Animal Strings

This song is by Call It Arson and appears on the EP Animal Strings (2006).

If you believe everything I say,
What kind of relation is that?
And when I wake up, would you remind me,
Exactly who I'm trying to be.

Nobody needs to be left behind, (x3)
Words can't match those chains that bruise and bind, no.
When I took the oath I'll write my own book.
I'm shooting all the streetlights that I see.
Animal Strings holding,
Holding up the flacid form of truth.
It's just one of those things.
Guess it's one of those things.

Please shut your mouth,
'Cause the picture's bigger.
Stop bitching about those problems you might have.
The truth's no one cares so use discretion.
I'd rather have you look me in the eye.
So use discretion,
I'd rather have you look me in the eye.
It's just one of those things.

Yeah I know you're talking
Yeah I'm listening yes I am

For you, and you and you
You have to do what you need to do.
For everything they've ever put us through,
The bruise remains, the blacks the blue.
Everyone becomes a part of you,
Even if they're not trying to.

It feels so strange,
When friends become ghosts,
But everyone's got a past to deny.
