Not Having Done Nothing

“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.”
― Jack Kerouac

The new song:

So last night we wrapped up in the studio and we had a discussion about what this last song on the E.P. was about. Basically we decided that it was well about killing a bitch. Its fun to think about a songs meaning I just think this one is particularly awesome.

you guys wont be able to listen to this for a while and I took down the old video because I am a sneaky fuck.

Here are the lyrics:

Alchemy for Beginners

I’ve got this brain
riddled with confidence
not in myself
but that fact that we can’t exist
anywhere other than here
forget me not love
forgive me god willing
cover your eyes
these tears aren’t appealing
to anyone other than her
anyone other than her

I fear I am,
The last romantic man
To stand on the sun
burning alive for the one that i love

from where I am…
I can see how beautiful its been

Can you blame me for hating your guts
I still hear the sound of your voice
whenever I shut my eyes
whenever I sleep at night
They claim there’s no rest for the wicked
my hands are shaking while your eyes are empty and cold
My sleeping ghost

I fear I am,
The last romantic man
To stand on the sun
burning alive for the one that i love
and I will watch,
The world down bellow
spinning as slowly it rots
revolving, dissolving, believing its not

from where I am…
I see how beautiful its been


My question is.. what do you think its about?
