lyrics

Woke up today, I woke up awake
Turns out the end of the world wasn't another fake
I've slept through an apocalypse or two in my time
But this one was for me, it wasn't for you
it's mine

Half a mile from Memphis, twice as far from piece of mind
branches fumble leaves in tired Tennessee sunshine
I'm mulling over last night's sin;
she stitched lion on my pillow
now I'm a mouse again

I was hailing a cab, she was hailing a cab
but all these neon lights make my girl look so drab
We got helium kisses, we can rise above
the Windy Pissers using their lips for love
for why?

Half a mile from Memphis, twice as far from piece of mind
branches fumble leaves in tired Tennessee sunshine
I'm mulling over last night's sin;
she stitched lion on my pillow
now I'm a mouse again

Detach yourself, drop your fuckin' phone
together we're all just together alone
I got your status right here in my hand
it says, "everything worth doing isn't planned."

Half a mile from Memphis, twice as far from piece of mind
branches fumble leaves in tired Tennessee sunshine
I'm mulling over last night's sin;
she stitched lion on my pillow
now I'm a mouse again
