lyrics

PHOTOCORROSION

I bought a box to fit my family inside,
a box of the proper pocket size
it was the perfect way to keep us all together,
a fine way to keep up with the times

I see myself inside a bigger box to buy
in a window to the world so wide
I need a way to stay connected to the tether,
I need a song to sleep tonight

take the weight of victory
take it upon yourself
today display prosperity, go
make it conspicuous

that’s how I found my wife, all faint and feeling faded,
so taken by the social life
she needs escape, I need to be contained, I crave it,
I’ll keep it on repeat tonight

take the weight of victory
take it upon yourself
today display prosperity, go
make it conspicuous

we pose like we’re frozen
no shutters are closing
we symbolize emotions
in photocorrosion
