Lyrics
It appears to me
Quoting alarms
Guillotine smirks
In your house I smothered

Sight unseen
Sworn to harm
Ground to a powder
And soaked through the board

Don't you ever, ever, ever trust my mercy
Don't you ever, ever, ever trust my mercy

When will you flirt with all that's burning
Keep them safe and by your side

Of all that's left
A lucid home
Anecdote settles
In the smear of this corpse

If the larvae speaks
Ask where to go
They mount the maker
With a sulfur in fume

Don?t you ever, ever, ever trust my mercy
Don?t you ever, ever, ever trust my mercy

When will you flirt with all that's burning
Keep them safe and by your side

Of all the warnings that you gave me
With all components in the fault

Have you ever heard me scraping it will be hard to hold

Don't you ever, ever, ever trust my mercy
Don't you ever, ever, ever trust my mercy

When will you flirt with all that's burning
Keep them safe and by your side

Of all the warnings that you gave me
With all components in the fault

Have you ever heard me scraping it will be hard to hold

All I hear mending the gap
Fall in here might not make it back
Call that someone may they hear you
Take me with you It's not safe in here

And all you ask is why, why, why
And all you ask is why I'm certain
You're holding on
Mirror floats to the surface (holding on)

Of all the warnings that you gave me
With all components in the fault

Have you ever heard me scraping it will be hard to hold

Of all the warnings that you gave me
With all components in the fault

Have you ever heard me scraping it will be hard to hold

They lost the presence they were holding
Looks like the tenants flickered off
If the cell that holds me breaks me
It'll be hard to hold
