Teary eyes and bloody lips
Make you look like Stevie Nicks
We never knew that being cruel was such a cool thing to do...

We used to laugh until we crashed our bikes
The moon was nothing but a rock in the sky
While all the kids in all the clubs were falling off of all the walls

But now,
We can surrender up the city
We can pretend that it’s a movie
We can embrace the blindness
That comes with embracing the night
We can embrace the blindness
That comes with embracing the night

We thought our darlings would recognize
The smell of our skin
And I’m sorry for the way that that turned out
You looked so beautiful then,
And you look so beautiful now

It is the fork in the river
It is the break down the middle of the mirror
It is the parting of the suicide doors
That we come to understand:
When we float in the water
It’s not the absence of the other
But the absence of anyone else
That will drown us in the end
