about

First single from Magatha Trysty's forthcoming 2014 sophomore release.

lyrics

Just like that you say we're done for
The sympathy you lack isn't equal to my lack of all direction
In this sentimental, weightless space
of bright souls and glass eyes
Young love, we've heard it all before
Young love, we've heard it all--

It was cloudy but not raining
You were tired but not sleeping well
and someone who said she loved you
made July a living hell
Shrugged off the teenage ennui,
just not sure how to replace it
You think that I don't have regrets?
You think I don't regret it?

But you'll never choose this
Scrape the rust off the raygun
No guts to use it
Blow the dust off the raygun
You lose your youth to self-abuse, it makes you run

Blame it all on TV movies
Whatever cold excuse you may find
I know you'll polish to perfection
Filled the tunnels of a diamond mine
with fashion magazines
and still you say you're suffering
And still you say you've suffered

But you'll never choose this
Scrape the rust off the raygun
No guts to use it
Blow the dust off the raygun
You lose your youth to self-abuse, it makes you run
You lose your youth to self-abuse, it makes you run

The hardest part of giving up is disappearing
The hardest part of giving up is disappearing
The hardest part of giving up is disappearing
(You'll never choose this, scrape the rust off the raygun)
The hardest part of giving up is disappearing
(No guts to use it, blow the dust off the raygun)
The hardest part of giving up is disappearing
(You'll never choose this, scrape the rust off the raygun)
The hardest part of giving up is disappearing
(No guts to use it, blow the dust off the raygun)

But you'll never choose this
Scrape the rust off the raygun
No guts to use it
Blow the dust off the raygun
You lose your youth to self-abuse, it makes you run
The hardest part of giving up is disappearing.
