lyrics

this constant fear of breeding with wildfires
giving birth to arsonists
armed with charcoal and the past
seeking vengeance for my own disbelief
waking up next to last nights' desperation
the isolation is unbearable

bruising and aching, torn apart again
healing and mending, but never forgiving
fate has found me stranded on this shore
left me for dead as the vultures arrive

clutching the last of these audacious nights
her scarlet eyes scarcely said it all
anticipation got the best of us

let down, let go, let the ocean drown us
repeat, remove, replace the air with ether

these veins connect us to the soil
our bodies are dissolving
into a single nights falter
is this the price of intimacy?

nothing left for anxiety to disintegrate
nothing left for sorrow to mourn

false hope fracturing what's left of this year
unstitching the bleak fate sown onto me
pale and worn out, i shelter
as she crawls out of my skin

clutching the last of these audacious nights
her scarlet eyes scarcely said it all
anticipation got the best of us
nothing left for sorrow to mourn
