morning hits and it all falls apart
and I can see my words plummet from my lips
a constant Freudian slip
my heart's in the wrong place but everything I say
is oh so bitterly true in a way

just give me a reason to look left and look right
or just give me a reason not to step into the blight
or just give me a second where I don't stare through glass eyes
or just long for accidents that total up with our demise

and the signs draw my eyes back to you
like they ever diverted
macabre setting, the dead ends we're heading
so you were always so much better off forgetting

trace your shadow along the walls of the fake collection
I can't see you through windshields or cinema reflections
blood splattered lovers in the red of your complexion
your smile tears through my veins like a lethal injection

you can burn your throat till it freezes your bones
but I don't think I've ever felt more alone
than when you walked past me like I didn't exist
like I was just another face on an erstwhile list

I don't wanna know if it's set in stone
I don't wanna know if it'll take it's toll
I don't wanna know what I've already said
you're all it takes to tear me to shreds

it repeats our tautology
holds blades to our longevity
waters we stopped treading, spent sunrise regretting
so you were always so much better off forgetting

I don't need you.
I don't need the truth.
I just wanna believe in something bigger than us.
