lyrics

I’ll never be the last man standing,
Just the last one who cares.
Trapped in your pity-felt smiles
And emotion-lost stares.
My role secondary only
To those who came before.
A footnote, mistake, cheap novelty.
Now a past to ignore.

That’s when I say:

This is a salute towards unconditional surrender,
To the horrible truth that manifested itself in her.
This is a song, this is a song of surrender.

I want, I need, but I’m realistic.
Desire is denial.
Rejection her remaining comfort.
Gives her peace for a while.
A show of strength, a show of weakness,
The end result is the same.
A win, a loss, it doesn’t matter.
To her, it’s still just a game.

That’s when I say:

This is a salute towards unconditional surrender,
To the horrible truth that manifested itself in her.
This is a song, this is a song of surrender.

This is the end, but this ain’t it.
A waste of time and a waste of breath.
Never in the right, always left
Alone in the cold
Playing love like roulette.
This is the end, but this ain’t it.
This is the end, but this ain’t it.
This is the end, but this ain’t it.
This is the end.

about

Post Adolescence Seattle, Washington

Drawing from 80s post-punk sounds of the Buzzcocks, Placebo, and Manic Street Preachers, Post Adolescence and their album “My Nothing” demonstrate a British Post-Punk-Glam sound that belongs only to them. These pure pop sounds find the “young and angry” pleasure center for which all of us lust. In the truest sense, they are at the leading edge of the next wave of the post-modern rock movement. ... more
