lyrics

There’s a fiction stuck in your teeth
On your black tongue’s affection that you don’t believe
You’re an empty hall that echoes conceit
In an abandoned building that burns and it bleeds
A screaming forest of falling trees
No clouds move for you when your clown lungs breathe
A dream is real when you’re asleep but you’re not here.

Without direction, you direct the scene
If you were young, you would be living beyond the screen
You’re fickle and you’re fake and you flee
You abandon anything when it wakes up real
A screaming forest of falling trees
No clouds move for you when your clown lungs breathe
A dream is real when you’re asleep but you’re not here.

People's faces are just faint traces
All your dreams now are just blank spaces
Constant status of constant stasis
You're a map of the loneliest places.
