He had torn the stitches out before my heavy eyes
Could blink in punishments that I failed to keep disguised
My words would bring the end of everyone I've ever loved
But I won't keep them in and I'll never have enough
Oh, enough, oh

But I still dream of children that I'll never have, they'll punish me
I mark myself so permanent and I'll never have to fear
The God my mother does and I won't be home for long
But you can visit me and pray He'll keep you strong

Nobody's asking you for a fight
I couldn't stop you if I tried
'Cause my cage is open, words unspoken
The fury speaking into me
They will haunt you, I will hunt you
'Cause I don't want you to be free

But I've been crawling under every shadow that they tell me to
But I don't see the sympathies, the fates
There's only you to keep my body up and my feet stuck on the ground
I'll never lift them up, I'm just grateful to be bound

Nobody's asking you for a fight
I couldn't stop you if I tried
'Cause my cage is open, words unspoken
The fury speaking into me
They will haunt you, I will hunt you
'Cause I don't want you to be free, oh

Black-hearted flowers for my black-eyed love
Black-hearted flowers for my black-eyed love
Black-hearted flowers for my black-eyed love
Black-hearted flowers for my black-eyed love
Black-hearted flowers for my black-eyed love
Black-hearted flowers for my black-eyed love
Black-hearted flowers for my black-eyed love
Black-hearted flowers for my black-eyed love

Nobody's asking you for a fight
Well, I couldn't stop you even if I tried
'Cause my cage is open, words unspoken
The furies used to speak to me
They will haunt you and I will hunt you
Because I don't love you anymore, oh
