lyrics

He was the one, who in the corner of his eye
He kept her safely moving, while quietly trying
To show her it was always him she was always needing
But he wouldn’t complain about bleeding again

No, he wouldn’t complain about bleeding again
There was too much advice from too many friends
With all the attention from everyone else but her


Prideful anger, how could you not miss losing my imperfection?
My heart of degenerate bliss (and slow breathing)
Nothing is leaving, I’m full of monotonous air
Dying trust in your filth, breathe me ill and I will faint (complications from living)

All you are giving are headaches
And this is how my chest breaks, broken (still beating)
My heart is a stage, and it’s open (still bleeding)
Wage your war dear, but please be pleading

For your heart to match my tempo
For your pulse to match my beat

Throwing caution to your wind
I’m seeing the ease of crashing and burning
Throwing caution to your wind
And you blow me down
And you blow me down
Yeah you blow me down


So it ends with him breathing too quickly
And briefly deciding he’s done, he won’t wait anymore
But he does, and for once he’d prefer that his fronts could break way
By way of some apathy, instead in his head
As he jumps for the bed with the caring, and the feeling
Too much in the beating place that is
Overdressed in his chest, with the sarcastic wit and a grin made of plastic

Now I’m talking to you, do you think that your pulse
Could it match my...
Could your pulse ever match my beat?

Throwing caution to your wind
I’m seeing the ease of crashing and burning
Throwing caution to your wind
And you blow me down
And you blow me down
Yeah you blow me down

He was the one, who in the corner of his eye
He kept her safely moving, while quietly trying
To show her it was always him she was always needing
But he wouldn’t complain about bleeding again
