lyrics

QUIET
CALM

ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS
FOR A STORM’S A BREWING
ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS
FOR A STORM SHE COMES

IF THEY SHOW YOU SOME PITY
THEN YOU’LL GET ON YOUR KNEES
FUCK THE ABUSE AND TORTURE
GRANT YOUR SOUL A DESERVED REPRIEVE
IF THEY SHOW YOU SOME TITTIES
THEN YOU’LL GIVE THEM SOME BEADS
FUCK THE MUSIC AND CULTURE
GET THE FUCK OUT OF NEW ORLEANS

THEY’RE ONE IN THE SAME
A FAILING RELATIONSHIP OR
AN ANNUAL HURRICANE

FOOL ME ONCE
SHAME ON YOU
FOOL ME TWICE
SHAME ON ME
FOOL ME THREE
THERE IS NO OPTION FOR
HOW POSSIBLY STUPID THAT CAN BE

I CAN’T KEEP ADJUSTING MY POSITION
JUST TO STAY IN THE EYE OF YOUR STORM
HARD TO NURSE A FEVERISH CONDITION WHEN YOUR TEMPERATURES ARE COLD AND WARM
AND ALTHOUGH MY JUXTAPOSITION
PAVED A ROAD INTO HELL INSTEAD
WE KEEP LIVING BELOW SEA LEVEL
ALWAYS IN OVER OUR HEADS

WINDS CHURNING
NEVER LEARNING
WARM AND COLD MIXING
AIR SPEEDS CONVERGING
ONLY DESTRUCTION TO BE
LEFT IN ITS WAKE

WHEN ALL YOU START ENDS IN FAILURE
MOVE FROM THE PARK MOVE FROM THE TRAILER
WHEN YOU FEEL STUCK
JUST A NUISANCE
TIME TO GET THE FUCK
RIGHT OUT OF TEXAS

OR LOSE YOURSELF
OR LOSE YOUR SOUL

SPENT SO MANY YEARS
CHASING THESE TWISTERS
WHEN I FINALLY FOUND ONE
NEVER COULD HAVE PREPARED
MYSELF TO BECOME ONE WITH
THE BROKEN WINDOWS
UPROOTED TREES
FLIPPED OVER CARS
DETACHED ROOFING

QUIET
CALM
