and i'm here and i'm special and i'm the one who turns you out. and i'm here and i'm a wreck for the total loss of our last crash. you are the savior you are the woman bleeding me. you're the stigmata that i starve for and i pray the lord i keep, the sign that keeps reminding me. and i move too close, when heat embodies me. and i stop to call beating hearts i ring. and i assume too much like breathing when i sleep. may not be innocent, may not carry you on the way. may not be innocent, you'll walk the miracle mile with me. and i soothe the warmth that keeps in time with me, and i assume you know it keeps time with me. and we consumer it all and breed like gods last men and i assume you know i'll see you when i wake. and i see the right direction got miles to go with miles to go with miles around. and i see the time is right for, the time is yours, the time is now.

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song on False Cathedrals. It perfectly describes me. It's when you feel unique and you accept everything you've done ("may not be innocent") , and how you want someone to mirror that. It's about finding someone who knows you, which I obviously haven't yet, but it's a beautiful song and I'm completely in love with it.

    General Commentthis song is so different from their usual work. its more rock-oriented and has a couple of riffs and styles i never thought elliott would use. great song though, especially the first couple of lines.
