lyrics

Disarm my heart!

Honey, you’re my home.
But I’m imprisoned by my own neuroticism,
and I dread the day you’ll tire of my dismal charms.
I’m a crude, weathered sculpture vainly flapping
the cupid wings you planted on my back.
Yes, I’m made of want and want is made of stone.

I guess I’m still a mess, but I finally know
that love is not enough.
I’m a keen romance wrangler with no peace of mind to show,
‘cause love is not enough.

Remember our first tryst?
Our adverb-shaped bodies magnetized under star-peppered skies,
but we failed to surmise that in this world
even desired fates are star-crossed.
Satisfaction murders passion and passion constitutes the soul.

I guess I’m still a mess, but I finally know
that love is not enough.
I’m a keen romance wrangler with no peace of mind to show,
‘cause love is not enough.
But it’s all I’ve got!

This unquenchable lust
makes a minefield of my life.
I must disarm my heart!

Take this muscled sack of blood
and throw it in the river, ‘cause
it blinds me with its need and greed,
so I can’t be what I need to be:
a man with the world in the palm of his hand,
not some pathetic fragile mess.

So disarm my heart!

about

Square and Compass Houston, Texas

"This is a newer band made up of OG punk/hardcore kids from Texas. They put on a super energetic and interactive live show, thanks to their insane singer. Really fun to watch, and a great homage to the punk/DIY scene from ten years ago. They’re just getting started and already doing a bunch of rad stuff." - Sarah Saturday (Warped Tour Booking Agent) ... more
