My Own Private South Oaks

This song is by Crime in Stereo and appears on the split EP Crime In Stereo / Kill Your Idols (2003) by Kill Your Idols and Crime in Stereo.

The weight's been slipping away for days
Sleeping on the floor and trying hard not to breathe
It seems this just might be unravelling me
I woke up just in time
To watch my friends fall apart
I fear I've been dreaming for far too long
It's not the silence that haunts
It's the dark

So I've been counting the missed steps
And scrawling them all down
In a notebook marked second chances
I used to keep around
It was mostly sketches of deep skies
And a few other places that I've been
The phone number of a fellow tortured soul
I know I'll call once I learn to let people in

Restart. Rewind
Reframe the image to a legible size
Stand straight. Don't hide
The bloodstains you wear so well with pride
Encouragement
Like healing would ever need a reason...
They're only telling me the good things
Any more bad news they just might find me dead

Focus on this:
Take time to go heal on your own
Focus on anything
Restart a heart thicker than bone

Second chance-faded memories
And all those times I watched in awe
Always somewhat slipping
Now I'm bored again

For days and for weeks, (Focus on this)
Never lose time again
Never lose time watching it all. (Focus on anything)
Strengthen the ones that have kept me whole
Focus on this:
Take time to go heal on your own
Focus on anything
Restart a heart thicker than bone
