lyrics

a big ball of light
sticks my bare feet to the ground
so i am skipping side to side and they fry
my skin turns brown
i love my loneliness
it keeps me on the ball
and from your lack of perspective
away from it all

but you don’t dance to your
rock ‘n’ roll anymore
and i don’t say sorry like i mean it
cause i’m mean and i’m immature
and i’m not tired of this one down
one to go

the best things in life are:

1 word - 10 meanings -
2 words - 1 feeling of - ‘no boots’ -
swimming down stream -
your big bones above my
8.35 skimming stones -
watch me run and jump these 3 floors
on these here all 4’s -
this here 4th wall hears all like -
“let me get my joints to slip into these tight fits
you’ve got loose screws -
i love you too”

a big ball of light
sticks my bare feet to the ground
so i am skipping side to side and they fry
my skin turns brown
i love my loneliness
it keeps me on the ball
and from your lack of perspective
away from it all

but you don’t dance to your
rock ‘n’ roll anymore
and i don’t say sorry like i mean it
cause i’m mean and i’m insecure
but i’m not tired of this one down
one to go

1 word - 10 meanings -
2 words - 1 feeling of - ‘no boots’ -
swimming down stream -
your big bones above my
8.35 skimming stones -
watch me run and jump these -
3 floors on these here all 4’s -
this here 4th wall hears all -
like -
“watch me get my joints to slip into these tight fits
you’ve got loose screws -
i love you too”

“screws loose got you’ve -
fits tight these into slip to joints my get me watch”
like -
all hears wall 4th here this -
4’s all here these on floors 3 -
these jump and run me’s
watch stones skimming
above big bones swimming
feeling like uh oh
10 words - 1 meaning-
2 words - 1 you!
i love you too
i love you too
232
i love you
