Lyrics
I should have always known
You'd scratch that itch
When you asked for safe passage
On my shoulders where we slid
And just before you laid
Dead weight upon its shores
I stung you in the face
For that's the nature of my core

Because
I got distance
Don't let it close
Gotta let me know
You just gotta let me know

Because
Forget which way
Is out now
Gotta let me know
You just gotta let me know
I'm nowhere near
This place you wear
It's unforgivable
It knows that I am visible
I'm broken mirrors
And useless prayer
This lock is healing me
You know you came so willingly
Waiting is a vessel
That will take me to
Love, it knows no order
When you taste the truth
Because
I'm trapped in this cement husk
Gotta let me go
You just gotta let me go

Because
I paid with own touch now
I bought a little cut
There is blood for every month
In the way you used to
Call her wicked answers
Time is a plague
There's no time for this place
If you don't let me go
Heaven's made a cesspool of us all

I'm nowhere near
This place you wear
It's unforgivable
It knows that I am visible
I'm broken mirrors
And useless prayer
This lock is healing me
You know you came so willingly
There burns a kiss with serpent scales
There is no miracle
I lost your miracle

I wrap myself around
Your buried questions
Through blisters of confinement
I seek to drain
This broken shelter
To refill the pigment case
That I have left

Don't stay long
For teeth nurse
The first wound
Coats revolve
Hope to gain
What if we find
What tongue ties double Windsor
Invoke to no reply
Those that lie
Have froze
At the border
No implies
Close the frame
What if we find
The sunlight draws a curtain
Invoke to no reply
There's a place
Where this
Depth charge ignites
Where the soul has no purpose
I can't believe you
When your thirst won't let me go
I am the moment you were always speaking of
Because there's no fence will hold
The sentient culprit fall about it
Say where I can enter them
Culprit fell about it
One fell, the other taste won't lie
Make no doubt about it
How many blame
How many cave into the pressure I apply
If you take this breath of mine
