‘the taste of ink’ by the used

Is it worth the can you even hear me
Standing with your spotlight on me
Not enough to feed the hungry
I’m tired and I felt it for awhile now
In this sea of lonely
The taste of ink is getting old
It’s four o’ clock in the fucking morning
Each day gets more and more like the last day
Still I can see it coming
While I’m standing in the river drowning
This could be my chance to break out
This could be my chance to say goodbye
At last it’s finally over
Couldn’t take this town much longer
Being half dead wasn’t what I planned to be
Now I’m ready to be free

So here I am it’s in my hands
And I’ll savor every moment of this
So here I am alive at last
And I’ll savor every moment of this

Won’t you think I’m pretty
When I’m standing top the bright lit city
And I’ll take your hand and pick you up
And keep you there so you can see it
As long as you’re alive and care
I promise I will take you there
We’ll drink and dance the night away
We’ll drink and dance the night away

So here I am it’s in my hands
And I’ll savor every moment of this
So here I am alive at last
And I’ll savor every moment of this
Savor every moment of this

As long as you’re alive here I am..

As long as you’re alive
Here I am
I promise I will take you there

    I love the mystery and stories told in this piece… I can see why the lyrics speak to you.

  • thanks bro, i appreciate that
    these lyrics i feel are so universal, but because of the style of music it is a lot of people might never listen to it
    theres nothing better then screaming them at a live show

    So much more than street abstract… even approaching a modern day Picasso goes macabre or a Gacy touch of the disturbing! Vibrant colors here… one heck of a vision!

    i feel like getting a few cans too and going crazy :) thanks for your comment and fav
