3rd single off of the upcoming Turtles All the Way Down EP (coming out September 8th 2015)


You watch Sherlock & listen to Lana del Rey.
You sit back on the floor and watch these days & nights just fade away…
And maybe if there was one thing in this world you wanted, you might pray.
But nothing really matters anyway.

Oh, look what you’ve become —
Dead & dull & numb.
And oh, I know you never meant to end up this way:
Another pale cliché.

You like any boy who’s fool enough to say he likes you.
But you never take a chance on it & play around to see it through.
You say you’ll fall in love when you’re older and wiser, & a bit more okay…
But the timing’s just not quite right today.

Sounds like... Howard Hughes’ mind on a steamy summer night in 1936, electrified with champaign-soaked bubbles & all of his neurons synapsing endlessly between light & dark, Las Vegas & solitude, being the predator & being the prey.
