You live in a cave, one made of drapes
A hint of perfume from your personal maid
Whose scrubs make her arms look too big for her frame
For the life of me I can't remember her name
Refraining to speak, except to myself
And mostly it's prayers to keep in good health

You'll never die

I live in a thought, one that's homemade
While my physical body's turning in my grave
My spirit's working on building a new brain
But it doesn't know how
I reach my arm across the bed and hold your hand
The angel of state can't wait to seize all your land

But you'll never die

You weren't there when I needed you
I watched you going under

You'll never die

    General CommentTrevor, the songwriter, told me it's about his grandma dying, how he was really close with her, and being in denial that she was actually going, which is the reason for all of the "you'll never die" repetition and desperation in the song.

    the spirit building a new brain is likely a reference to ephesians 4:23/romans 12:2, i believe.

    My InterpretationFirst, these are how I hear the lyrics. The album comes out tomorrow, so maybe there will be official lyrics then. I'm certain that some of this ("whose scrubs make her arms look too big for her frame") is correct, other parts ("the spirit's fucking a dull deep in your brain") it's mostly just that it sounds approximately right, or closer than what's posted.

    As I understand, it's a song about watching a loved one die, the little comforts and significant moments and the feelings of helplessness, depression, and anger.

    You live in a cave, one made of drapes
    Your hint of perfume from your personal maid
    Whose scrubs make her arms look too big for her frame
    For the life of me I can't remember her name
    I'm fronting to speak, accept myself
    And most use prayers to keep in good health

    You'll never die, You'll never die, You'll never die

    I'm giving a thought, one that's foremade
    While my physical body's turning in my grave
    The spirit's fucking a dull deep in your brain
    But it doesn't know how
    I reach my arm across the bed and hold your hand
    The angel of state can't wait to seize all your land, but

    You'll never die, You'll never die, You'll never die

    You weren't there
    When I needed
    You aloft
    You pull me under

    You'll never die, You'll never die, You'll never die

    General CommentOfficial lyrics, from Trevor Powers on Facebook:

    You live in a cave, one made of drapes. A hint of perfume from your personal maid, whose scrubs make her arms look too big for her frame. For the life of me I can't remember her name. Refraining to speak, except to myself, and mostly its prayers to keep in good health. You'll never die.

    I live in a thought, one that's homemade, while my physical body's turning in my grave. My spirit's working on building a new brain, but it doesn't know how. I reach my arm across the bed and hold your hand. The angel of state can't wait to seize all your land. But you'll never die. You weren't there when I needed you. I watched you going under. You'll never die.
