Lyrics (as they appear on the 7”):

(part one)
i want to be the breath collapsing your lungs, and i want to be the mercury poisoning your blood. i want to be the glass shredding your skin and the guilt collapsing your chest, these are your second chances and everything came up black. we medicated our desperation while you filled my lungs with hopelessness, not all of our failures were accidents everyone should have seen this coming, we simply can not save everything.

(part two)
i finally woke with my life in pieces and you woke in the arms of a failure

we were screaming in our sleep it was an avalanche of uncertainty, an epidemic of beauty one we ran head first into.
i want to be the one whose arms you long to fall into and i will make this all up to you, just know i am willing to risk it all
our lives were on fire (we’ll float above it all) and we have never felt so alive

(found on last fm.)
