Lyrics:
Watch me read you

The turning pages of an epic
Dissected hallucinogenic
Black Coffee addict life ended
Lies cold On that metal tray
Wasting away
I watch him sneer at me
From Beyond the grave
I hear him call for me

Watch me read you

I get scared when it falls dark
The creeping shadows up my arm
The sneakin scarecrows work their charm
It's circumstantial
The way I blink when you get mad
Feel disarmed when you get sad
But turn to run when we fall back on old behaviours

When the flavour turns from sweet to sour that's the hour that I seek
The heavy hearts
And tired retreats
With words of hatred
Watch it seep
Through skin like sap through bark
I cower in the dark til your return
When will I learn

We never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
Breathing the smoke from others mouths
And lying in the dirt
So make a promise but then later we can just forget
It's Hard to let your breath out when you're used to holding it

She'll go
Oh
Caught her through the window
Oh
It's her
Oh
Or maybe it's a shadow

You never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
But when you cry the light reflects and I see you again

Watch me read you

Like words ripped right off the page
Another ghost
Another day of melancholy
UV Rays
And heavy eyelids
You just decided
Not to care
Compressed your fears
And cut your hair
Lifted your shirt
To find there's nothing there

Now read me

Red wine carpet stains
With curly hair
And crazy eyes
Impulsive mouth
She loves the rain
But not the dark
You feel insane
The overpass
It's wet with blood
She turns to you
To say
Hey
We can’t exist
And in that moment
It's just bliss

It's like you've missed
A thousand years
And as you
Kiss it's like you drift
Between here and there
Between Real and fake
As I hold my breath
I can't see your face

Watch me read me
Ready you
Read then
Read us
Everyone's a burning book
On trust and lust and love and what we are
On What we're made of

We never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
Breathing the smoke from others mouths
And lying in the dirt
So make a promise so then later we can just forget
It's hard to let your breath out when you're used to holding it

She'll go
Oh
Caught her through the window
Oh
It's her
Oh
Maybe it's a shadow

You never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
But when you cry the light reflects and I see you again

So don't just see me

Oh surround me

It's getting harder babe to focus on just one thing

It's enigmatic
Truly astounding
The way we stand together
But we are still driftin

You are so absent
But you consume me
And when the sun goes down the night it wraps around me

You try to stand still
I can't help moving
You're like the moon that draws the tide that rushes through me

We never wanted to be more than

We never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
Breathing the smoke from others mouths
And lying in the dirt
So make a promise but then later we can just forget
It's Hard to let your breath out when you're used to holding it

She'll go
Oh
Caught her through the window
Oh
It's her
Oh
Maybe it's a shadow

You never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
But when you cry the light reflects and I see you again

I see you again

I watch you read me
The burning pages of my life
Reduced to ash
And overnight
I find my body is not mine
