about

About the way we deceive ourselves sometimes, into thinking that we are the protagonist.

lyrics

If the dust was your feelings,
If the dust was your feelings,
I guess I was on my own
I guess I was on my own

I was good, I was good
At weaving a story
The pieces fit into place
I did it all alone

When the words stopped
When the words stopped working
Dropping off the island
I made my own home

I was good, I was good
I thought I was good at something
I made a garden in the night sky
When the weed stopped growing

Withered hand enantiomers
Crumbled stone
If the dust was your feelings,
I guess I was on my own

I was a poor, I was a poor excuse
For good intentions, rage, and abuse
Distractions disintegrated
I was a good friend
I was a good friend to lose

I was good, I was good
At being a true lover
If only that were true
I was good at making excuses
For all the shit I put you through
Yes

I was good at feeling high
At feeling left behind
I worked it into my mythos
Perpetual loss; I wrote it a million times
Yes

I was poor, I was a poor excuse
For good intentions, rage and abuse
Distractions disintegrated
I was a good friend
I was a good friend to lose

I was good, I was good
At weaving a story
The pieces fit into place
I did it all alone

When the words stopped
When the words stopped working
Dropping off the island
I made my own home

I was good, I was good
I thought I was good at something
I made a garden in the night sky
When the weed stopped growing

Withered hand enantiomers
Crumbled stone
If the dust was your feelings,
I guess I was on my own

Withered hand enantiomers
Crumbled stone
If the dust was your feelings,
I guess I was on my own
