The Rude Reach EP

1.
So long to the words we knew Accidents are all we have And the sound's so loud But you couldn't call it out And the difference is down to patronage But on the phone they were talking you down A conversation called "couldn't have you around" To take your time You're primitive, and I'm past my prime Say goodbye to the facts we thought we knew And the figures we found In the margins Of the pictures that we drew The picture is about patronage But on the phone they were talking you down A conversation called "couldn't have you around" To take your time You're primitive, I'm patient I paced it like so You're red and you're rote I come and I go, cold comfort I'm someone you know You're caught in your coat With nowhere to go No answers You're sallow
2.
Sold! Seven miles and sixteen ways From symptom to sympathy A story high A strut and sigh Succession and symmetry Take it off Aloft, a loft, I lost it To cold cartography Past callow calls The watchstring halls And the home that's home to me
3.
Break your vows Come out, come out Correct and come unbound Calling over The back of your head And half of your bed And all of your cool and your clout You left our leaders in doubt We couldn't keep you out Get your rest and get your friends Collected and corralled Bawling over The books that you read And what wasn't said And what you were thinking aloud You're cutting me out Protect what makes you proud Developed and devout A face out of the crowd And it's something to talk about We couldn't keep it down So take your bows Get out, get out Courageous to your crowd Calling out for The back of your head And half of your bed And all of your dread and your doubt Let's just pretend we figured it out
4.
So you want to know why I crawled away And covered my traces for you You couldn't call what I kept away But oh, you know, it's not all for show It's not right and it's not what you know The lines you stole left the academy cold Keep it down and call when you can't sleep Take it out, it's something you can keep I'm calling it out, one sickening surprise You couldn't direct it, you reckless child I stumbled across the same crooked mile So go, get up Rested and restless, oh Get dressed and go back to your home A harrowed start to your Saturday Sleepy and sad to go But oh, you know, it can't always be just so You're so sad but you're not so alone It gets so old, I'm callous and cold Keep it down and call when you can't sleep Take it out, it's something you can keep I'm calling it out, one sickening surprise You wanted to wreck it in record time I followed you down the same crooked line Don't - that's a gutless way to go Empty gut and aching bones There's a spark inside my throat There's a language that we wrote
