Twin size mattress lyrics Ciaran O’donnell / Mathew Uychich / Brian Sella / Tom Warren

This is for the lions living in the wiry broke down frames
Of my friends bodies
When the flood water comes, it ain’t gonna be clear
It’s gonna look like mud
But I will help you swim
I will help you swim
I’m gonna help you swim
This is for the snakes and the people they bite
For the friends I’ve made, for the sleepless nights
For the warning signs I’ve completely ignored
There’s an amount to take, reasons to take more
It’s no big surprise you turned out this way
When they close their eyes and prayed you would change
And they cut your hair, and sent you away
You stopped by my house the night you escaped
With tears in my eyes, I begged you to stay
You said, “Hey man, I love you, but no fucking way!”
I’m sure that we could find something for you to do on stage
Maybe shake a tambourine or when I sing, you sing harmonies
This is for the lake that me and my friends swim in
Naked and dumb on a drunken night
But it should’ve felt good, but I can hear the Jaws theme song
On repeat in the back of my mind
Make sure you kiss your knuckles before you punch me in the face
There are lessons to be learned
Consequences for all the stupid things I say
And it is no big surprise you turned out this way
The spark in your eyes, The look on your face
I will not be late
I’m sure that we could find something for you to do on stage
Maybe shake a tambourine or when I sing, you sing harmonies
I wanna contribute to the chaos
I don’t wanna watch and then complain
‘Cause I am through finding blame
That is the decision that I have made
She hopes I’m cursed forever to
Sleep on a twin-sized mattress
In somebody’s attic or basement my whole life
Never graduating up in size to add another
And my nightmares will have nightmares every night
Oh, every night, every night
Songwriters: Ciaran O’donnell / Mathew Uychich / Brian Sella / Tom Warren
