lyrics

Fleeing from this
Years are coming at me
Miles too fast
My old worship
Seizing out of the ground
In rows straight and long
Thought it was gone

I don't need this ever-changing
High getting low
Where
Where to go?

I was sure I could not be swayed

Blinded daily
What is saving this
Wish some might was mine
Light and heavy
coming at me
You were not much if you were at all

If I knew then what I know now
I never would've let you come around
With all your words your trappings
Cloying, heavy, perfume

Oh its smoking
Held by nothing at all
Was only holding my breath down
Pulling under
All asunder
No precedent or future to keep track

First glance
Kept as an icon on my back

If I knew then
What I know now
I never would have let you come around
To dim my doorway
To drink me up like wine

I have known so many deaths
While you were gone
More and more
Even before I knew what was up
With everyone
And love how I would drown for hours in that heavy perfume

You're a bad bad bad bad bad bad bad
Bad man

There were words we spoke
I wish I didn't know
There were times that trickled out like mollasses warm and slow
Wish I could burn every hour
Like so many cigarettes
But it's a windy night
And they're hard to light
