lyrics

No regrets
No elation
No reports of information
Quiet on the line like a positive mind
That’s been spitting on the ashes of this town

Suicide…off the table
Ready and willing
Feeling able
More or less but I must stress
It’s important to remember that we look our best

I lost everything I once knew
The things that we do to forget
Hoping it all was true
Knowing it all was a trick
The things that we do to forget

Put on a face
Drown it in prose
Never let on what they already know
The great deceiver of those branded believers
Who sympathize

Psychology only goes so far
Drugs can work
Or you can go to a bar
Step from your thrown with your positive drone
Admit to what you’re feeling
Go carve it in stone

I lost everything I once knew
The things that we do to forget
Hoping it all was true
Knowing it all was a trick
Everything I once knew
The things that we do to forget
Hoping it all was true
Knowing it all was a trick
The things that we do to forget

She used to live in an old brick mansion
On the edge of town
Her father was a prominent businessman
‘Till he became unwound
They found him face down in the riverbed
With a broken heart
And after the funeral they lowered him into the ground

I lost everything I once knew
The things that we do to forget
Hoping it all was true
Knowing it all was a trick
The things that we do to forget
