lyrics

Tongue’s off the razor’s edge.
Split in two, the pieces hiss.
Every word falls and bends
from crooked teeth and broken lips.

You snake your way into space, only it’s obvious.
So many self-made mistakes – there is nothing else.

You build your walls
with stories twice as tall,
slithering between.
Your city is built on fiction.
Stumbling in and out
of streets paved with doubt –
nothing’s what it seems.
Your city is built on fiction.

You make it up for me?
A coiled history.
A ghost’s words to make amends
when heaven falls from broken lips.

Circled cities, highways between
warped and turning, waiting to be erased.
North, east, south, west – compass spinning,
but always pointing away.

The lines you drew – well, they all lead back to you.
When the highway splits, you’ll choose no truth.
You stick around like a pushpin on a map forgotten.
