last night lyrics – motion city soundtrack

“last night”

i’m still frustrated from last night
things happened in half-time, i’m sick of the bends
my panic research was no help
i sink into myself
afraid of the fall that never ends
i wait, but i’m too tired to play pretend
i’ll suffocate until the end

no time for halfhearted goodbyes,
i turn on the spotlight and flee from the scene
cheap flights from paris to bangkok, i thought it was nonstop
can’t sleep on the klm again
i haunt the halls of medicine at night
choking back the urge to fight

her cat was clawing the floorboards just outside of our door,
the panic begins
i searched the whole d*mn apartment from ceiling to carpet
no sign of the things she used to own
as autumn turns its back on me again
i climb the walls for oxygen

my body aches, it heaves, it shakes
all somersaults through so-called art
and i still don’t know exactly who i am
i never will, amen.

she whispers something in my ear, the message is unclear
she motions outside.
i trail her closely from behind
she tries hard not to cry
she shakes underneath the pouring rain

“i can’t compete with all your d*mn ideas
this isn’t working out for you or me
the truth is i’m too tired to play pretend
this is goodbye, this is the end.”
