Somewhere darker, talking the same shite
I need a partner, well, are you out tonight?
It’s harder and harder to get you to listen
More I get through the gears, incapable of
Making alright decisions and having bad ideas…
pointless reciprocation, calling up our meaningless demise
you watch over me like a beguiling raven in disguise
crooning, you know I’d kill for those blackberry-bruised eyes
don’t need to count off three, two, one—i know what you mean
i’m already there darling, set the fucking mirror on fire again
and decide if you want all the scars pulled off of your skin
in the closet, seven minutes, but i don’t need your tongue
to tell the inside of my mouth that we’re both having fun
i swear i’m already out of it, trying to reach for your sun
is it under your dirty shirt? behind that crooked smirk you wear?
is it in an open bottle of jäger and a late-night truth or dare?
go ahead and spin it faster and faster, you know i won’t be scared
of the monster in the midst, under your bed, against your lips
i never wanted a body, i only wanted to hold my breath before i sink
you wished to be clever, here’s your chance to win me overthink
were you trying to lie? handed me a smug smoke to hide it?
my phonebook’s full of strangers, something you won’t admit
but i’ll suffocate on your cancer, still addicted to that bullshit
so what do you say, next morning’s only one car crash away
and i won’t ask for coffee or minty words on the pillowcase
i only ask that you keep your secrets well-groomed and safe
from their mindless impersonations, falling out of our defenceless paper skies
i watch over you like a commuter in your passenger seat, trying to play nice
go ahead, you know i’d die all over again just to be the only one that you despise.
Now it’s three in the morning
And I’m trying to change your mind
Left you multiple missed calls
And to my message you reply
“Why’d you only call me when you’re high?
Hi, why’d you only call me when you’re high?”
