lyrics

Strung out on fevers I’m running if I’m so scared of the door
How can I feel next to nothing as I’m slipping through the floor
Past the water’s edge, into the blue below
I know better, yet further still I go

Her eyes were staring as wildly as the tiger on her hip
A warning whispered to lightly there was something that I missed
There was something else, sketched upon her lips
And I’m reaching out into the blue abyss

The architect in the water burned away by alchemy
And in the park it’s a slaughter but it’s hidden in the trees
As the curtains catch and the flames rush out to the sea
Lift another latch, yet never to be free.
