about

I have what could arguably be considered a bad habit, and that bad habit is to write lyrics that are intended to be positive and encouraging when listened to as a whole, but when taken out of context are intensely depressing

for example,

lyrics

spiderwebs on the walls
of a cathedral starting to fall
broken down concert halls
and there's nothing we can do

they were beautiful when you made them
but as time goes by, you leave them all behind

try so hard to forget
you grow up, you grow apart
you were king of the hill
'til you were shot through the heart

it's over; leave it behind you now

we are not what we have,
but the things we give away
we are not what we know,
but the things that we let go

they were beautiful when you made them
but everything will fall apart with time
they were beautiful when you made them
but you're holding yourself down
by holding on

they were beautiful
but you're holding yourself down
can't stop the world from turning
can't stop the world from turning 'round
