lyrics

Notice how skin and nails make marks on tabletops
Another scratch unintended
Skin its self is similar in surface
How the cracks were once so smooth and untouched
This form you know this is the only one you've got
This is the one that's yours
And you do what you want, right, of course

Through our night promises we cater to sentiment
Our primal sense of drunken sweat in a bedroom wrecked
This ship can't sail straight with wind currents like yesterday
Now the sails are ripped to shreds and stained red
Have we run out of thread

Tell me now some hidden thought some wild darkest fear
You know the truth is that the two can overlap
And in exchange I'll divulge obsession at it's best
Which isn't much like real love
Is fate a force that sets us up to choose a path
a single one in turn
We give up what we want, right on course

My God what awful tricks to have us want what makes us sick
And lose respect for the safer life cause it is seems so trite
I've grown too tired of metaphors of ships at sea
Now we need to move our legs and take a step
One we pick ourselves

So you punched a hole in the wall
So what it's a blip in time it doesn't tell of any past or future state
Rise follows fall
Know this when you trip and bloody up your face
That blood is what we make

We fuck up, fall apart, feel ashamed until we can't focus on keeping in motion our natural state
Pride is a heavy weight fastened to tight around, choking us by the neck, pulling our feet off the ground
