lyrics

You speak in cobwebs, spinning lies and dust.
Empty rooms in your head,
You try to pretend that they’re reserved for life.
And I believe you tried once upon a time
To escape your tangled traps and excuses,
But now you’ve given up.

And you’ve got the game learned perfectly,
You just spread out your demons like a virus on the breeze,
Then walk away.
And your misery loves to torture me.
You’re not without your reasons, but you revel in the sickness
Under the surface of a sunny day.
I let my guard down, trusted you anyway.
Sunshaded eyes just can’t see the light.
Say “Now you need me, right?
“I’ll take you away.”

Laughing at petals pushing up to the sky,
Say, “Why open up to the cold, why grow up just to die?”
And I believe you cared once upon a time.
There’s evidence that a soul took up residence in your shell,
But now you’re haunted.
A ghost so good at playing along, it’s memorized your lines,
And do you want it?
Or are you in there, somewhere, waiting to come alive?

And you’ve got the game learned perfectly,
You’re just living out your demons like you love the damn disease.
And you got away with killing me.
You’re not without your reasons, but you revel in the sickness
Under the surface of a sunny day.
I let my guard down, trusted you anyway.
Sunshaded eyes just can’t see the light.
Say “Now you need me, right?
“I’ll take you away.”
