Dear Miss White
Oh, damn this night
Wouldn't believe how much it snows
In the summer heat
With red iron feet
You'll be nursing a bloody nose

Princess Wrecked
We'll talk in our sleep
But I wouldn't dare to sit too close
I can't be your Prince
Though your secrets are safe
I am the mirror that can't let go

With hair as black as night
Her skin, it is that perfect white
And the red on the bathroom wall

With every breath
And every intake
Tip-toe further away
Further away from his mistakes
I'm no savior; I'm no saint, saint
It's not what you needed anyway
All the cold that you've caught
The bones that you brought
The blood that you've lost
You built your body in the coffin where you sleep

Let this apartment breathe
'Cause its what it needs
I'm suffocating the clock to keep you
I think like a saint
But swing like a thief
And inadvertently leading you
To leave on your wits
And go in your bedroom with hits
Take the red from your eyes
And ink it into your skin
Now watch what you say
Because there's nothing gray
About the color of your skin

With hair as black as night
Her skin, it is that pearly white
And the red on the bathroom wall

With every breath
And every intake
Tip-toe further away
Further away from his mistakes
I'm no savior; I'm no saint, saint
It's not what you needed anyway
All the cold that you've caught
The bones that you brought
The blood that you've lost
You built your body in the coffin where you sleep

With every breath
And every intake
Tip-toe further away
You're bleeding, your bloodshot
Tired mistake
I'm no savior; I'm no saint, saint
You need to see the pieces you've thrown away
All the cold that you've caught
The bones that you brought
The blood that you've lost
Keep your body and the hell away from me

    " plan to keep you ? ? like a thief And inadvertently leaving you"

    I think it says "swing like a snake and sway like a thief" My two cents.

    And I just realized he says "With every breath and every intake"

    amazing song/band. it seems to me like it's def a drug reference. maybe about some girl they know that's into it. And i think he says "All the cold that you caught, all the blow that you bought." but i could be totally off. And I kinda hear "Her skin a 10 perfect white."

    Actually, I think he says "Her skin a dead pearly white." and I think he says "Take the red from your eyes, and ink it into your skin."

    I could be wrong, but i'm catching a very vague cocaine reference in this song.

    I also hear...

    "All the ? that you caught The blow that you bought"
