about

Track 4 from The Palace Ballroom's self-titled sophomore release.

lyrics

Crawl away you're getting out from underneath the building doubt that complicates our time
Crawl away from everything that keeps you choking on the dreams of some better life
You're getting farther back and farther back you're waiting for me to attack you. I have no designs.
Farther Back and farther back until we're nothing but a speck inside our minds

So keep it safe until I'm gone
The memories will all give way
To another life when summer comes
As the other life disintegrates
And it goes on and on and on
So much for penitence

Like a pin thrown off a cliff you don't plummet but gently drift descending with a glide
And all around you feel the grip of currents like some steady wrists pushing from behind
Farther back and farther back and looking up from where you're at
It seems like such a climb
And all the days you tried to save yourself from ending up this way are now just wasted time.

So keep it safe until I'm gone
The memories will all give way
To another life when summer comes
As the other life disintegrates
Can you believe in something still?
Can I repair what's been undone?
As I live and breathe you know I will
But it all depends when summer comes
And it goes on and on and on and on
So much for penitence
