lyrics

Three A.M.
Losing it again, love.
Caught awake in bed,
Feeling like the dead dusk.

She kills me sweetly,
She's a loaded clip of antifreeze.
I swear I haven't slept in weeks.

I wish to rest my head
In an imageless retreat.
She wakes me like a crook,
Come to steal me from my
Sleep.

Each day is on repeat,
An alarm inside my head.
Slip away into a deep dream.
Am I better off than dead?

Broken glass,
I bask in the ambrosia.
Erase my facts,
Collapse into composure.

I climb these crowded lines,
I'm traffic on the BQE.
I wander shapeless through the streets.

Blind, wasted, overlooked
Throwing whispers to the breeze.
Helpless, she has me hooked,
Like I'm tearing at the seams.

Each day is on repeat,
An alarm inside my head.
Slip away into a deep dream.
Am I better off than dead?

Am I better off than dead?
