-Citizen, The Summer
How does it feel to be all that you are, all that you want to be? Is that what you want to be? And how does it feel to be what you’ve become, what you said you would never be? ‘Cause I don’t feel anything anymore.
-Citizen, How Does It Feel?

At times I count myself out, wait for days till I can be found. At times I’m just down and out, wait for days till I can be found. Once I’m alive again, once I’m alive I start to love again… but I still shut my eyes.
-Citizen, I Still Shut My Eyes
And I hear you’ve ended up fine. And I’ve heard you’re making out alright. I’ve heard you still don’t like the cold outside. And I’ve heard you still got trouble tracking time. And I heard you said one time that I never even fucking cross your mind. I guess I’ll act like that’s fine, but you should know that you cross mine all the time.
