lyrics

Disneyland

Get me a pen and a clipboard and some graph paper
Let’s make a list of things we tend to forget
You can thank us later
Before i dress in distraction
Before you dress in a pretty phrase
I need to remember what’s important
Before the billboard swallows my face

I think we can all agree that we need remedies
For diseases separating our hearts from our brains
You know you might be the answer to my wishes and some more
What if what i wish is not what i want but what they told me to wish for?

How should i know the answers to what ifs and the maybies
We can’t let the pressure to pin this down bring us to our knees
Now we can go for the good story or the safe option
I want the intersection of Disneyland and self destruction

I think we could be compatible if it’s temporary
I think if we’re reasonable enough to keep it all together
We will know that absolutely nothing lasts forever
But if we’re smart enough we could be pretty fucking happy

Don’t underestimate sisterhoods
Don’t underrate blood brothers
We need families with no connections to our forefathers
We need to talk until our heads hurt to understand
It’s okay if i take all of you if they tell me just to take your hand

It’s okay if we crash when we fall
To grab life by the balls
Because it’s our minds that need a change
Not our legs and chests and hip bones
I think you should be on my team
I think you know what I mean
If you want a fraction of this Forever
You can have it with me

I think we could be compatible if it’s temporary
I think if we’re reasonable enough to keep it all together
We will know that absolutely nothing lasts forever
But if we’re smart enough we could be pretty fucking happy
