lyrics

burn victim (a day that will never come)

I can't sleep. It's like my head is on fire.
I'm in love but I'm a terrible liar.
I'm cold from your nuclear winter,
my half-life fades while my thoughts are slipping. I
don't know what I was waiting for. all the people that
I adored are now the people that I ignore all trapped
inside my revolving door and I...

I'm waiting for a day that'll never come.

In spite of ourselves... In spite of ourselves?
can we spend the night together?
is the answer in the question?
with your shiny, shiny boots of leather
one hand hard, the other a feather.
should we even be together?
is the answer in the question?

I'm waiting for a day that'll never come.

I can't sleep. it's like my head is on fire.
I'm in love but I'm a terrible liar.
I'm cold from your nuclear winter,
my half-life fades while my thoughts are slipping. I
don't know what I was waiting for. all the people that
I adored are now the people that I ignore all trapped
inside my revolving door and I...

I'm hurting like a burn victim.

They broke up in 2010 a year after losing Plattsmier to suicide. Bassist Ronan Bradley played for the last year of the group. ... more
