"A Charm / A Blade" as written by and Matthew Houck....
Give me ten long limbs, I’ll hold
Lazy rolling things of gold
Dress me down in a New York crowd
Lay me down an bawl me out

Tell me everything’s been sold
Tell me everything. I’ll go
Pressed apart those skins still hold
This can’t be what you want
This can’t be what you want

There’s a charm, there’s a blade
There’s a lot in the way
There’s a child, there’s a grave
There’s a lot in the way
There’s a colt, there’s a cane
There’s a lot in the way
There’s a heart, there’s a chain
There’s a lot in the way

Cut my heart but do it fast
We don’t want that hurt to last
Take that violence from your brow
Shake it down and hold it out

Tell me anything’s my home
Tell me anything. I’ll go
Pressed apart those skins still hold
This can’t be what you want
It can’t be what you want

There’s a charm, there’s a blade
There’s a lot in the way
There’s a heart, there’s a grave
There’s a lot in the way
There’s a colt, there’s a cane
There’s a lot in the way
There’s a child, there’s a chain
There’s a lot in the way

There’s a mark, there’s a stain
There’s a lot in the way
There’s a phone, there’s a flame
There’s a lot in the way
There’s a fawn, there’s a fang
There’s a child in the rain
There’s a charm, there’s a blade
There’s a lot in the way

    My OpinionNot sure who submitted this garbage, but here are the actual lyrics from his website.

    Give me ten long limbs, I’ll hold
    Lazy rolling things of gold
    Dress me down in a New York crowd
    Lay me down an bawl me out

    Tell me everything’s been sold
    Tell me everything. I’ll go
    Pressed apart those skins still hold
    This can’t be what you want, hej
    This can’t be what you want

    There’s a charm, there’s a blade
    There’s a lot in the way
    There’s a child, there’s a grave
    There’s a lot in the way
    There’s a colt, there’s a cane
    There’s a lot in the way
    There’s a heart, there’s a chain
    There’s a lot in the way

    Hej cut my heart but do it fast
    We don’t want that hurt to last
    Take that violence from your brow
    Shake it down and hold it out

    Tell me anything’s my home
    Tell me anything. I’ll go
    Pressed apart those skins still hold
    This can’t be what you want
    Hej, it can’t be what you want

    There’s a charm, there’s a blade
    There’s a lot in the way
    There’s a heart, there’s a grave
    There’s a lot in the way
    There’s a colt, there’s a cane
    There’s a lot in the way
    There’s a child, there’s a chain
    There’s a lot in the way

    There’s a mark, there’s a stain
    There’s a lot in the way
    There’s a phone, there’s a flame
    There’s a lot in the way
    There’s a fawn, there’s a fang
    There’s a child in the rain
    There’s a charm, there’s a blade
    There’s a lot in the way
