lyrics

The devil and the distant lovers
Spread together once in front of me
And with thorns embracing my forehead
In your careless wasteland, now I see

I don't really want to tear your throat out with my own
A waxwing with a hawk's brutality and vengeful need to shake your bones
I tried to keep decisions quiet, how dare I like you defiantly
When you want to die alone divining with the bones you pulled from me

I crushed glass early and pushed the shards
Into my ugly heart, to get it hardened
Cuz I always knew deep down that you
Would gladly do it for me if I didn't start

Ten of swords, no two of cups
It's hopeless now for both of us
No favor at your side, no ecstacy
Walk over me, I know you show no mercy on your enemies

I don't really want to tear your throat out with my own
Waxwing with a hawk's brutality and vengeful need to shake your bones
I was all falling melting for every scraped together inch of you
And your teeth were sinking in but what could a smitten schoolboy do?

When I crushed glass early and pushed the shards
Into my ugly heart, to get it hardened
Cuz I always knew deep down that you
Would gladly do it for me if I didn't start

Wanting wisdom, delicate, knees on the floor, your eager pet
You think you vivisect me, no relief, your lancet learns my grief
As if it helps to drain, Mistaking honest rage for fleeting pain
As if the power's yours

When I crushed glass early and pushed the shards
Into my ugly heart, to get it hardened
Cuz I always knew deep down that you
Would gladly do it for me if I didn't start

Now you can't hurt me more than a pin's length and sharpness
Through my hand, some broken skin, once held out to understand
The places that you've been but my words were never worthy,
And I'm not someone you'd chase down
You turn your eyes away from the prey you couldn't kill now
It's okay, okay?
Weren't we nothing anyway?
No chance to try, no time to say
That I could've loved you in a while and learned your ways
I could've loved you
Through the length of judgment day
