Lyrics

This Love Is Sarcastic

by Jakob Leventhal


Verse

Under millions of miles

Of blind snakes and profiles

This love is dead yet still breathing

While I sit in the bathroom dry heaving


Last night's terrible decisions

Stand with the sun’s inhibitions

A heart broken method rage

Willed by whisky and a coming of age


Pre-Chorus

Oh, this love is suffocating in the smoke

It may be done for good

But I don’t know

Chorus

And while this love may be sarcastic

At least it’s folk

At least it’s folk

Nobody has to know

Nobody has to know

Verse

My youth has turned me angry

My anger’s made me weird

I enjoy the fakings and the take me’s

The worlds romance is all but seared

The age of digital goodnights

Sent from everyone’s porn device

My emotions are rather concise

It’s nothing new and nothing nice

Pre-Chorus

Oh, this love is suffocating in the smoke

It may be done for good

But I don’t know


Chorus

And while this love may be sarcastic

At least it’s folk

At least it’s folk

Nobody has to know

God, Nobody has to know

Solo

Chorus

And while this love may be sarcastic

At least it’s folk

At least it’s folk

Nobody has to know

God, Nobody has to know


Neckties and Suicides

by Jakob Leventhal

Verse

You walk along the hall

Staring at each wall

Wishing you were already dead


Hold up honey

Take your time

Walk along the lakeside

And steer clear of a necktie suicide

Chorus

A rain drops a heavy thing

When it’s crashing on your skull

A smiles quite a terrible sting

When your heart is barely whole

The city’s quite a lonely mess

When your mind is in a lull


Verse

I’m a poet who cannot speak

I can barely read

So maybe this time you take the lead

Hold up honey

Take your time

Smoke one and find some peace

With the person that you hate the least


Chorus

A rain drops a heavy thing

When it’s crashing on your skull

A smiles quite a terrible sting

When your heart is barely whole

The city’s quite a lonely mess

When your mind is in a lull

Solo

Chorus

A rain drops a heavy thing

When it’s crashing on your skull

A smiles quite a terrible sting

When your heart is barely whole

The city’s quite a lonely mess

When your mind is in a lull


Outro

So now I’ve, gotta plead

You take the lead

You take the lead

You take the lead
