lyrics

So I’ll collect up my bones and teeth and move to the next uncertainty
Let the earth break beneath my feet, let the waters rise and swallow me

Give me a reason to refuse the whispering,
Their accusing fingers clawing after me

Just as the dog returns to its vomit, me to the aching of my stomach
(Controlled by the lifeblood of a slave)

I’ve met my accuser and so often fall asleep at his feet
When I searched for shelter I found disorder
But it was nothing new to me

Take me to her, take me to her
I need another taste of failure
Take me to her, take me to her
The remedy burns brighter than the cure

I fell in love with a dream, I fell in love with the chaos

I’ve been lying, I’ve been lying with a harlot named deceit
Justify, justify the blood I’ve let her siphon from me
Hearing and not perceiving, seeing and not believing,
Misfortune isn’t the enemy, it’s the the stone I call my heart
“Oh liberty, what crimes are committed in thy name” (Madame Roland, 1793)

Tragedy to tragedy: I sunk each ship for the sake of sinking
Oh, how preferences become a standard
Oh, how the dust lingers when I evaporate
