I was born a ghost
An apparition
Filled with holes
and contradiction

And I fear I'm the only one
So I wake early
watch the leaves quake
and the first light braze the trees
I hide myself in a secret place
Here I know my heart
I know it's careless
But, darling, you seem like you're fearless and
maybe you're my perfect fix

My conscience is
My conscience is an avalanche
majestic
bewildering
and wholly careless

I live with the tides
I live in reverence
and know the days are endless, endless
But, darling, you seem like you're anxious

My conscience is
My conscience is an avalanche
majestic
bewildering
and wholly careless
Crooked lust
Crooked lust

My conscience is
My conscience is an avalanche
majestic
bewildering
and wholly careless
Crooked lust
Crooked lust

    Lyric Correctioni'm not sure if this is correct, but i think that instead of:

    majestic, bewildering, and holy and careless

    it is:

    majestic, bewildering, and wholly careless.
