Where It Ends Leftovers

Unlike the last leftovers, there really isn’t much to say about these lyrics.

 

Despite writing a ton of material for Where It Ends, it’s pretty slim pickings. Everything either ended up in the main group of lyrics itself or was so mind-numbingly awful that I couldn’t release it here. Maybe some of it will end up in the Fireteddy National Library if I’m feeling generous, but who knows? It’s definitely not a priority. (Trust me, I’d just be documenting it for prosperity’s sake.)

 

Anyway, the only thing of note is that writing sessions for Where It Ends overlapped slightly with Sorry For The Mess. Take Them Back was actually written during the home stretch of the previous group’s completion. As a result, it slid in here and was also the first thing that felt like a new project.

 

As for the rest? Well, the fact that I forgot two of them existed should tell you something. Still, I think that Remaining Desperation is the only thing I’d call weak. Heartbroken is one of my favourite leftovers and the others are pretty good too!

Remaining Desperation

 

Screws are loose inside my head

Somehow I feel like I’ve been dead

For years and I’ve not disappeared

But I don’t know what keeps me here

 

Maybe hope or maybe love

Since I can’t seem to get enough

I’ve gotta say that I’ve been dazed

But maybe this is just a phase

 

Squeaky wheel will get the girl

And the crazy few still run the world

What’s the point in fighting it?

What’s the point in fighting it?

 

I’m in doubt for what I know

For when I come, it’s time to go

I can’t wait or concentrate

So maybe I’ll just deviate

 

I’ll write a draft of all my plans

Where I improvise my new demands

Oh I can make it ’til I break

But he who’s lost will hesitate

 

Squeaky wheel will get the girl

And the crazy few still run the world

What’s the point in fighting it?

What’s the point in fighting it?

 

There’s no getting out of this

This apathy ain’t hit or miss

I really don’t have time to say

That I never wanted things this way

 

Defections left now to betray

To measure our decay

 

Squeaky wheel will get the girl

And the crazy few still run the world

What’s the point in fighting it?

What’s the point in fighting it?

 

What’s the point in fighting it?

Can you help me get away?

Mirroring The Past

 

Cautious are the doubters

But I’m somewhere in between

Maybe I’m just jaded now

Still a cynic for these dreams

 

It’s crazy now to say it

But the secret’ seems so loud

If there’s a message, please relay it

Because I just can’t drown you out

 

It’s not that I’m not confident this time

It’s just the past has always been unkind

Oh can I really risk a friendship lost?

I guess I’m tired of living with the cost

 

We’re forced into decisions

But I don’t even have a voice

The cautious need precision now

While the selfish have no choice

 

It’s harder now to feel it

When I don’t know what I want

If there’s a message, don’t conceal it

Inside the silence it will flaunt

 

It’s not that I’m not confident this time

It’s just the past has always been unkind

Oh can I really risk a friendship lost?

I guess I’m tired of living with the cost

 

They all come back to find me here

Bound in thought to disappear

Tortured with my hopes and fears

 

Mirroring the past again

Mirroring the past again

 

It’s not that I’m not confident this time

It’s just the past has always been unkind

Oh can I really risk a friendship lost?

I guess I’m tired of living with the cost

I guess I’m tired of living with the cost

Take Them Back

 

Everyone wants someone else

It’s not that bad, it’s just as well

I’ve held on but now she’s gone

So I’ll go on like nothing’s wrong

 

All these things that slowly die

When life’s too short for suicide

It’s spent on those who can’t confide

Or on fractured hearts instead

 

Like a bullet to the head

Like a bullet to the head

 

Lost the game, no time was left

Words stayed still for secrets kept

With nothing much, no human touch

This hope was just a fucking crutch

 

It’s something I can’t figure out

They’ve all moved on with someone else

I’d write it down but I can’t spell

You can’t dwell on what you’ve read

 

Like a bullet to the head

Like a bullet to the head

 

If everything was meant to crack

I’d find the words and take them back

Right now it seems we’ve been attacked

And there’s no time to react

There’s no time to react

 

Love is like a ransom trick

It comes and goes to make you sick

Coming fast to make it quick

While everyone’s misled

 

Like a bullet to the head

Like a bullet to the head

 

Like a bullet to the head

I don’t know what she said

Feelings Change

 

Sunlight marked the last time

We’d be laying here like this

But it served as a reminder

For the things I’ll never miss

 

We might have had some good times

But it’s really not so bad

It’s not like I’m addicted

To the one thing I can’t have

 

You keep me safe and warm

So it’s really not so strange

 

You keep me safe and warm

And feelings change

She said feelings always change

Heartbroken

 

Remember a time when time stood still

Where our mock reality would remain unfilled

A hopeless time for nothing else

No reasoning rhymes or calls for help

 

In the fire, it came and went

Now I’m spent, I’m spent

 

Slipping off and out of focus

The words remain to stay unspoken

But I’m not myself, I’m just heartbroken

 

Remember a time where time was gold

Where I fit inside the prize fighter’s mould

There’s starvation now for something more

A lingering doubt that I can’t ignore

 

In the clouds, without a trace

Lost in space, in space

 

Slipping off and out of focus

The words remain to stay unspoken

But I’m not myself, I’m just heartbroken

 

Don’t you worry ’bout a single thing

I’ll surface soon and I’ll be breathing

Don’t you think to stop and stare

Another night and I’ll be there

Another night and I’ll be

 

Slipping off and out of focus

The words remain to stay unspoken

But I’m not myself, I’m just heartbroken

I’m not myself, I’m just heartbroken
