Sunrise, wake up, stand up look into red eyes.
Stayed up all night thinking of,
Reasons why I can't feel your skin.
Is this plaguing your brain?
Is this plaguing your brain?

Couldn't brace yourself in the morphine hallway.
Lying on the ground with a heart as a ball and chain.
Message to the bird I know your wings will be fine.
Spread them on the floor, learn to heal with take time.

(Close the hatch,)
Now breathe in wide,
(Come on and lock us inside.)
I will forgive you later.
(Close the hatch,)
No, come it's time,
(Come on and lock us inside.)
Just stand aside.

I'm always late tonight,
I am reaching wide.
I am sticking to all of your liars,
And all this means,
And all I have to say.

Stay till I run away
Cause I, I can send you to the side.

Cut off these ties,
Till this is why
We were holding to one night.
Breathe in without love,
Hear me form this line.
Fall out of love,
I don't believe you now!

Watch this turn to dust.
I won't know when you've fallen!
(No! wrong!)
Now it all takes shape.
I won't go until you follow!
(No! wrong!)

Couldn't brace yourself in the morphine hallway.
Lying on the ground with a heart as a ball and chain.
Message to the bird I know your wings will be fine.
Spread them on the floor, learn to heal with take time.

I don't even get the movie.
Cold ice feels so soothing.
I don't even get the movie.
Cold ice feels so soothing.

Watch this turn to dust.
I won't know when you've fallen!
(No! wrong!)
Now it all takes shape.
I won't go until you follow!
(No! wrong!)

I don't feel anything, stuck in the passing lane!
I don't feel anything, stuck in the passing lane!
Break, wait, stop, back off the bitch!
Break, wait, stop, back off the bitch!
Break, wait, stop, back off the bitch!
Break, wait, stop, back off the bitch!

Block out the sound of the police beckoning.
Duck in the back and the lights will shut off again.
You can go for it just don't ignore it.
Ration the wine, laughing in revelry.
You can go for it just don't ignore it.
Caution I'm drugged, well here comes the symphony.

Here goes the rapist, the rapist.
I said the rapist,
The rapist, the rapist.
I don't know the rapist,
The rapist, the rapist.
You should know the rapist,
The rapist would hide!

    General Commentthe missing bit is...
    all these reasons why
    i am reaching wide
    i am sticking to all these one liners
    and all this means
    and all i have to say

    (whispers)
    stay till my word
    because i can send you to the side

    Cut off these ties
    till this is why
    we were holding to one night
    breath in without love
    hear me form these lines
    falling in love
    i have been reading lies.
