​Silver Sparkler

This song is by The Jim Yoshii Pile-Up and appears on the album Picks Us Apart (2005).

It comes back to me
Like pieces of a dream I can't remember
And I don't think you took a breath
From March until September

When they sat me down and upped the dose
Said, "Son, tell us what to do?
This isn't only killing you
This isn't only killing you"

They say rats in your sinking ships
I think that you could learn something from rats
Ask them in your traps

Have you ever seen the stars
Just after the rain?
Have you ever seen the stars
Through someone else's pain?

Have you ever blacked out
With nothing in your veins?
Have you ever blacked out?
No

These days I wake up
With silver sparklers burning in my eyes
These days these days I wake up
With silver sparklers burning in my eyes

I was standing on a hill
I was on the phone with hell
I was hoping to hear something
I could understand

When I saw you walking up the road
Your love and desperation
Lighting up your face
I think it cost a dime

These days I wake up
With silver sparklers burning in my eyes
(These days, these days)
(I wake up with silver sparklers burning in my eyes)

These days these days I wake up
With silver sparklers burning in my eyes
(These days, these days)
(I wake up with silver sparklers burning in my eyes)

Oh, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, I am sorry
Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, I am sorry
I'm sorry
