the "highly anticipated" single from a model home life's upcoming EP


there's a certain sense of freedom in being told that you're free from all the things you thought you had to be

where do we go? so far from home
oh god i need you here, are you near?

when growing up the average way to live was twice a week. so i made my own and i made my peace

i knew all the right words and could write words like the best of them. too bad i never read the rest of them

i dont think we've ever wasted so much time on the wrong conclusions and insignificant bits of paper we find in our lives. my god, my dear! i've never seen this clear, as i have before and furthermore. the darkest glass is fogged over. my eyes are too young to see. my god we lost our way, how could this ever be?

and how do we know its all been done?
its over now, wish i would have known.
