Please pass me down the line.
Dirty fingers. Pass the time.
Build castles from nothing.
Knock them down to nothing.
We stare.

Bloodshot eyes. Cold coffee.
Stale cigarette with no light.
Hair put up like a prom queen.
Do you remember something we lost here?

We'll cut our teeth on the coldest air.
This is how we'll lose a little.
The crazy nights in our empty towns.
This is how we'll lose a little.

If you wait around, you might hear the sound of words escaping and coming back to kill.

This endless, black winter.
Detest me, then test me.
Pale wonder with dark eyes.
Pursed-lipped child. Plaid-skirt-thighs,
with sweat and betrayal.
A mind full of bad cable.
Pale wonder with dark eyes, meet me now if you can.

We'll cut our teeth on the coldest air.
This is how we'll lose a little.
The crazy nights in our empty towns.
This is how we'll lose a little.

If you wait around, you might hear the sound of words escaping and coming back to strike me down when everyone's around, taking their turns watching over me.

    General CommentI think this song is in a reference to a book called "fahrenheit 451", I think its talking about how a girl changed his way of thinking, and influenced him in some way.
