Behind the tears

It's like the day has turned to rust, like every dream's been sealed shut,
like every door has closed before we've gotten out.

Cars crash through the streets,
The West end waves break city heats,
The East Coast storms fill in the sky,
Winter weekends,
Cold, unbearable,
Life is so terrible.

Shots ring out in blind stellar night time,
Town lights come alive like a land mine,
Eyes wide up in five second intervals,
Unpredictable, life is a miracle.

I can't close my eyes,
The East end barrels, its summer time,
The West Coast lives got butterflies,
So literal,
Cold, unbearable,
Life is so terrible.

Kids live fearlessly and curious lives,
Grow up to be so serious,
Lost time, broken dreams,
So usual,
Unpredictable, life is a miracle.
