lyrics

Tornado, I welcome you
Come blow my foundations away
Make a path to the living room
Through history and desolate days
The witches that watch all wait for your season to change
But no riches or fortunes could ever lay claim to your face.

I was lifted like an air balloon
Thrown like a penny from my doom
If you're listening to yourself, you can be free.
I've seen a skeleton in my own skin
Maybe it helps to end before you begin
I've been listening to my soul and not my fear.

I was a broken yolk, an egg-on-face joke,
In search of poison apples unafraid I'd choke,
I was a lost and found of broken crowns
I was Jack chasing Jill just to hit the ground.

Volcano, you melt me
I'm devastated by your grace
Make me pass on my living love
Through hysterical destructive haze
The witches that watch you just wilt and then wither away
For no riches or fortunes could ever lay claim to your face.

I was living like a sad cartoon
Blown like a wish that came true too soon
If you're living by your lies, you will believe.
I've seen a skeleton turn to my own twin
Maybe it's hell to pay for a hot heaven
I've been saving all the souls the bank don't freeze.

I was a broken yolk, an egg-on-face joke,
In search of poison apples unafraid I'd choke,
I was a lost and found of broken crowns
I was Jack chasing Jill just to hit the ground.
I was a broken yolk, an egg-on-face joke,
In search of poison apples unafraid I'd choke,
I was a lost and found of broken crowns
I was Jack chasing Jill.
I was a lost and found of broken crowns
I was Jack chasing Jill just to hit the ground.
A lost and found of broken crowns
I was Jack chasing Jill.
