about

Finding focus, my patience erodes.

lyrics

Last thing I remember
There was something I needed
But the glass on my fingertips
Shows a reminder for reading

My ears are still ringing
For no good recent reason
An echo of singing
From a past fruitful season

I
I remind myself it's only a season, for now
You
Yeah, you have no more excuses
You're so ruthless

It's been a minute since you've been in it
And longer since you've stayed
I know you said it, I'm still forgetting
The last time I loved what I made

You wouldn't know what to do
Even if you got it
Tail chaser, tail chaser

Few things more frightening
As much as a clean desk
Every pen poison, every line cuts
In my head, perfect
In my head, sucks

Fuck this, I'm not smart enough
And I know exactly who said that's the case
Fuck this, I'm not smart enough
And I know exactly who said that's the case

I
I don't want to be friends with my medicine cabinet
It feels like failing, feels like dying
You
And I know nothing changes
If you stop trying

It's been a minute since you've been in it
And even longer since you've stayed
I know you said it, I'm still forgetting
The last time I loved what I made

You wouldn't know what to do
Even if you got it
Tail chaser, tail chaser

I
I'm dying to believe
After everything, I'm still me
You
Hey, hey!

It's been a minute since you've been in it
And even longer since you've stayed
I know you said it, I'm still forgetting
The last time I loved what I made

It's been a minute since you've been in it
I know you said it, I'm still forgetting
I know you said it, I'm still forgetting
Well, hey, you know

You wouldn't know what to do
Even if you got it
