Sister City - Adm Gives Up The Dream lyrics

I sat along the sand and rocks
Like a thousand contemplative songs
Anyone who knows me knows I spent the night inside
The wind was radiator hum
The sand was dust
The setting sun was the ever dimming laptop light as the battery died
Welcome to the future
Welcome to the new year
Where if that's a poignant image, then I don't want to write

I slept through the scenery
If there ever was a view
And drowned it out with dreams about what it looks like in truth
Cause we like to think we've conquered
That we've overcome the odds
But we're only as accomplished as the least inviting arms
If I make a record
If I hold myself to standards
If I stick to a song or I work for too long I'm just turning myself in

I know where I come from
And I know what I have done
I know where I come from

And I know what I have done
And I know what isn't realistic
But if the seeds I sow don't grow that's self-fulfilling
And I don't buy that anymore so
I skip between suburban homes
And the sort of comfort I've always known
That I resent but represents an actual goal
Maybe I don't want to finish anything
Maybe all the big work's done and carted off
And all I'm left with is small talk

I know where I come from
And I know what I have done
I know where I come from

And I know what I have done
And I know what I wouldn't rather do
I meant what I said, but I sounded so damn desperate that it didn't sound true

I sat along the sand and rocks
Like a thousand contemplative songs
I sat along the sand and rocks
Like a thousand contemplative songs

I sat along the sand and rocks
Like a thousand contemplative songs
Anyone who knows me knows I spent the night inside
