lyrics

Hey darling, would you settle for apricot?
My family burned away on baby blue too soon
Hail to the chief that's impaled and bleeding, burned the pieces, haloed
My family burned away on baby blue

And your stupid boyfriend too, I'll follow you around where you want
And I can be grateful for your absence, and still cling to your atmosphere
And your selfish girlfriend too, I'll follow you around where you want

Break honest, every line hid something else
Open letters never leave it so vague one can't know
Make something, meet someone, read a damn book, and read it again
My agenda burns away on every thought

Candid excess is nauseating and insecure
Bad people and awful TV can't give up too soon
Learn to sleep less, deny your recess
At first you didn't care, but know you know
My family burned away on baby blue

I'm gonna stop you there, push your hair to the right one second
Put all your glasses down, and throw your head at the wall if you need to

And your stupid boyfriend too, I'll follow you around where you want
And I can be gracious for your absence, and still pine for your atmosphere
And your selfish girlfriend too, I'll follow you around where you want
