you're a diamond that I'm afraid to touch
you're damn near flawless
and I'm sure you'd cut
all my eyes my hands my head my heart
you'd tear this canvas skin apart
oh what a waste of human art that'd be

you're a dungeon but you're made of glass
and prisoners that've no idea they're trapped
cause it looks so beautiful inside
it makes us feel like we're alive
but lord well knows we'll never survive your woes

didn't you know that all along
you didn't need to hear your song
and if you don't know that
then you might as well be dead

medusa's child preserved her former looks
she kept her out of all the storybooks
just to get back at all of the men
who had tried time and time again
to claim the right of her demise and end

a million years go by and you're still around
you're knocking us off of our feet, you're knocking us down
but we still can't leave you alone
the way you move one would be prone
to want to be turned into stone

didn't you know that all along
you didn't need to hear your song
and if you don't know that
then you might as well be dead

you make me feel so alive but it's consequence
I want to be dead
was it how you arrived?
I can't tell
or was it in the way you left
us
here

didn't you know that all along
you didn't need to hear your song
and if you don't know that
then you might as well be dead

didn't you know that all along
you didn't need to hear your song
and if you don't know that
then you might as well be dead
