lyrics

You said "it's not what you know, but what you've learned to resent",
For me it's speaking in transit and choosing drugs over rent
Because the second you forget what it's like,
I promise you the mechanisms will continue to spiral
Despite the desires that we wrought from our lungs,
Lest the ever-present whispering of curses in your tongue
Far be it from me to alter our symmetry;
I can't help but feel our lines were never destined to meet

So do you need us now?
Because we need a sign;

Just give me anything, something I know I could feel
(And if you love me let me go)
And now, if this fear casts a shadow, will that make it real?
(Tighten your grip around my throat)

And if you love me,
Cast me to the fire, immolate my skin
Paint your face with the ashes
Cauterise our sin

Our leaders would see us smoulder
So we spit out the gasoline
They said you'll understand when you're older
They sit, they stir, they're all

Conspiring against us for eternity
Don't you see it's pointless to fight
When our wrists are bound by complacency?

You could've saved us

Cold sweating in the corner all alone
(You said there's not a bone)
My fingers shaking, hands are clasped while I try to atone
(Not a bone in your body)
For the demons in me, with all their feet in the door
(But it's not in your bones)
I promise you the mechanisms will be coming for more

It's in your soul

I'm getting kinda desperate here so just
Give me anything, something I know I could feel
(And if you love me let me go)
And now, if this fear casts a shadow, will that make it real?
(Tighten your grip around my throat)

And if you love me, let me go
Tighten your grip around my throat
