• Oh, yes it is.

31st July 2009

Oh, yes it is.

Every time I hear the song “No, It Isn’t” by +44 I know I made the right decision.  All three manipulative, controlling and selfish scumbags that I have kicked out of my life in the last few years are the reason this song hits me in the chest.  I could write a paragraph on why every line describes exactly how I’ve felt.  Except in our cases “foreign dressing rooms” are my bedroom, a cheap motel room, and a sidewalk in downtown Phoenix, respectively.

Lucky for me, that sound you make that feels like pain?  I don’t have to put up with it any more.

Please understand
This isn’t just goodbye
This is I can’t stand you
This is where the road crashed into the ocean
It rises all around me
And now we’re barely breathing
A thousand faces we’ll choose to ignore

Curse my enemies forever
Let’s slit our wrists and burn down something beautiful
This desperation leaves me overjoyed
With fading lights that lead us past the lives that we destroy

I listen to you cry
A cry for less attention
But both my hands are tied
And I’m pushed into the deep end
I listen to you talk but talk is cheap
And my mouth is filled with blood
From trying not to speak
So search for an excuse
And someone to believe you
In foreign dressing rooms
I’m empty with the need to

Curse my enemies forever
Let’s slit our wrists and burn down something beautiful
This desperation leaves me overjoyed
With fading lights that lead us past the lives that we destroy

Curse my enemies forever
Let’s slit our wrists and burn down something beautiful
This desperation is leaving me overjoyed
With fading lights that lead us past the lives that we destroy

Please understand

Lay rotting where I fall
I’m dead from bad intentions
Suffocated and embalmed
And now all our dreams are cashed in
You swore you wouldn’t lose then lost your brain
You make a sound that feels like pain

So please understand
This isn’t just goodbye
This is I can’t stand you
