lyrics

The water round the island's broken
A small scream fills the room
The hour prises time's eyelids open
Life invades the tomb.

I've been woken, broke and fixed
I've been filled with blood
Rivers flow now through my wrists.

I've always been afraid of you
'Cause you're honest
And I've always been afraid of truth above all
I've always been afraid of you
'Cause you're helpless and I'm helpless
And I'm lost and I'm leading the way.

The air was found with its silence stolen
Quiet all consumed
And every minute's a prize for hoping
Often lost in bloom.

I've been woken, broke and fixed
I've been filled with blood
Rivers flow now through my wrists.

I've always been afraid of you
'Cause you're honest
And I've always been afraid of truth above all
I've always been afraid of you
'Cause you're helpless and I'm helpless
And I'm lost and I'm leading the way.

I made an island of my closed fist
And drove it to my gut
Rivers flow now through my wrists.
