about

i measured lines out as they scratched the scrolls
stretched my fingers to the peaks and marked ten minutes for a week.

lyrics

the summer's over, can we breathe at last
we're giving up on sun, but one by one
we knew the days had to pass

we stared at images in black and white
in the picture was a shadow folded into the light
it's just an anxious abstraction

all i ever wanted
was the sound that i have in front of me
(waiting on the sun we waited out the summer)
now we're peeling off the wires
because all alarms have expired
(waiting on the sun we waited out the summer)
now all alarms are off
you're coming back home from the city

weekly visits led to weakened hopes
we could use another month to get off off the ropes
but this is all that we're getting

i measured lines out as they scratched the scrolls
stretched my fingers to the peaks
and marked ten minutes for a week
this was as long as you'd hold them
