about

Channeling mid-90s everything.

lyrics

Hey, sugartooth, we both know it’s time
We both know that I’m coming unglued and you’re getting diffuse
Hey, sugartooth, ain’t you tired of pain?
The pinpricks and the stains of stale afternoons and creeping disuse

I choose to see it as it was, you know
I choose to hold it precious
Some perfect moment caught in yellowed Kodachrome, you know
When we were pretty

There’s a last for everything, you know
Can’t skirt the edge forever
You’ve been flirting with oblivion, you know
And I get jealous. Well, I know a place

Hey, sugartooth, we both know it’s time
We both know that I’m coming unglued and you’re getting diffuse

Those times are all behind us now, you know
These bones are crumbling from the weight of standing
This might’ve gone a different way, you know
But that was so long ago

You tried to be an alchemist, cheating death
With some silver-tank elixir
When we’ve kissed our last and drawn another borrowed breath
You know there’s nothing left

Hey, sugartooth, we both know it’s time
We both know that I’m coming unglued and you’re getting diffuse
Hey, sugartooth, don’t leave me behind
Whatever we may find, whatever happens next, it happens to me too
Hey, sugartooth
