lyrics

all the words and all the pain
nothing wasted nothing gained
same old story same old fate
no matter what the ship will burn
and many waters wait.

and i am someone else
and bit by bit i kill myself
invite you in for just a spell
to judge my every thought

and many waters couldn't free
the fire you build inside of me
you think you know what love should be
but i know what it's not

and i was ill equipped
to navigate a sinking ship
and pry it from the savage grip
of flames that we had fought

and so we watched the cabin fill
to drown the fire we couldn’t kill
and i don’t know what love is still,
but i know what it’s not

And we remember all the pain
The aimless venom that they sprayed
[The blameless victims they remain]
Lest we forget the ones who
kept us underfoot
And we recall the tragic sound
Of broken people breaking down
Lest we forget the ones that
we misunderstood

and i was just too ill equipped
to navigate a sinking ship
and pry it from the desperate grip
of currents we had fought

and so we watched the cabin fill
to drown the fire we couldn’t kill
and i don’t know what love is still,
but i know what it’s not

I’ll swim back up the way I came
And I will never be the same
And though I have myself to blame
i gave it all i’ve got

and you can throw a thousand fits
and stick me full of voodoo pins
i still don't know what real love is
but i know what it's not

about

The Ugly Facade Texas

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
