lyrics

These walls are closing in, I’m tongue-tied wrapped up in loose string.
Old wolves creep in from a creaky back door come to tear at my silver throat-
I kiss their paws, they’re quick to snarl,
Old wolves move quick with the fresh blood drawn to paint portraits of a rosy dawn -
I thank them all, they soon depart.
Old wolves go running through the backwoods grinning, watch them bounding with their brothers in tow!

Now she floats uninterrupted in a void of her own -
Broken cigarettes I’m breaking down these antique walls, bombing bridges just to watch all them lovers fall.
Bloodshed in the early morn’ grew lillies up between my toes.

These flaws, I call my own - Split lips, calligraphy and acetone.
Old wives tell tales of the creatures long dead but i’ve collected them one and all -
They eat false pride, they breed by night.
Old wives lie still under sheets of down from the beasts that they no longer know-
I know them well, they show through tells.
Old wives go running to the backwoods screaming to be met by the hungry wolves.

Now she floats uninterrupted in a void of her own -
Broken cigarettes I’m breaking down these antique walls, bombing bridges just to watch all them lovers fall.
Bloodshed in the early morn’ grew lillies up between my toes.

I fought them all - you started this fire.
I don’t know why, night time is golden
when I’m all alone. Watch as the sky
closes in and I float.
Walking slow - breathe it in.

Now she floats uninterrupted in a void of her own -
Broken cigarettes I’m breaking down these antique walls, bombing bridges just to watch all them lovers fall.
Bloodshed in the early morn’ grew lillies up between my toes.
