about

'All The King's Memories' is an aching, swaying work of semiacoustic sincerity. A projection of the torment of a sorry, self-destructive state of mind.

Track Name: All The King's Memories
I must have missed my chance to feel welcome
In any case I've found my shelter for the night
Show me the time that I might leave early
Why should I wait for morning to show mercy with the light?
Why should I wait for anything at all?

Throw me a bone that I will see it buried
Not just today but all the days that I remain
I jump the wall and what puts me back together
Is making promise after promise I will never jump again
And making certain I am grounded after all

I should have known, I should have known better
Now looking back, I should have done so much better
Not that it helps, I should've known in an instant

All the King's hopes and all the King's memories
Lost in the laundry run but never gone for good
I've tried to cope, forgetting so contently
Somehow I treat my love like I said I never would
Sometimes I wonder why I even love at all

I should've known, I should've known better
Now looking back, I should've done so much better
Not that it helps, I should've known in an instant

Not that it helps, I should've known in an instant
