it's raining from the light fixtures the floors wide open swallow me whole don't miss a piece i'll go to hell this christmas only if i'm a good soul this year i've killed you and you've killed me serves us right for playing with knives a swear i've told you otherwise in fact i know for sure yet all my words are castaway and heard as something else i was reckless and irritable precisely why: i couldn't move on but i've moved on to a better place without you i don't know why i just held on simply speaking i adored you but tell me why we played with knives i swear i told you otherwise in fact i know for sure yet all my words are castaway and heard as something else i can't sit still you haunt my mind and cease to go away i've walked away and proudly haven't had to go your way it's raining from the light fixtures the floors wide open swallow me whole don't miss a piece i've killed you and you've killed me serves us right but tell me why it serves us right for playing with knives

there was a point in my life all i saw was false inside in place to place a false desire inside the minds of every eye i'll bring you down down down down down this thing that controls every life i'll bring you down down down down down the flag of your empire am i naive to believe it true that every lie is staged as true i oppose your imposed guidelines for how my life should fall in line i'll bring you down down down down down this thing that controls every life i'll bring you down down down down down the flag of your empire i'll bring you down down down down down this thing that controls every life i'll bring you down down down down down the hand that conducts genocide

careless in our desires reckless in our being all the while a common need that we have neglected a quote from my love rich in meaning, too complex for reading and here, here's another i'm having trouble reading i can walk away a thousand times but there's no leaving not until the mystery decides it's time what have we neglected what's this common need tell me your mystery which looms and threatens to leave me i'm afraid to see her go i'm afraid to lose my heart you're afraid to hold too tight for fear your might choke love to dead a quote from my love rich in meaning, too complex for reading and here, here's another i'm having trouble reading i can walk away a thousand times but there's no leaving not until the mystery decides it's time
