about

A track from the band's Lucasing EP.

lyrics

Maybe it's just a torture that I can't resist
Yesterday looked through our pictures
Perhaps I miss the pain that used to be so constant
Had to find something to remind me of it

I've looked down the barrel of a loaded gun
For so long I'm numb to it now

It only hurts when I think anymore
I'm not crying in my beer anymore
I don't kill myself to sleep anymore
It only hurts when I think

A year since I last had your lips pressed against mine
Yet I taste them when I close my eyes
A knife in my back that I have grown accustomed to
Just try hard not to think of you

I've walked on the edge of a bottomless cliff
For so long I'm used to it now

It only hurts when I think anymore
I'm not crying in my beer anymore
I don't kill myself to sleep anymore
It only hurts when I think

The Peabodys Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Punk rock should be fast, gritty, and straightforward, with hooks that stick like flypaper. Simple like all great ideas. The chords, the words, the melodies should feel like they've always been there, waiting for some average schlubs to snatch them out of the air.
