lyrics

Happy sacrificial knives passing fist to voice to eyes I
don't know if you'll let me go this time

Not when I'm so very easily squeezed to death
Every city thinks I like it best

Bind my luggage to my ribs and pass me land to land
Transmute my love to give, I'll taste myself on other hands

I wanted running off to heal me but it won't
My wasted time still likes to drag me further on from home

I signed off on receipts of damage,
promised I'd do better, what pain can't I manage?

Flushed fake names in train station bathrooms
I close my eyes, sometimes it's like I never met you

Ignoring unknown numbers, naked photos, on my phone
I'll never get my secrets back but I can be alone

And no one knows me when the mourning's breaking down
They macerate the last remains from when I came around


Nowhere on my backbone has a place to graft on wings
My flesh is trickery, I fly away like anything

I wanted giving in to heal me but it won't
My traumatized desires like to drag me further on from home
