about

I got in an argument with a 20 year old kid and he couldn't stop staring at his cell phone the whole time. it was like a baby with a pacifier. this little hand held device was his emotional interface with the world when the shit got heavy.

lyrics

i dont know how to talk anymore
i keep my doors shut
i keep my mouth shut
i’ need to be hide behind something
feel the blue lights glow and flicker across the screen

be brave
talk a walk downtown
check reflection
mirrored window
find out whats for sale
avoid all eye contact with persons unknown

fill my lungs with muddy waters
coughing up borrowed refrains
i’m afraid of conversation
i’ll text you and try to explain
I’m afraid to know you
I’m afraid you might want to know me too!

access random memory bank overflow
we’re like checked luggage
we’re like lost baggage
or abandoned shopping carts
dream the distance between us humans disappear
dream the distance between us humans disappear

fill my lungs with muddy waters
coughing up borrowed refrains
i’m afraid of conversation
i’ll text you and try to explain
I’m afraid to know you
I’m afraid you might want to know me too!
