Dirty Air 02:11
It’s been a strange couple of months With dirty air back in my lungs Chairs stacked on tables every night Before we finish that last pint And I’m comfortable stuck in this rut With every window painted shut And every door locked tight I’m staying in tonight I lie awake in an unmade bed Trying to make sense of my head Nowhere to go and it’s cold outside And it’s so convenient to hide And I’m comfortable stuck in this rut With every window painted shut And every door locked tight I’m staying in tonight

You said it was okay, that we slept right through the day ‘cos everything worth doing happens in the night time We had more cans that we could carry and no sense of direction We went towards the city, but lost our way And ran, ran, ran and I don’t know why, we were invincible that night We ran, ran, ran and I wish that I still felt invincible tonight But I can’t sleep without picturing my death And wondering how long I’ve got left I woke up by a fountain with no idea what I’d done I could’ve slept for hours if it wasn’t for the rising sun You were in a worse state, we were lost and hopeless We just sat there until we heard sirens on the horizon Then we ran, ran, ran and I don’t know why, we were invincible that night We ran, ran, ran and I wish that I still felt invincible tonight But I can’t sleep without picturing my death And wondering how long I’ve got left I can’t sleep without picturing my death And wondering how long I’ve got left Then a few years later we tried to sleep behind A fast food truck at the dead of night But we were a little older and I was kinda scared I couldn’t turn my mind off my body was unprepared For the cold winds that bothered me like they never had before The rain was lacerating, and I could run no more The world seemed so much darker and I could barely see I’d slowed to a crawl under eyes so heavy But I can’t sleep without picturing my death And wondering how long I’ve got left I can’t sleep without picturing my death And wondering how long I’ve got left

Sleeping bag on a fold out bed, Empty cans and an aching head. Fresh regrets and coping mechanisms That I tell myself are rational decisions And it’s alright as long as no one knows That I’m still wearing last night’s clothes I’m aware my perceptions are skewed When watching the sunrise does not affect my mood I’ll just stare out at a disappearing sky And when the light goes out, so do I And it’s alright as long as no one knows That I’m still wearing last night’s clothes And it’s alright as long as no one knows That I’m still wearing last night’s clothes
