about

American Spirits is a song about being in a relationship that you know is damned to fail at some point and time. The nature of human beings would still remain in that relationship for temporary happiness, pleasure, and fulfillment. While writing this song I figured it could have two meanings so I wouldn't always relate it back to my ex-girlfriend, so I titled it American Spirits, which is a brand of cigarettes. In the habit of smoking cigarettes, you know you will die one day because of it, but you continue to smoke them for relief, pleasure, to fit in, whatever the hell you smoke cigarettes for... So this song represents the relation in between the two.

lyrics

American Spirits are seeping through the desperate times away from you.
Disappear into a cloud of smoke, sometimes I wonder if this is all a joke.
Tell me, tell me, things will all go away.
I'll turn on the lights tonight if you want to stay.
So many times I've tried to say we're through
You've come to me and you've given me something new.
I know it hurts when I step on you
My American Spirits,
I'll never give up on you.
American Spirits, you make me sin
I'm not always one to let you in.
A fatal timeline is running thin.
It makes me wonder how did this all begin.
ell me, tell me, things will all go away.
I'll turn on the lights tonight if you want to stay.
So many times I've tried to say we're through
You've come to me and you've given me something new.
I know it hurts when I step on you
My American Spirits,
I'll never give up on you
