lyrics

Victims don’t need tickets
And maybe the only hope for us is gone
If we fill our hearts up at the Dairy Queen
And the empire tumbles like a tumble weed
At the red lights of 2nd and Honesty
I lied to her when I told her that our wounds would heal
And that one day our drinks would all have ice
But she knew that my mind was stuck on default
As I stumbled and fell upon the sidewalk
At the red lights of 2nd and Honesty
Some of my ostensible friends
Live good lives that are only theirs to lose
In late payments, and dark rendezvous
With hands upon the wheel at ten and two
At the red lights of 2nd and Honesty
In a window I catch my reflection
And wither in the clear-cut of my future
And in this moment I spend all the money
As the moon climbs up the high-rise into view
The girl beside me, she knows my secrets
And the girl beside me has her secrets too
At the red lights of 2nd and Honesty
Life comes to me in tiny little pieces
Like broken glass scattered on the road
I bleed the color of neon
And I fear the white teeth and the rumours
And the faulty wire in my heart
As the city grows around me
Without a plea to bargain
In the shadow of a prison
At the red lights of 2nd and Honesty
