Florida - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
Lyrics:

Although we'd often wondered,
It was no thing of wonder
The shit that flew from our minds

While wearing stains of fresh fruit
And riding on shoes of horse glue
On this ridiculous climb

With great tunnel vision
We'd build ourselves a mission,
To ride on bullets inside

Oh what a vain description
Of what we had been missing,
So why would anyone try?

It was always worth it
That's that part I seem to hide,
And the busy ant empire
Put up the closing sign

I wasn't always cargo
I was once kind of my own,
I guess I'll pack up my mind

Well it took so much effort
Not to make an effort
Oh what a flawless design

It was always worth it
That's the part I seem to hide,
And the busy ant empire
Put up the closing sign

Evan as I had left Florida

It was always worth it
That's the part I seem to hide,
And the busy ant empire
Had all deserted hive

It was always worth it
That's the part I seem to hide

Evan as I had left Florida,
Far enough, far enough
Wasn't far enough
Couldn't quite seem to escape myself
Far enough, far enough,
Far from Florida
We were all drowsing in cruise control
Far enough, far enough
Wasn't far enough

I stood on my heart's porch thinking,
"Oh my god I probably have to carry this whole load"
I couldn't remember if I tried
I couldn't remember if I took my brain out
Through it so directly at the goal
I couldn't remember if I tried
I could have me mind erased and still not know
Exactly what I don't already know

Even as I had left Florida
