Dear Ms. White,

Put down this night
You wouldn't believe how much it snows
In the summer heat with red iron feet
You'll be nursing a bloody nose

Princess, rest
We talk in our sleep
But wouldn't dare to sit too close
I can't be your prince
Though your secrets are safe
I am the mirror who can't let go

With hair as black as night
Her skin, a dead, pearly white
And the blood, red on the bathroom wall

With every breath and every intake
Tip-toe further away
Further away from this mistake
I'm no savior, I'm no saint, saint
(That's not what you needed anyway)
All the cold that you caught
The bones that you bought
The blood that you've lost
You built your body
In the coffin where you sleep

Let this apartment breathe
'Cause it's 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 believe I'm your prince
Adorn your bedroom with hints
Take the red from your eyes
And ink it into your skin
Now watch what you say
'Cause there's nothing grey
About the color of your sin

With hair as black as night
Her skin, a dead, pearly white
And the blood, red on the bathroom wall

With every breath and every intake
Tip-toe further away
Further away from this mistake
I'm no savior, I'm no saint, saint
(That's not what you needed anyway)
All the cold that you caught
The bones that you bought
The blood that you've lost
You built your body
In the coffin where you sleep

A fix
Just a little bit
Give the girl enough to sleep through this
So stop staring at the mirror
Before it tells you the truth
Cooperate or it'll kill you, too

With every breath and every intake
Tip-toe further away
You're bleeding, you're 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 caught
The bones that you bought
The blood that you've lost
Keep your body
Get the hell away

From,
Me

    General Comment" 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.

    General Commentamazing 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."

    General CommentActually, 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."

    General CommentI 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"

    General CommentDear 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 sin

    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

    Lyrics for "Mirrors"
    Dear Miss White,

    Put down this night. You wouldn’t believe how much it Snows in the summer heat. With red iron feet, you’ll be nursing a bloody nose. Princess, rest. 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 who can’t let go.
    With hair as Black as night, her skin, a dead, pearly White, and blood red, on the bathroom wall…
    With every breath and every intake, tip toe further away. You breathing and bloodshot, tired mistake. I’m no savior. I’m no saint. That’s not what you needed anyway. All the cold that you caught, the bones that you’ve bought, the blood that you’ve lost…you built your body in the coffin where you sleep.
    Let this apartment breath, ‘cause it’s 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 believe I’m your prince, adorn your bedroom with hints. Take the Red from you’re eyes and ink it into your skin. Now watch what you say, ‘cause there’s nothing Gray, about the color of your sin.
    A fix. Just a little bit. Give the girl enough to sleep through this.
    So, stop staring at the mirror before it tells you the truth. Operate or it’ll kill you too.
    With every breath and every intake, tip toe further away. You breathing and bloodshot, tired mistake. I’m no savior. I’m no saint. You need to see the pieces you’ve thrown away. All the cold that you caught, the bones that you’ve bought, the blood that you’ve lost…keep your body get the hell away…
