Just Won't Stop

about

Recorded winter of 2017/2018.

lyrics

At thirteen, you loved to fight.
You never got bored.
One-on-one against your miseries,
shedding blood,
across the pages on the floor.

And it just won't stop.
Yeah, it crushes you long after your heart -
long after your heart rate drops.
Probably die alone,
watched by photos 'round the room,
getting pummeled to irrelevance.
Oh well,
but it just won't stop.

When the autumn came, it came down so hard,
but you were too worn out to care.
Your teenage years were probably cute,
hard eyes and steel-toed boots
that didn't get you anywhere.

And now it just won't stop.
Yeah, it crushes you long after your heart -
long after your heart rate drops.
Probably die alone,
watched by photos 'round the room,
getting pummeled to irrelevance.

You left yourself down for the count
while the world got hollowed out.
November came for your hometown.
Now you're old and dumb,
and it just won't stop.

Probably die alone,
watched by photos 'round the room,
getting pummeled to irrelevance.
