I’ve got this sinking feeling
That now that our eyes are capital letters, the arctic surge won’t make it better
Your father burned the house down years ago
And your mother’s still smiling in the ashes, swearing nothing happened
Oh, God knows what brought us here
I know our love is engineered and we’re too far gone to try to steer
So God knows how many years
Til we disappear, til our worst fears quit whispering in our ears

So you would spend the whole night
Yeah, you would spend the whole night
Yeah, you would spend the whole night
But you would never sleep, you would never sleep
So you would spend the whole night,
Yeah, you would spend the whole night
But you would never sleep, yeah you would never sleep, you would never sleep

Whatever’s running through our veins
What’s got us swerving through the lanes
Can’t save you from the screams when you come home, when you come home
But the chemicals in your purse
Have brought our bodies closer
And we forgot when morning comes, we’ll be alone, we’ll be alone

Oh, it’s not strong enough, it’s not strong enough
It’s never strong enough, is it?
Our blood was never strong enough for this shit
For the ghosts that keep our tired eyes open
We were never strong enough for this shit

So you would spend the whole night
Yeah, you would spend the whole night
Yeah, you would spend the whole night
But you would never sleep, you would never sleep
So you would spend the whole night
Yeah, you would spend the whole night
But you would never sleep, yeah, you would never sleep
Yeah, you would never sleep, yeah, you would never sleep

Whatever’s running through our veins
What’s got us swerving through the lanes
Can’t save you from the screams when you come home, when you come home
But the chemicals in your purse
Have brought our bodies closer
And we forgot when morning comes, we’ll be alone, we’ll be alone

Alone, we’ll be alone

So we drowned that sinking feeling
Yeah, we made do, we always seem to
But when you come down
Yeah, whenever you come down
It’ll be there
Waiting for you
