about

A song about coping with the inevitable drifting apart of a group of close friends.

lyrics

We built an animal from scratch, we turned it into a monster.
Worked our hands to the white of the bone, and we set ourselves up for failure.

It's hard to think of what we made and see anything but losses.
For five years, we sat on top of the world. We just as quickly packed our boxes.

Please don't tell me I'm the only one who's lost. I want to hear you tell the truth and what it cost. Like a used up cigarette, I held in all this smoke for nothing.

I watched the ashes fall years ago. I saw the passion leave your face.
I watched the smiles go from real to forced to blank stares.
No more conviction, I can relate.

You can fix what's been broken. You can't bring back what you killed.
We all dug the hole, and we buried it together.
Then turned our backs and walked away, each by ourselves.

I held in all this smoke for nothing.
