lyrics

Beats skipping, moments drifting
Your words ripping through comforts
Meticulously tearing
At every page of the book

You’re bold and you’re brilliant
You mold like gum in your cheek
Each phrase, a play, every note
You intend, to suspend
This deepening discourse that renders
Us fools

You don’t owe me anything
We keep chasing these sheets over
Skeletal dreams
So save your sleepless soliloquy
I plead

You don’t crave the touch
Don’t cling to my lips like a flame to a torch
But you want to be close
So pull my arms around your bones

I hold you for silence
I hold your tongue in my teeth
I fold your mouth like a note
I descend, you ascend
A crescendo, a coarse rending whisper
You’re cruel

You don’t owe me anything
We keep chasing these sheets over
Skeletal dreams
So save your sleepless soliloquy
I plead

You don’t crave the touch
Don’t cling to my lips like a flame to a torch
But you want to be close
So pull my arms around your bones

You don’t crave the touch
Don’t cling to my lips like muscle to bone
But you want to be close
You want to feel love (repeat X2)
