I’ve made the same mistake twice Don’t be like me I can’t be everything all at once I can’t be everything that you want

Snake under my blanket Takes all that it needs to Pay for somebody else’s crime I am on fire Fake your stolen treasure Break all of your windows Face is too much to see I am on fire

Cycling between one and five Trying to get a reaction from you We’re all innocent Do anything to be content It turns you on and on and off again It’s all innocent One of these days it’ll all fall apart And I’ll be there I’ll be there We’re all innocent Do anything to be content It turns you on and on and off again It’s all innocent Falling, it’s falling, it’s falling, it’s falling

All you ever wanted to be was single You… Eye for an eye, I suppose Eye for an eye I've been told Eye for an eye, so it goes You always cut to the chase

A man starved ten feet from my step I saw him plenty of times before He was tall Did anybody love him? It’s my fault It’s my fault I’d like to think we’re more than animals But the evidence is slim to none Are you so important you should live forever? I think not My dog was hit in the street A black car The driver never saw her We talked for the first time in years I told her, “that’s all, there’s probably nothing after this” I’d like to think we’re more than animals But the evidence is slim to none Are you so important you should live forever? I think not So prideful So ungrateful for this So impossible This is impossible

You’re not some soldier Staring it in the face Heart inside out Lady full of grace Oh, god It’s all conjecture You’re not his mother Staring him in the face Eyes inside out Oh, god It’s all conjecture

The night my brother and I got fucked up You stood out in the snow In a dress and boots I felt so bad for you Freezing and unable to move from your position Behind a grave Sitting handcuffed on the curb I kept looking in your direction Hoping that you were safe and you weren’t scared And you could get back to your fiancé He’d do better than me He does better than me I wonder if you thought about it later I know just what you did It took me awhile to realize that you never cared about this You used to be so beautiful, what happened? You used to be great It’s strange to see you every day And then never see you again

Fissure Pressure Skyline Laughter La-la-la-la Failure Of sinners Save us, Redeemer

Steam poured into the rain They fought like animals The fire grew anyway Like silence I rest I am silence, become death It all boils down Take your sons and your daughters Bury them deep And wait your turn Like silence I rest I am silence, become death Thoughts run in circles and tire like a child We’ll all burn in hell I have seen enough to know This is killing me And I’ve only asked for rest Don’t hold me to things that I’ve said I was so simple You become someone else every day I thought I’d be better (I have seen enough to know This is killing me I’m drowning under the ice I’d hope you would understand) Just listen: I want to hold your hand Be patient I’d hope you would understand Don’t hold me to things that I’ve said I was so simple You’ve become someone else every day I thought we’d be more than this
