The First Eviction Notice

The Lawrence Arms

A temple corroded

Eviction pending.

Embrace me, old nights

Gray sky, streetlight

Lyrical descension

Attention fading

Breathless I'm a mess

Kissless I'm in distress

I'm barely breathing

This crowning anguish, looked up nervous reflex

I've got to build up from the inside

A relapse



Repression's smiling spitefully

Longing for you to sew up my seams

I'm barely breathing

I've abandoned old identities, skin I couldn't fit into, songs I couldn't write, my voice will fade into this starless night

Can I get much blinder?

Can I kick myself much harder?

Have I accepted this, to torture myself?

You can't see me

Have I invented you?

I'm barely breathing
