lyrics

you're not afraid to die & it makes me scared
you sat in your car in the cold so impaired
i was in a cathedral watching superficial
& your soul was cold dying in the thistle
you wrote a note crying in the evening
some never read words highlighting grieving
i was in an apartment, the wrong reasons screaming
& you were to the side of the road, not feeling, freezing

& i'm gonna help you out
if you feel like all the light is in a deluge
i'm gonna call the line just a little bit more for you

when you're losing your grip on it, don't withdraw
pull the moon out from your tongue
& put the sun in your jaw
& when your body is laying there, whirring on
disregard the distance and don't worry, mom

don't follow him, don't follow him

thanking my sister that she was with her, forty phonecalls
speaking to police, not sleeping in sheets, following the protocol
her whole earth was set for "better worth" by morning
not leaving a letter or any sort of warning

& i said i'd help you out if you felt like all the light was in a deluge
i didn't pick up the line or return it, that's how i do
but i'm well aware of all the defects
& i'm apprehensive of all it's effects
apology to my subjects

when you're losing your grip on it, don't withdraw
pull the moon out from your tongue
& put the sun in your jaw
& when your body is laying there, whirring on
disregard the distance and don't worry, mom

& if you're worried about the weather
whether you're anxious or not
your heart it is a faucet
let love blossom turn it on
you've moved your room numerous times
it's time to wipe the woe on your skirt
you're living with what you used to be
do you see how it hurts?
