lyrics

You are an empty home, reverberating discordant
Born and dead in the same damned breath
I wait. I can't. I kill it 'til it's breathing again
You are the iron lung. Force me alive
Pumping air so I can howl these crimes to the moon
Hanging like my head when you said it:

If you don't, then why did you say you did?
Like I'd breathe you in
It's living in me
If you don't, then why'd you shake off the rust
For me to hold in my lungs?
You're hanging on me

Wasted so much time digging my own grave
Spent none of it picking out the box I'd bury myself in
And watched the paint fade and peel around me
As you sent your worms, your worst
To chew through the arms that held me
You're waking

If you don't, then why did you say you did?
Like I'd breathe you in
It's living in me
If you don't, then why'd you shake off the rust
For me to hold in my lungs?
You're hanging on me
