lyrics

crickets like distant fire alarms at night
flies nosedive suicide into my open eyes

a simile's a science, baby
but a metaphor's just life

i’m an undergrad in love on adderall
in the fashions of the fall
i’m a dancer of apartments
dancing with a shadow on my wall

i’m not sure i can shake it, baby
the weight of what’s unknown

that feeling time's repeating
that underglow
that sense of moving fast
and still too much too slow

they’re never gonna come back, are they?
those stretchings of the bone?

i’m a lonely little ballet baby
whose teacher doesn’t know
that the cleverest of algorithms
will one day tie me to my phone

we never had a chance now, did we (? no, / know?)
there’s much too much to know
and the cleverest of algorithms
feed off that feeling i’m alone

they’re never gonna love me, are they?
those people i don’t know?

i’m an undergrad
in love
on adderall
in the fashions
of a fall
wipe the cum
from my stomach
i’m watching
your shadow
on my wall

these memories
shared
with one
and all
these pictures
from nights
i can’t
recall
i don’t know
my body
anymore
only our
shadows
on my
wall
only
my
shadow
on
the
wall
