lyrics

Your advances mean a lot, as you scan through these pages of over-thought. Don’t scream. Your body’s alive. Don’t believe all the shit I said and when I said it.

Your father knew your name, and dwelled in it before you came. You’ll gather yourself in shame and make a painful exchange sound the same.

“Don’t let me down again.” She said I said it in my sleep and I meant it. You’ll scream out to comfort your eyes and breath to stay quiet. Don’t let me down again.

The buyer’s made your fame. I was a runner, I held on through falls and change, within Leviticus I’d do the same.

“Don’t let me down again.” She said I said it in my sleep and I meant it. You’ll scream out in shades of grey and let the light guide the way. Don’t let me down again.

I was a runner and I ran through my life. You were the squire that said that it’s alright.
