Say that you’re on your way, the lonely road
Traveling the miles to bring us to
The highest ground we ever placed our feet on
And for a moment our balance sustained on rigid water
Who can stop us now?


I pray to be of little faith cause even though the palms of his hands bare scars
I change my name to Thomas if it would keep me from repeating the same mistakes
And all the while two angels counsel on top of my shoulders
Both sides convincing me, his good grace repeating:


“Revealing the skin won’t keep you safe from facing these consequences that you’ve made”


(You should)
Save your tongue, our silence is always awkward
We’re better off with little words barely ever spoken
I won’t say that I’m weak, but we’re not as strong as we once thought


We’ll just begin where we left off
(Exchanging forms of loneliness to fulfill our own desires)
We should find a way to make our bodies less enticing
(To stay away from contact would change my perception of an accomplishment)


Keep your eyes closed when you’re on your knees
Pray that his blood is still thick enough to soak us up
Even though our hands are inspired by the most beautiful on
I still know what’s in store when the sun burns itself out again


(You Should)
Save your tongue, our silence is always awkward
We’re better off with little words barely ever spoken
I won’t say that I’m weak


What’s kept us close (what’s kept us close)
She pretended to love (she pretended to love)
While it slowly consumes all aspects of my life


Now I’ll see this through, when will I ever learn
To put my soul before what my body thinks it needs to know


It’s just the way we carry ourselves
