster in my imagination?
Falling from both my eyes
You held this torch for me
All the years when I was following you blind
Only half a man

Don’t wait till the cops be calling
And the ambulance singing in the morning light
It’s never goodbye
And that’s alright

Two hearts and both beats skip
Really don’t fit together
And this forever is too short now
Really want to sit together
And block out the world that’s been making me sad
Scattered distracted like half of a man
And I’m gone stressing
Cigarettes just to get me calm
Lessons not learned
That’s awkward when my son smiles
But I’m off earth high
In a pink hearse
Trauma got me injured
And I medicate but I’ll never run away from this world
I’m with you

Are you a part of me
Or a beautiful monster in my imagination?
Falling from both my eyes
You held this torch for me
All the years when I was following you blind
Only half a man


FInd change in my confines
In my constraints with a calm mind
I can find strength when I’m weak
Welding soul blades in this hell fire, seek
Other ways to get my wiggles out
Nightmares coming vicious when I’m sober
Trying to understand what it’s about
Squirming in my personality
Words limiting reality
I smoke to escape harsh gravity
Double edged cause when the fun is dead
Poison takes its toll
Take it too far you’ll end up martyr rock and roll
That’s why I quit drinking
Been thinking clearer still in prison though
Addiction takes control
Of every action slowly killing me I know

Are you a part of me
Or a beautiful monster in my imagination?
Falling from both my eyes
You held this torch for me
All the years when I was following you blind
Only half a man

Don’t wait till the cops be calling
And the ambulance singing in the morning light
It’s never goodbye
And that’s alright

Too close to that landslide
New ghost when my man died
On a noose from the tree
With the Lucifer leaves
Leave me alone in my bones a disease
That’s that moth to light shit
Cost your life quick
Icarus love that shine a bit too much
He can’t quit, trying to ice it
Cold shower, red eyed temptation
Got the best of me
Trying to be jedi
But then the other half of me
Laughed at me and lit up a cigarette casually
And said, “we’re all gonna die, we’re all gonna die,
Live happily..”
