This is the very first song we ever wrote.


Manipulation is second nature
When deceit is in your nomenclature
I never want what isn’t real
You only want what you can steal
All is fair in love and war
When no one knows what to fight for

We are at a loss my dear
A coin toss of hope and fear
I only want what I can’t have
You only want what you can stab
All is fair in love and war
Cause no one knows what to fight for

This is a menial wish for fire that burns
Like religious enthusiasts with material concerns
Invisible hands meet mutual wants
Lack of intention and unwanted taunts
No way to mediate, how can I calculate it
Contemplate my mental state
Your orbit pulls me in and I am forced to spin
I’m the fish you are the win
I’m the flesh and you’re the sin

But you must be the square root of two
Cause I feel so irrational around you
