lyrics

Get in, the tank is full.
Drive out to empty spaces.
Turn off the cruise control.
Turn on your favorite station.

We kiss with both eyes closed,
and we kiss with third eyes opened.
And as our lips seek repose–
Spoken language of bodies broken.

I remember when I lost my mind in the moment I was losing myself and you,
You were oh so ready to let go.
And I can't recall those nights without feeling that I'll never relive them too,
but sometimes it's better not to know.

So pull off the dusty road,
pull up the parking brake,
turn off the radio,
turn on your best mistake.

I remember when I lost my mind in the moment I was losing myself and you,
You were oh so ready to let go.
And I can't recall those nights without feeling that I'll never relive them too,
(in that wintry wallowing with neither saying that we knew what we had to do)
sometimes it's better not to know.

You're just a let down,
set down all that you cost and get out,
out of my head now without knowing you lost all you found.
Know that you let down.
