lyrics

You could always die another day
Pick a poison or fall fearless on a blade
For the honor, some ancient concept of a father
More likely never bother, too focused on the fraudulence of summer
Some secret you’re the only one who found
Never considered it’s the other way around

This is the end
This the only new beginning we have left
This is just to say
I never really understood redemption anyway

Hold tight till it breaks
Until the blood swells in your fingers
Until the static dissipates
Hold tight till it breaks

You could even last another year
Taking bets on when your friends all disappear
Play the odds, help them along

It's one thing here at the bottom of the city
On the top floor sitting where the walls start spinning
And another entirely everywhere else
Where everyone’s been taking care of themselves

This is the end
This the only new beginning we have left
This is just to say
I never really meant that “better off” trash anyway

So this is it?
I studied symmetry for centuries for this?
So this is mine?
I untethered each and every tie to the treadmill of time
If it is done then I am safe
I am a swan dive in a lake
I am a perfect summer’s day

Hold tight till it breaks
Hold tight till it breaks
Hold tight till it breaks

This is the end
A mess of circumstance and ever ebbing interest
And this is how it starts
A spark, then smoke as the symphonic sulking falls apart
