There's nothing left to say.
We said it all before.
It's everything we said,
That's led to this.

There's nothing left to do,
We've done it all to death.
It's time we closed its eyes,
and laid our love to rest.

It cuts like I'm being carved up from the inside.
It aches like my hollowed-out gut's been packed with ice.

And that's just half
the weight of your sigh.
That's why I pray they aim straight,
and I smile at the firing line.

Was it worth the cost?
The never ending fight?
Are you any better off, love,
now that you've proved you right?

Light my last cigarette,
My hands are tied,
brush your lips across my cheek,
and pull the blindfold tight.

...flows from one beautiful, unsettling melody to the next, sometimes contemplative, at others softly abrasive. American Music Club, Pavement, Miracle Legion and Yo La Tengo come to mind.
