lyrics

Sometimes I wish I knew
Just what became of you
The needle threads through
All the wandering nights
And your chandelier eyes
Lost in the blue

I bit the innocence right off your lips
Vanity will be the death of me
In that hotel room by the shore
We wasted the hours because they were there

Our hope is clay
Melting in the rain
So far from home
So young, so alone

Now every night
The same dream finds me
I’m naked on your steps
All the birds are falling
There’s two hollow slits
Where your eyes should be

You made me a promise
You said you’d set me free

Our hope is clay
Melting in the rain
So far from home
So young, so alone

The tears fall down your breasts
Like tiny marbles of sorrow
Found at the bottom of every fountain

She says the mask suits me
Oh, but you’re looking too thin
Her mouth on my collarbone
So it ends like it begins
With nothing

Before the blood runs dry
And the order is sent
Cup my face in your hands
Kiss me like you kiss him
I’m just the latest victim

She says the mask suits me
Oh, but you’re looking too thin
Her mouth on my collarbone
So it ends like it begins
With nothing

I’m just the latest victim
I’m just a pawn in the system
I’m just the latest victim
And I’ll emerge from this
More dead than alive
