And then there was one
With a sharpened grin
A home I was never meant to find
The wound was exposed and I fell in
A curse I was blessed with as a child
I spent my life waiting for this
I knew I even bore the mark around my wrist
And I feel like this could be enough
And I feel like this could be the one, this could be the one

Raise your palms to me
And let me show you where our lines collide
Graze the scalp and see
And show me where you think they placed that tracking device
It's so contagious
You can't escape from me, you can't run
They're hot on your trail
They’re hunting you down for a lock of your hair
And they shot you on the space between your wings
They tied your limbs and made you sing
What makes you so evasive?
You won’t escape from me
We've lost communication
These words will dissipate
I've scoured through this wasteland
You are a mystery
And I caught you right before you fled

If I could breathe in your air
Then I’d believe what you said
If I could see what you see
Then I would never have left

I picked apart all the clues that I found
I stood out, I stood out for you to show yourself
I picked apart all the clues that I found
I stood out, I stood out for you to show yourself
We can forget everything we've become
It's not far, it's not far until the oxygen
We can forget everything we've become
It's not far, it's not far…
Show me what's in store
Locked beneath trap doors

For every plot unrevealed
You counted my scars and made me sing
Every note, every secret forced me back into lucidity
And you proved to us, you proved to me

If I could breathe in your air
Then I’d believe what you said
If I could see what you see
Then I would never have left

Suffer the distance between
We'll douse our words in kerosene
Suffer, leave something for me
We'll burn them all until we make this true
We'll burn them all until we make this true
I'll clip my wings and give it all to you
I'll clip my wings and give it all to you.
