lyrics

cheekbones​​ ​​that​​ ​​shine​​ ​​like​​ ​​diamonds​ ​oh​​ ​​darkness,​​ ​​i​​ ​​am​​ ​​nerveless eyes​​ ​​closed​​ ​​for​​ ​​lack​​ ​​of​​ ​​purpose
lack​​ ​​of​​ ​​light​​ ​​or​​ ​​fear​​ ​​that​​ ​​i’ll​​ ​​lose​​ ​​it
i’m​​ ​​still​​ ​​afraid​​ ​​of​​ ​​the​​ ​​dark
you​​ ​​were​​ ​​my​​ ​​light​​ ​​for​​ ​​so​​ ​​long​ ​oceans​​ ​​deep​​ ​​and​​ ​​mountains​​ ​​tall​ ​our​​ ​​future​​ ​​plays​​ ​​tricks​​ ​​on​​ ​​us,​​ ​​huh?
stories​​ ​​that​​ ​​wreak​​ ​​of​​ ​​fiction
adorned,​​ ​​written​​ ​​in​​ ​​cursive
you​​ ​​were​​ ​​a​​ ​​catholic​​ ​​school​​ ​​kid
you​​ ​​kept​​ ​​quiet​​ ​​for​​ ​​fear​​ ​​that​​ ​​you’d​​ ​​chose​​ ​​this​ ​dimples​​ ​​that​​ ​​cut​​ ​​through​​ ​​eyelids
oh,​​ ​​heartlessness​​ ​​is​​ ​​burden
high​​ ​​lows,​​ ​​for​​ ​​you’re​​ ​​uncertain
of​​ ​​eagerness​​ ​​or​​ ​​fear​​ ​​that​​ ​​you’ll​​ ​​lose​​ ​​it​ ​or​​ ​​fear​​ ​​that​​ ​​you’ll​​ ​​lose​​ ​​it​​ ​​(x4)
the​​ ​​person​​ ​​you​​ ​​made​​ ​​yourself​​ ​​out​​ ​​to​​ ​​be​ ​would​​ ​​feel​​ ​​sorry​​ ​​for​​ ​​what​​ ​​you've​​ ​​done​​ ​​to​​ ​​me​ ​like​​ ​​scrapped​​ ​​sheet​​ ​​metal​​ ​​shaves​ ​ivories​ ​you​​ ​​started​​ ​​out​​ ​​slow​​ ​​but​​ ​​you​​ ​​cut​​ ​​your​​ ​​teeth​ ​you​​ ​​cut​​ ​​your​​ ​​teeth
cheekbones​​ ​​that​​ ​​shine​​ ​​like​​ ​​diamonds​ ​oh​​ ​​darkness,​​ ​​i​​ ​​am​​ ​​nerveless eyes​​ ​​closed​​ ​​for​​ ​​lack​​ ​​of​​ ​​purpose
lack​​ ​​of​​ ​​light​​ ​​or​​ ​​fear​​ ​​that​​ ​​i’ll​​ ​​lose​​ ​​it
or​​​​fear​​​​that​​​​i’ll​​​​lose​​​​it​​or​​​​fear​​​​that​​​​i’ll​​​​lose​​​​it​​or​​​​fear​​​​that​​​​i’ll​​​​lose​​​​it
you’ve​​ ​​never​​ ​​felt​​ ​​sorry​​ ​​at​​ ​​all the​​​​person​​​​you’ve​​​​made​​​​yourself​​​​out​​​​to​​​​be​​would​​​​feel​​​​sorry​​​​for​​​​what​​​​you've​​​​done​​​​to​​​​me​​like​​​​scrapped​​​​sheet​​​​metal​ ​shaves​​ ​​ivories​ ​started​​ ​​out​​ ​​slow​​ ​​but​​ ​​you​​ ​​cut​​ ​​your​​ ​​teeth
you​​ ​​cut​​ ​​your​​ ​​teeth
