Virtues 03:40
Kindness Patience Read it on your forehead Kindness Patience Read it on the ceiling Cool wind blowing Goes straight to my head Right hand holding Left hand wants you dead I want it Time worn tells the truth I bought it Rain fell on your roof So sit down Listen to worn trees I’m worthless Wounded shaking knees I want it Time worn tells the truth I bought it Rain fell on your roof And you have to salt the wound

Tattooed life I could swear your honor I watched him die Fragile eyes Showed me you were trying For an ideal life But you could not hold time What you wanted Time took from you Writhing body Eyes turned toward the sky

Garrett: It starts with a spark, a flicker, a flash, and quickly erupts into flames. I wish we could have been together to see how bright the sky would become. Then you could feel my joy as I watch the light pour from your eyes. I will meet you in the field. I will face you in the field. Lonely, distraught, locked deep in thought. Why would we hide so much of ourselves? Searching for life in the back of our minds. I hope we don't find traces of our lies to remind us of how important it was. Searching for life in the back of our minds Jim: Shield your eyes Can’t move forward All your life Held your breath through your sighs I could see your house burn Brightly It helped to light my way home I’m sorry My God the sun’s become The taker Moon become my reaper Destroy all I will meet you in the field I will face you in the field Feed the cutter Fields of clutter My sight is busted Maladjusted Searching for life in the back of our minds

Jim: The tension Lost form seeking its shape Digression Treading water until it’s too late Suspension Arms are breaking under the weight Garrett: Saturating me until I'm buried up to my ears. I can't afford not to hear. I saw your life, wound up so tight. Is it safe to say that you'll always stay at your house? At your house At your house At your house.

Jim: Told your tale I heard that you were suffering I did not listen Sun on my back The city worn Blood  on my back The city sighs Garrett: Told your tale, so stop waiving your arms. I know you're tired and scared of the dark but the night is rolling in and we've been sitting still for far too long. You thought it was alright to set off on course with no direction from stars. Don't you see where we are? This time I think I've lost my mind. I visioned us alive not just a waste of time. The sun had sucked you dry and when the waves crashed in to dissolve your soul all they found was a hole. I thought you were alright but you wore it out.

Jim: Synapse broken A lighthouse in water Words they stutter Face the other Have to sit here and watch you tie your shoe Have to sit here watch you sing your blues Calm wind Take me to your room Circumstance Face the bitter soon No remorse Show me all of your gloom Quietly Take me to your room You’re the creepiest in this light Garrett: I've experienced this all before in different lights, different times, with different outcomes. I know all the possibilities but I can't for the life of me remember which ones we're smiling. A hundred and twenty three tiles on the ceiling or at least that's as far as you'll ever let me get. Do I have to sit here and watch you tie your shoes? Okay, you have my attention. Do I have to sit here and hear you sing your blues? You'll reach up to draw back your blinds. Let the street lights shine in and watch our silhouettes dance on the walls. You're creepiest in this light when your face doesn't match your shadow. You're creepiest in this light when your face doesn't match your shadow. You're creepiest in this light.
