1.
If I poured the gas and gave you a match You’d drop it just to start a fire Walk away to leave me watch it burn alone Are you pleased? Are you? I can smell everything surrounded by me being destroyed And a fire so bright, that has made me see through your lies The smoke sucked up all the oxygen And I couldn’t breathe Are you pleased? Are you? I can smell everything surrounded by me being destroyed And a fire so bright, that has made me see through your lies I will never ever be the same But next time I’ll be there to put out your flame
2.
I take these steps around the same circle Left with worn out soles and a sense of loss I shut the door, the voice in my head is internal It’s been 3 days and that’s another step I didn’t cross I’m safe, but I’m not stable It seems easier to avoid when enabled And if for one second, the light touched my skin I’ve built these walls that will keep me in I’m overwhelmed and spread myself thin What does it take to begin? I’m safe, but I’m not stable It seems easier to avoid when enabled I want to escape this world in my head Because I miss my friends I’m safe, but I’m not stable It seems easier to avoid when enabled
3.
Who knows how long it’s been But my name sticks to you like wet skin You see me as paper thin But I won’t let you in I’ve cleaned my slate So much for you to do the same My life, you can’t narrate You’re fueled with fire What is it that you long for? Such conflicting desires You’ve dismantled, but only to gain With bare hands to build again Who knows how long it’s been But my name sticks to you like wet skin

about

These three songs are the last Long Knives' songs that were written. They were played and recorded acoustically on these tracks. We will miss playing them live and hope you enjoy them in its raw and stripped-down form. We've set it up for "name your price." Give them a listen and download them for free. If you have any dollars to spare, we'd be so grateful. Stay safe and thank you all for supporting us for the past 6 years. <3

- Kris, Connor, and Robert
