Motion City Soundtrack - Severance Lyrics




Hey, I forgot
Tripping into traffic,
Hypnotized by the Northern Lights
Dead end block
Static on the ceiling
I got sucked in

Hey, present tense
Slipping on the silence
Like a cloak made of rainy nights
Common sense
Barking out the order I got sucked in

I don’t know what I’m doing
The uncertainty is looming
Every heart rents a lonely room
This fever is forever
I’m not ready when they sever
You from me, it will be too soon

Hey, I forgot
Damage to the daughters
And the sons who will never learn
If I get caught
Promise me you’ll run
And you won’t stop

Hey, digging in
Cut me so I’ll feel
Like there’s a chance that I won’t return
Digging in
Hold me here forever
Please don’t stop

I don’t know what I’m doing
The uncertainty is looming
Every heart rents a lonely room
This fever is forever
I’m not ready when they sever
You from me, it will be too soon

The shock slips in
The ship sails on
I curse myself and everyone
You will leave no name
You will leave no trace
Just a question mark
And an empty space

Yeah, I forgot
Hold me here forever and don’t stop
Yeah, digging in
Tangle with yourself and you can’t win

Yeah, I forgot
Hold me here forever and don’t stop
Yeah, digging in
Tangle with yourself and you won’t win

  1. Julio Adrian Navarro Aceves

    Just a perfect song!

  2. Alana Rose

    "I curse myself and everyone!" 👏

  3. Paige Schwartz

    Go was perfect. no songs needed replacing or removing. Bands make EPs, it's OK if it's not in a full length album. it got released, that's all that should matter.

  4. Ryan Kelley

    I was at that concert!! Damn man, I was hoping they would play it. Such a perfect song.

  5. Gamin' Neko

    I just wish you could get the 7-inch "Making Moves" in Denmark, oh and I also wish I had something to play it on ):

  6. Robert

    you fuck ass!

  7. Mason Underwood

    Shut up dude GOD! You are always bitching about something!
    <3
    Thanks for the tip brah

  8. Robert

    "I curse myself and everyone"
    Such a powerful five words.

  9. Kenneth Bressler

    dude... chill

  10. Matt Moser

    I actually just created a acc so I could lesson u all, this band is awesome, no disagree but u all who say its the best are mistaken, there is one and only true god of music and u are but fools to think otherwise. ill hint with songs such as mother superior, everything evil, time consumer, sentry the defiant, any takers? the answer is Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria. listen and behold music that will leave you in awe of the human mind and the phenom known as demi gods. there I have spoken

    Ciera Baker

    Matt Moser thank you

  11. Connor Griffin

    I think they've been starting and ending records with more upbeat songs recently (Circuits/Alcohol, Worker Bee/The Weakends, and to a lesser extent Fell in Love/Even If It Kills Me), so it makes sense in that regard. I can't really see where this would fit if it wasn't an opener or closer, and I don't think it belongs there either.

  12. Jack Hendrickson

    I first heard this at a MCS concert in Seattle. It's been one of my favorites ever since. It's a damn good song.

  13. Zachary Campbell

    I don't agree thoroughly. This song is album quality and I agree it could have been on the album. But I feel we ended up with a pretty cohesive album. And for the record...Boxelder is an awesome track.

  14. jsh020

    Severence should have been the opener, circuts and wires and boxelder shouldnt have been on the album, alcohol eyes and bottom feeder should have replaced them, the darker sounding songs should of been all at once and in the second half going from everyone will die to happy anniversary for the album closer

    Missed opportunity if you ask me, some people wont care about track listings but those people are missing out on the thing known as the album experience

  15. Daniel Butler

    I kinda agree with you. Alcahol Eyes should have been a main track.

  16. jsh020

    i seriously feel like this shouldnt have been taken off GO, this is the perfect album opener, go was kind of a waste of potential due to poor track listings, the Bsides shouldnt of been B-sides some songs actually on the album like boxelder shouldnt of been on there, happy anniversary should of been the album closer not floating down the river. The tracks in between felt in random order. I wish i could go back in time and make justin chose better tracklisting to make the album experience better

  17. EvenifitKillMe

    This is the most Beautifulest song I've ever listened too!

  18. izzy w

    word dude!!

  19. Buddy Tyree

    Hands down one of Motion City's best tracks.

  20. Juani Müller

    I LOVE THIS SONG, BEEN LISTENING TO THE VIDEO IN THE RECORDING STUDIO TO JUST PLAY THE LITTLE PART OF THIS SONG

  21. Stephen Roche

    I've waited months for this song. so much joy

  22. SykesLoZ

    I have to say this song brought me to tears. it has to be one of the most powerful songs ive heard from them. and im glad to be buying the 7-inch. ill be listening to this for quite a while

  23. HiMyNameIsZack

    Such an incredible song

  24. Beeperkeeperz

    Songs great

  25. Javed Alli

    Flipping orgasmic song! Shoot me the download?
