Strung by vein to running mouth,
your whispers are the catalyst
Somebody please breath lies,
my blood's not thick enough
I can't hear my heartbeat
when you shut up still waiting for last rites
Still waiting on a goodbye kiss to sever the dead flesh
and walk away a part of you
Please don't tell me you're useless with threaded lips
My hands went numb to feel like you
I should have known you were no angel by the way you said my name
I'm running out of perfect moments
I've grown tired of clotting the blood
To whom it may concern, you'll never keep my scars from healing
You'll never leave my bridges burning
Consciousness comes and goes,
like the routine of three lost words
Lovers lay dead, and when you're bound and gagged
I defy you to define me,
it's the only way to feel like I'm still breathing
I long for fresh air, cleansed of sedition
The waters listen closer that I tell them everything
then take a deep breath

    This is such a great song and that is such a great line. First song I heard by these guys and it got me hooked.

    General Commenti think he put himself in the position of a kinda deranged, twisted and rejected kid at prom - who does some crazy shizzle then at the end im pretty sure he's talking about jumping into a river or an ocean. i love keith's lyrics.

    btw this is just my oppinion.
