She leaps higher than the scale
And then falls like iron like screaming air
Right down in front of me
I don't know how it came to this
I am so scarred up with cigarettes
Cigarettes and leaks

But I know I always stay possessed
Like some preacher to a crucifix
If you drive your nails into me

We're sitting on the floor in a pile
Trading our arms for some wings of harm
I am goddamn
Been blow from the hinge
I can now barely stand
Oh, Jaelyn I can, I can feel you like the wind(?)

The beatings that rotation brings
Has us betting down on anything
But as our shrinking lives collide and rip
The sound is beautiful and lean
Yeah

But I never planned to live like this
Empty vaults, and a rolling kiss
Oh I never planned on anything

Sitting on the floor in a smile
I'm tearing it apart, like poverty art
You are god sent

We've been both thrown over the hinge
And I can now barely stand
Oh, Jaelyn I can, I can feel you like the wind

I fear it’s getting close to the end
I can feel it in the warm ailing wind.
She says, “I don’t want to think about that cause I am married to imaginary friends.”
So come on, come on in

    General CommentSo no one get confuse, the question marks mean I don't know the line, not just the word before them.

    General CommentShe leaps higher than the scale
    And then falls like iron
    Like screaming it right down in front of me
    I don't know how it came to this
    I am ?? caught up with cigarettes
    Cigarettes and leaves

    But I know I always stay posessed
    Like some preacher to a crucifix
    If you drive your nail into me

    Sitting on the floor in apartment trading my arms fill some ??
    I am goddamn
    I've been broken over the edge(?)
    I can now barely stand
    Oh, damn it I can, I can feel you like the wind

    The beatings that rotation brings
    Has us betting down on anything
    But as our shrinking lives collide and rip
    The sound is beautiful ??
    Yeah

    But I never planned to live like this
    Empty thoughts, a rollin kiss
    Oh I never planned on anything

    I'm sitting on the floor
    with a smile, tear it apart
    like part of the art
    You are a godsend

    We've been blown away from the edge
    And I can now barely stand
    Oh, damn it I can, I can feel you like the wind

    I fear it’s getting close to the end
    I can feel it in the warm ailing wind.
    She says, “I don’t want to think about that cause I am married to imaginary friends.”
    So come on, come on in

    this is what i got. we'll find out next week.

    General Commentthis song is so great. i vaguely remember when someone filmed this live awhile back and someone took a stab at the lyrics they had "oh jillian i can, i can feel you like the wind" and to me that still sounds more correct than "oh damn it i can, i can feel you like the wind"

    General Commentshe leaps higher than the scale
    and then falls like iron
    like screaming air right down in front of me

    i dont know how it came to this
    i am so scarred up with cigarettes
    cigarettes and leaps

    but i know i'll always stay possessed
    like some creature to a crucifix
    if you drive your nails into me

    sitting on the floor in a pile
    trading my arms for some wings unharmed
    i am god damned
    been blown from the edge
    and i can now barely stand
    oh jillian i can, i can feel you like the wind

    the beatings our rotation brings
    has us betting down on anything
    but as our shrinking lives collide and ring
    the sound is beautiful in ???

    but never i planned to live like this
    empty thoughts, a rolling kiss
    oh i never plan on anything

    sitting on the floor with a smile
    it'll tear it apart, like a dog in the yard
    you are a godsend
    been blown from the edge
    and i can now barely
    oh jillian i can, i can feel you like the wind

    i fear its getting close to the end
    i can feel it in the warm ailing
    she said, i dont want to think about that
    cause i'm married to imaginery friends
    so come on, come on in
