LyricsEdit

I woke up in syncope, springtime when she came for me
Frame of reference shifted and then I knew nothing
Now I live my life through her lens, spineless bokeh radiance
Uninvited unrequited I know I know

Craving you, the hour is late, field of view desaturate
Sunlight takes me from the shelf, not oppressed: oppress myself
Panic spreads out of the void, dark room in a Polaroid
Think of nothing think of nothing and breathe

I light the fuse and you tranquillise
Masking cues, apathetic highs
Admit none of the fault but take all of the prize
Slipping back as the embers die

She knows what I’d do for her, riddles in the literature
Impostor syndrome hunting, cache the flow, I think I’m on to something
Tick tick tick so fucking slow, normalise when I feel low
Digits tighten armrest breaking. Down on my own again

So I light the fuse and you tranquillise
Masking cues, apathetic highs
Own none of the fault but take all of the prize
Slipping back as the embers die

Grow towards the light

I light the fuse and you tranquillise
Masking cues, apathetic highs
Own none of the fault but take all of the prize
Slipping back as the embers die

Why do I trust you now when I know your mind?
Why do I mask my thoughts when I know I’m right?
I’ll take all the fault and grow and take all the prize
Why should I breathe in the ashes of your lies?

Why do I run the risk when I know you’re mine?
Why do I mask my thoughts when I know I’m right?
Admit none of the fault but take all of the prize
Slipping back as the embers, as the embers die
