Recorded in Boston @ The Record Co. August 2016 and May 2017
Mixed by Nick Davison


I never ask you how you feel
Cus I don't want that side of you to be awakened
Take your weekly alcohol and pills
And all my plans will go according to the schedule
Melatonin one every night
You've got to keep your mind from going into circles
You feel alive and function well
Soon you'll be turning into intimate machinery

You've met me before
You've met me before
I'm a pendulum dangling back and forth

Don't get down about what's in your head
You've got so many things outside to make you stable
You'll be our favorite son till you're dead
And you can kill your flaws
If you believe your able
A quiet voice says soft in your ear
Sometimes I feel like I am 1 in 7 billion
But we don't have no time for that here
Unless you never want to be a good civilian

You've been here before
You've been here before
When you get to the barricade there's no door

Now you ask me who I am
Well my dear friend I think you already know the answer
I am the part of you that lives at the end
Decided long ago you'd never be a dancer

You've met me before
You've met me before
I'm a pendulum dangling back and forth
