So this is how it ends
Toxic and deliberate
She's blood red at the neck
Boiling off fingerprints
This hospital love is making death seem elegant
"Just don't breathe and we'll stop time"
She said...
"I got this delicate lisp
that speaks in tongues and upper lips"
Your silhouettes my favorite...
I'm not letting go of it...
She's got a leash that grips my teeth
That cleans the air I breathe and,
It's wrapped around this city...
You look so lovely running through my fingers
running through my fingers
Where everything's always felt right
You look so lovely running through my fingers
running through my fingers
Where everything's always felt right
So she glides off the bed
With unflinching relevance
and completely motionless...
You're so heavy, You're so warm
Just a pillow I; ve used a thousand times before
Wrapped in velvet
And Filled with thorns
I've got this weakening grop around her arms
Around her hips
Your silhouette's my favorite
I'm not letting go of it...
I'm not letting go of it...
She's got a leash that grips my teeth
That cleans the air I breathe and,
It's wrapped around this city...
You look so lovely running through my fingers
running through my fingers
Where everything's always felt right
You look so lovely running through my fingers
running through my fingers
Where everything's always felt right
And I will chase it
Grab it
Stake it
And rub until she fakes it
We all boom faster
And oncoming disaster
And I will let this hurt
You look so lovely running through my fingers
running through my fingers
Where everything's always felt right
You look so lovely...
You look so lovely..

    General CommentNick Torres is a genius, check this out:

    i've got this delicate lisp
    that speaks in tongues and upper-lips
    your silhouettes my favorite
    im not letting go of it...
    im not letting go of it...
    -------------------------------------------
    ive got this weakening grip
    around her arm, around her hips
    her silhouettes my favorite
    im not letting go of it
    im not letting go of it

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, it's a bit too catchy though. I've had it stuck in my head for a week

    however it's not "Sounds bitter of it (?)" it's actually "This hospital love is making death seem elegant"

    General CommentThe intro riff seems to remind me so much of another song's intro, but I just can't think the song. I think it's more of a pop-ish one.. anyone else think that, or am I just crazy?
