lyrics

sure it’s a calming notion, perpetual in motion
but I don’t need the comfort of any lies
for I have seen the ending and there is no ascending rise

back when I was younger, was told by other youngsters
that my end will be torture beneath the earth
‘cuz I don’t see what they see when death is staring at me
I see a window, a limit, to live it, or not at all

if you could pull the lever to carry on forever
would your life even matter anymore?
sure it’s a calming notion, perpetual in motion
but it’s not what you signed up for

I’m sure there won’t always be sunshine
but there’s this momentary beam of light
you don’t have to wait those salty decades
to get through the gate it’s all in front of your face
I’m sure there won’t always be sunshine
I’m sure there won’t always be sunshine
but there’s this momentary beam of light

I could cross the ocean in a fit of devotion
for every shining second this fragile body beckons
you think you’re owed it better believing ancient letters
sure it’s a calming notion but it’s a lie

Their blistering psych-anthem "Dysphoric" took home Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. ... more
