Wait, a thousand tries to waste A lifetime going missing Late, finally stepped into myself with no one else For an instant Shout it out loud & listen like a lover You’re one in the crowd with what you whisper under covers Penetrate me in my skin It’s safe for two, come in, I’m listening Fate, just a rumor to explain how our bliss is made. I’m glistening. And I’ve finally found a way, When you’re lying next to me, To make a peace with this body, I might never be the same. I hope you’ll wait.
2.
Mind reading is my best bet They’re staring through my windows again It’s all trash in the apartment It’s all trash on my skeleton Don’t have the wherewithal to, Don’t have the drugs that I’m used to, Screamed at the walls but they don’t scream back. I meant to call you Mary Lee, Haven’t been myself lately And you know how it goes everytime that we chat. “What was I gonna say?” It never mattered anyway. These conversations, they’re quite contagious I’m right back here where I wanna be Do I got the shakes or do they got me? I’m right back here where I wanna be Hold fast hope that I’ll never leave.

Out of bodying just to get time up to speed Takes a little more each day. I’m not losing any sleep. Sleeping in in all my clothes and Posture has become atrocious Dragging days for years on end, It aches but I’m not listening. You haven’t learned anything at all, regardless of symmetry. Hijacking your sympathies and drowning in your grief Asking not for forgiveness, it’s the company I keep. I’m keeping track of every lie and crossing t’s and dotting i’s And it’s hard to say how this one ends, To the top we’ll start back up again. You haven’t learned anything at all regardless of symmetry.

Don’t, if you see the light, if you wanna try. Don’t, if you see the light intensify. All the stars are leaking out tonight Begging to put up a fight. Don’t, when you see the light, if you wanna try. Don’t, you should stay the night to pacify. Owned when you learned to lie, when you learned to hide That all the leaves are shaking in your life But all that leaves is everything behind you, for some good news. Only lovers are left alive Only are we all star crossed in the night I don’t expect you to understand, I didn’t think you would. But just don’t.

When you heard your own voice on the answering machine filled with tape and hiss and without body, I know what the feeling means, i know what it means without you. It was never meant to last. Between the shadows and ghosts there’s proof when you see your own breath and alternative reflections on VHS. I know what the feeling means, I know what it means without you. It was never meant to last. Isn’t there somewhere I ought to be Isn’t there anything on TV? Isn’t there someone I ought to be, so strange so strange, hanging phantom holds on me.
6.
I’m lost in the lines I’ve memorized Tired cues betray my liar’s eyes And I’m suddenly aware of transparency I shudder to think that you could see through me But you can say what you mean to me, you can say anything It’s cowardice, that’s all it’s ever been How convenient, wrapped in the warmth of myth I’m struggling to unlearn, to forget I’m struggling to speak but now I’m listening. And you can say what you mean to me, you can say anything

As with all things fleeting and prone to evaporate, I’m clinging on with every shred of musterable strength Hovering between past and future perfect tense, I’m irrelevant, Without conflict I don’t think I could exist. And I was looking for someone, your only. So please don’t say it’s over once we’re already off the ground I’d chase the sun around the globe if it meant never coming down If everything between us is just chemicals and math, It’s no less tragic - nostalgists chasing down what they already have. So stop looking for your only.

Do you remember falling face first Into that cinematic dumpster? I am the calm inside your shaking bones Saying, “don't go.” These crushing stones, I'm never free From fate rebuilding my misery. Just hide away in my bedroom and Stare at a screen. “Don't go.” But I just can't stay awake and I don't know why I bothers me. I know I said I wanted to be alone But in that slightly sarcastic tone. Forever seems like a long time When you're waiting on a telephone. Saying, “I don't know.” But I just can't stay awake and I don't know why it bothers me. “May the days be aimless. Let the seasons drift. Do not advance the action According to a plan.”

Carried away by minutiae in the tedious array of the outside world. Make believe in their affections and accords. It’s here to stay or it’s all falling away you’ll be dreaming under marigold anyway So the church bells ring. is it a wedding or a funeral that they sing? Only saints can say but piety’s a shit act anyway it’s here to stay or its all falling away but you’ll be dreaming under marigold anyway I wouldn’t say that nothing gold can stay but you’ll be dreaming under marigold anyway last nights last rites long rides wrong sides it’s here to stay or it’s all falling away but you’ll be dreaming under marigold anyway I wouldn’t say that nothing gold can stay but you’ll be dreaming under marigold anyway

You could say it was accident. You could say it just got out of hand. You could say it's what you really want but you're caught in the guilt and the shame again When all the parts they just didn’t fit, well they might one day but they haven’t yet. You could tell them that you’re sorry again and we can all pretend to forgive and forget Fucking viva, fucking assholes I don't need a thing to thing to atone You had to be there to let it happen Fucking viva, look out heaven It’s not all bad It’s just truth hidden Matter of fact you’ll get used to it You’ll be warmer than you’ve ever been and You can thank me later when we meet again Remember feelings until they all turned hard? Remember ideals and purpose until they fell apart? You could say the engine just wouldn’t start and you’re stuck and stalled in the carpark Fucking viva, fucking assholes I don't need a thing to thing to atone You had to be there to let it happen Fucking viva, look out heaven Of course it's empty And hell is freezing I never listened or paid attention I guess it figures You’re bored and leaving Fuckin viva, deleted.
