You turn on a spindle.
I touch the clasp of your locket, with its picture held,
So we imagine a darkness where all shapes divide,
Well fine, don't you do what I want you to.
Cause you don't depend upon all the shit that I use to make my moods improve.
That crashed against the shore in one huge and useless roar.
Like a dream they came to cure the fever of my brain,
And they made me a necklace, hanging beads of sweat on a string of my regrets,
And they were singing, don't you do what you've wanted to.
Maybe the sun keeps coming up cause it's gotten used to you
