Always grabbing your phone
Those pictures you take are just dust and ghosts
One day our children will see
And wonder how we got to be so old

But I could die any day
I feel like my brain has turned into stone
Maybe a couple more years
I’ve never seen it another way

I wanna freeze everything in its place
And try to maintain a pose
A single moment
To analyze and understand the meaning of
But everything just turns into a blur
And slowly returns back into the earth

It’s raining again
They’re closing the bar and the music quit
Well fuck it, I guess
A drink for the road, you can shut it down

I’m walking around in a trance
Just let me go on and on
I wanna believe
I’m more than just the sum of my memories
The wind is blowing garbage down the street
And I’m starting to feel like I’m losing steam

A single moment
To analyze and understand the meaning of
I wanna believe
I’m more than just the sum of my memories
But everything just turns into a blur
And slowly returns back into the earth

My whole life has turned into a blur
And I’ll slowly return back into the earth
