lyrics

I believe we had a falling out today.
Ideally I’d rather rot than stay awake.
You know I really wanna slap a sticker that says “Shit upon my mouth” because I’m sorry.
But I’m trying to convince myself that I don’t really wanna stay in bed and I don’t really wanna step outside.

I have a fever with its fingers around my neck.
And by the looks I’ll never get my hands to extend their grasp to save my life.
Can’t say I never tried.
Can’t say I’m sorry but I’m trying to convince myself that I never had a worthy say and I don’t really wanna step outside.

I, a bigger saint than you, have been known to sort through lies, mingle with pride, and extort the truth.
You, a better climber than me, have been known to rip the cord, topple the Earth, and admit defeat.
I, a bigger saint than you, have been known to sort through lies, mingle with pride, and extort the truth.
You, a better climber than me, have been known to rip the cord, topple the Earth, and admit defeat.

Our hearts part with ourselves as we walk away from this place.
Place that we built with our minds, like an agoraphobic dream.

‘Cause it’s all just a dream in this place we all call reality.
