lyrics

PALINDROME

typical of you to feel it right in your bones

we never collide in a space of our own

can't you recognize that your life is a palindrome?
pulling at your teeth as your sister insists
she's never gonna change with a heart like a fist
but it's easy to arrange when fate is a fatalist

CH
where do we belong?
& where did we go wrong?
each time that we were drawn
on & on & on & onward oh...

a summertime alone shouldn't be this hard
drab as a fool, aloof as a bard
proud in the rain & sensitive as a scar
& all my former
loves would warn her
the end will be as difficult as the start

[CH]

BR.
in your wounded pride your failure to hide
how you react i'll come right back
you can brace yourself against every consequence
& when they fall your back against a wall & all
your subtle evidence defeats your own defense
& each exception to yourself oh it only seems to help
erase the lines that you have drawn
on & on & on & onward...

typical of you to feel it right in your bones
we'll never collide in a space of our own
can't you recognize that your life is a palindrome?
