lyrics

superstitious sweetheart you're a mess
sick and seeking sanctuary in your own distress
the embers of an adolescence smolder in your breast
but you're the same

sweetheart clip my wings i am a skeptic
with everything in motion you're a pawn you must accept it
god you are an angel when you choose to least express it
anyways

she says i am no beauty
i am cruel and i am haunting
i am weak and i am weary
i am sure you do not want me

and i say although i am already married
to the demon drink
i like the way you think
so let's go
dancing

a little life and the city lights and now you figure
the world it ain't my garden no it's so much fucking bigger
and although i can't see the stars behind a tide of piss and vinegar
i've changed

and now the lip splits open
the salt of a single syllable misspoken
and the lock outside your bedroom door is always broken
but i'll wait

i said i am inert
i am the vessel and you steer me
i am supervised and sickened by
the things that i hold dearly

and she reeled me in by singing
oh my dear i'm nothing like my mom and dad
so put the money in the bag
and we'll go
dancing
