An indie pop anthem for the unappreciated.

Lyrics

 

Lately, I’ve been thinking
Why don’t you love me?
After all the sweating and bleeding
I’ve done for you?
Do you want to see my senses flake?
My vertebrae keep cracking 
From the weight of carrying both our names
Do you want to see me break down?
Come begging for your blessing?
Worship every word that you say?
By grace in-kind?
 
Because you’re closer now to me
Than I wanted
You’re closer now to me
Than I can change 
I don’t want to let you win 
I’ll get you inside of my head
And play the game of relationship
In public and private
Make moves like the weather
Darker with every turn
And we’ll resolve the winter when your heart, freezes 
Behind closed doors 
I feel you breathing
From across the hall
I know you’re steady working
Trying to keep yourself calm
To keep yourself from screaming
But your head starts to ache
And you’re wanting for the weekend
You can close your eyes 
And pretend you’re the queen of all the crones 
But when we get alone (You’re not so clever)
But I’ll still break down!
This game is so distressing
Rip me up and tear me to shreds
By force or mind
Because you’re closer now to me
Than I wanted
You’re closer now to me
Than I can change 
I don’t want to let you win 
I’ll get you inside of my head
And play the game of relationship
In public and private
Make moves like the weather
Darker with every turn
And we’ll resolve the winter when your heart, freezes 
You just want to see me break down
You just want to see me fall 
I’m off the wall, 
In pieces I will thaw.Lately, I’ve been thinking

Lately I've been thinking

Why don’t you love me?

After all the sweating and bleeding

I’ve done for you?

Do you want to see my senses flake?

My vertebrae keep cracking

From the weight of carrying both our names

 

Do you want to see me break down?

Come begging for your blessing?

Worship every word that you say?

By grace in-kind?

 

Because you’re closer now to me

Than I wanted

You’re closer now to me

Than I can change

I don’t want to let you win

I’ll get you inside of my head

And play the game of relationship

In public and private

Make moves like the weather

Darker with every turn

And we’ll resolve the winter when your heart, freezes

 

Behind closed doors

I feel you breathing

From across the hall

I know you’re steady working

Trying to keep yourself calm

To keep yourself from screaming

But your head starts to ache

And you’re wanting for the weekend

You can close your eyes

And pretend you’re the queen of all the crones

But when we get alone (You’re not so clever)

 

But I’ll still break down!

This game is so distressing

Rip me up and tear me to shreds

By force or mind

 

Because you’re closer now to me

Than I wanted

You’re closer now to me

Than I can change

I don’t want to let you win

I’ll get you inside of my head

And play the game of relationship

In public and private

Make moves like the weather

Darker with every turn

And we’ll resolve the winter when your heart, freezes 

 

You just want to see me break down

You just want to see me fall

 

I’m off the wall,

In pieces I will thaw.

The Filthy Slow was kind enough to work some remix magic on "Breakfast at the End", originally released on Goodbye Dominion in 2007. Dirt + Filth = Dance Fuel.
