lyrics

Eloping for snow
With the windows down on Calle Ocho
Bright light and white stripes
Trying to resuscitate memories gone cold

We died as clan
Diazepam
Blacked out, driving alone

Highway lines fade
They fade like ambitions

If I could stay grounded
Pleasantly surrounded
By the ghosts of illicit chemistry

If I could stay in bed
Lying listlessly
Cloaked by shame and misery

Collins and Ocean
I’m toasted
Screaming Hall and Oates
With my best friend talking promotions

Come on Miami
One more time

Northbound
Wishing to purge myself of this 4-wheel purgatory
Shotgun with John Barleycorn
Chewing handfuls of doctors candycorn

That sweet candy drip
Nomad, no map trip
Screaming this is my final retreat
Passing through the Carolinas bitterly
Mile markers Etch a Sketch a human tragedy

They’ve always said, that I’ve been
M.I.A.
This is the last waltz
They say I left, but I’ve always been M.I.A.

If I could just stay grounded
Pleasantly surrounded
By the friends I took for granted
Instead
Found a job, a bed and a bar stool
Found a doctor, addiction, and solitude

Collins and Ocean
I’m toasted
Screaming Hall and Oates
With my best friend talking promotions

C’mon Miami
One last time
