lyrics

Wan tan smile
Too too tired
Free for life
For a while

Living and learning and
Tossing and turning and
Crashing and burning again
Falling awake when you
Grind and you ache and you’ll
Break if you make yourself bend
Daylight is painful like
Nightime is shameful and
Oh, when will you sleep again?
Nothing to do but be kind and be true
And be blind and be blue and be
Grateful that you’ll breathe again

Fife and drum
Sick so long
Severed thumb
Hate’s too strong

Living and learning and
Tossing and turning and
Crashing and burning again
Falling awake when you
Grind and you ache and you’ll
Break if you make yourself bend
Daylight is painful like
Nightime is shameful and
Oh, when will you sleep again?
You’re damned if you do...

Sometimes I think,
“You’ve got cars, and
I’ve got bones and skin,
Make it stop and
Make a run and
Maybe we’ll both win"

about

East Ghost Washington D.C., D.C.

Themes of distance, distortion, and a loss of connection with the people around us pervades much of their material; songs that reflect the feeling that we are surrounded yet separated, living a temporal, ghostly existence.
