i will watch your eyes move for a bit while you're sleeping
i don't think you'd mind because i'm always mispeaking
and i'm working on something to make you feel better
a caustic concoction of thigh-highs and sweaters
i hope you know i made this all up
i hope that you don't give a fuck
i wish that i'd made this all up
because i know that you don't give a fuck
i've got arms
i've got history books all memorized
well the covers at least
not so much what's inside
but i say that's what counts
if you're counting by fives
fast-forwarding through
all those muskets and knives
you're at war
with the floor
but my arms
are the ropes
that have kept you down here for as long as you've known
unless you've got
something sharp
i suggest you let go
because you're not getting up
and you're not going home
i need you to watch me
get sad and grow old
(why can't i feel anything from anyone other than you)
i hope that you know i mean well
because heaven without you is hell
the earth without us is just math air and dust
until we say that it's something else
