lyrics

it's some kind of joke
when i tell the truth
if i'm getting away at all
it's away from you
but i'm getting nowhere soon
the way back is long
put a pencil in the tape
and rewind what's wrong
////
it's some sort of fib
when you leak a lie
take a breather kid
and shut your eyes
because you're getting nowhere soon
the way back is long
put a pencil in the tape
and rewind what's wrong
////
we will dance in the dark
you'll be humming my tune
and in the lack of light
my fleeting feet will fly
i fear i'm afraid
scared to silently say
that i'm not the rock you need
i can barely keep my feet
i don't belong on your balance beam
////
it's that kind of ache
that has you sweating blood
when your phone won't shake
you can't calm your gut
it's there that you know
she isn't coming home
so you're scraping your skin
on your knees to atone
////
for stoning yourself
for sowing her seeds
for fucking around
for turning her down
for your love of the fire
for your leave of the heat
for the shape in your sheets
for the sheep that now sleeps
for the wolf in your brain
for the mound of magazines
you don't belong on this balance beam
////
i will dine in the dark
you'll be humming my tune
and in the lack of light
her sucker's skin will fry
because now i'm on fire
in love with your heat
and i don't belong on this balance beam
i don't belong on your balance beam
