lyrics

I hope this is my calling cause I lost my phone
He'll be round in the morning to break this still
This still is sorting out the faulty claims
It's still pushing me around it's hurting me a lot
It took my aspiration, now we're lost

Out among the stars, the tree tops and shards of light that you make
From your fingertips they shot the moonbeams down
Now they're dancing on your head real close to the ground
There's no escaping now, the cycle is vicious
it left me blowing 100 hopeless kisses your way
Through the signals, the radiation to me

All the sudden we knew everything
We’re children on information
Laying waste to what's around you
We’re children on information

He stole the sight from my right eye
he put it under glass, shot through its side
We're still running from the sun
Do you think I'm alright with the way you stopped mid stride?
Like the muscle that trailed so slow from the weight of your body, from the the weight of your soul
This cog maintained despite our silence
‘Till bricks finally broke In twos in threes
in the crumbling of the lee that always more than weak
The sinners laid down so sweetly next to me
I sang to them so softly
We thought of you, of how I’m in decay like you

All the sudden we knew everything
We’re children on information
Staring at our palms till our eyes turned bloodshot
We’re children on information
