Off the upcoming Water Weight/Step Aside 7"
Thanks to Dave Knox and Seth Henderson for their work producing this song. Mastered by John Naclerio at NADA Recording Studio.


Step aside, I'm losing patience with the way you waste your life, and now I'm ripping at the seams you stitched too tight. Recycling old habits won't clean the dirt that you left behind. Quietly, I'm moving on. Stagger back; don't break my fall. I know my place, and it's not far from the bed you make. Selfish decay rots away at the foundation that we tried to lay. With all feelings aside I needed distance space and time. Overworked with thoughts of my fleeting willingness to try. A tethered weight strapped down to the bottom of my feet just to hold me in place: I felt you lean on me for song long and I can't believe that you think I'm still your property. Quick pick, tight grip, I'm running in circles so hastily.
