Forever Boy


This song is called Forever Boy. Get it over at Pitchfork or just down below. It's about about a young boy, born in the gang, he runs from home, leaves his family and his arrogant father, follows his friends and joins another pack, feels his first moments of freedom, he's far from home, that sense of blur is leaving, he almost feels invincible now, will he ever shake off that edginess and anxiety?

Forever Boy

Oh Black market kind boy
having tough tough trial dreams
I can say it with assuring tones
I can shake it to forever grown

did you write a memo boy
that you're lost and have no (home)
say it out loud
did you spell it easily dear
when your dad begged on the (phone)
scream it out loud
fortunes will spread
better off dead than sold

Fiction's got not placing in this foreign land
Getting all eccentric got no other plan
Learning to commit more blood in other hands
Smaller new beggining more to come for sure

Lost around the middle
Cracked or snapped just brittle
I just come up for air
Lost around the middle

Round the quiver hall boy
Uppercase your handstands
do you know it's all up to you
can't you see it circling

did you write a memo boy
that you're lost and have no (home)
say it out loud
did you spell it easily dear
when your dad begged on the (phone)
scream it out loud
fortunes will spread
better off dead than sold

Fiction's got not placing in this foreign land Oh joy
Getting all eccentric got no other plan Oh joy
Learning to commit more blood in other hands Oh joy
Smaller new beggining more to come for sure Oh joy

Wish me well, wish me well, wish me well
