lyrics

REGRETS ARE TRANSIENT
FORGET YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS
(These are just regrets stuck inside my head)

I can only think of you
Regrets are transient
Forget your accomplishments

I am our lack of a discerning future
And I'll watch the tears start slowly in the sutures
Darling, our hands don't fit in each others
Or the gloves given to us by our mothers
I want to make my parents proud by singing loud
But they'd kill me if they knew that I get higher than clouds
I lie in bed all day though I don't need the rest
I disappoint myself and fail every test

I can't deny there was lust in my eyes at night
I don't recognise the stranger I leave behind

If I met myself but from the past
I'd kick my fucking ass
Because I'm not the man I thought I'd grow up to be
(And you don't wanna be me)
For see it's one thing to break promises to mothers and to lovers
But breaking promises with yourself is worse than any other

Maybe someday my words will be golden
But as it stands I'm barely scraping bronze
But as it stands I'm last but not the worst

I sit on a throne of lies
I've got skeletons in my eyes

WHEN I WAS YOUNG I WAS SO NAIVE
I DIDN'T CARE FOR THE PAST OR MY OWN HEARTBEAT
IN MY DEFENCE, I WAS BORN WITH COMMON SENSE
