    Seymore (Smile and a Bullet, 2015)

    Diligence and perfect grades, and calling home to waive the hate I keep seeing my life fly right by

    Waiting in the coffee line just to get my fix on time

    Crying in my head, I don’t know why


    I’m loving you with every breath I have in me Please say out loud, “it’s not enough,” I can be free


    My spitting image in every daughter;

    addict, emotional slaughter

    I can’t seem to find my method behind the mad Temporary role model trying

    Inside, outside, drowning and flying

    Someone feed me my last word

    ‘cause I need your strength to stop this hurt.


    Living by the moral flashing in the movie theater and

    I write and write and write to figure why

    Touch in keeping and repeating, time is fleeting and revealing I don’t know how to muster a reply


    I’m loving you with secrets kept deep inside me

    Just say out loud, “you give enough,” it’ll set my heart free


    CHORUS


    My spitting image in every daughter;

    addict, emotional slaughter

    I can’t seem to find my method behind the mad


    CHORUS
