Jig Is Up

I’ve been working on some random stuff here and there and this is one of those things. I actually have a full group of lyrics finished and ready to go, so I’m hoping to release them next month too. More news on that soon though. For now, here’s the current version of some lyrics I wrote afterwards… not sure where they’ll end up (if anywhere else at all.)

 

We shut our eyes so tight

Though no one sleeps at night

Roaming like some dinosaurs

Flattened as the meteors arrive

 

It’s getting hard to think

So now we’re on the brink

Latching on like parasites

Coming back to life on puppet strings

 

There’s a penny for each thought that defines you

Split apart but it isn’t enough

Pretty soon you’ll learn the currency blinds you

When the jig is up, up, up, up

The jig is up, up, up, up

 

We hide our deepest fears

Though no one counts the years

Doubling back to reconvene

Ambushed as the rest proceed from here

 

It’s getting hard to speak

So now we’ve claimed defeat

Blowing out like dying stars

Moving fast to part with our beliefs

 

There’s a penny for each thought that defines you

Split apart but it isn’t enough

Pretty soon you’ll learn the currency blinds you

When the jig is up, up, up, up

The jig is up, up, up, up

 

With every leaf on fire

We’ve found ourselves inspired, but ain’t it strange?

Well now it’s getting cold

The frost is taking hold… of all that still remains

It still remains

 

We shut our eyes so tight

Though no one sleeps at night

Roaming like some dinosaurs

Flattened as the meteors arrive

 

There’s a penny for each thought that defines you

Split apart but it isn’t enough

Pretty soon you’ll learn the currency blinds you

When the jig is up, up, up, up

The jig is up, up, up, up

 

The jig is up, up, up, up

The jig is up, up, up, up
