Track Name: holding a moth by the wings (hands for scissors)
for this i burn alive
in beautiful blonde light
pulled like flesh from dreams of your beautiful blonde light
suspend me, drain me
in that fear, i wish to be held just as close and fall the same as the sun
let it set one final time
cut me out of this
one final time, fall apart
Track Name: it's not just a feeling, you are being watched
the splinters and seconds passed between us spoil like lungs protecting a garden
and the inevitable wilting
leaning into rivers as they run dry
now line the room with blood dancing across my wrist
i shred my fingers on glass i once looked through, cold and haunting
as the ache binds it's host
all we know has failed
all we loved was never there
with a wish to flow like water, i will crash harder than ever
cold and haunting
