lyrics

"X-Rays"

I'm hemorrhaging funds, I'm losing patience and control
and the devil hates getting low-balled, so I can't get shit for my soul.
And I can't afford to keep us warm, so we'll freeze all winter long.
These masterpieces burn faster and shittier than logs.

I'm gonna be nervous soon,
the caterpillars in my stomach are spinning their cocoons.

When we get the X-rays back we'll see
if you're ever setting foot back in the ring.
That's the bell, go back to the corner you painted yourself into.

I never had the rush of endorphins that I needed to pick myself up from the bottom,
but I should get a Nike endorsement for how quickly I can run away from my problems.
Now I can't dust my shoes off to go for a jog,
they've been up on the shelf since you dipped them in bronze.
They used to be my getaway, but these days they're more for display.

I dress in cliches to the nines.
I sleep in belfries, I've been so blind.
And I'd love to say, "I'll wipe that smile off your face,"
but my threats are as empty as my trophy case.

When we get the X-rays back you'll see
you'll have to cut me cause I'm still not listening.
I didn't hear a bell so I'll keep cutting corners like I always do.

about

Moonraker Santa Clarita, California

Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you? Moonraker is a punk band from southern California ... more
