lyrics

my existence has been altered and bled by grief
i would heal if i'm alive but instead i...

i was already gone before the song that you're hearing came on
when you came along departure had already been drawn
steady prolonged
existence is so heavy and long
you're getting me wrong
my killer was so pretty and blonde
she was a bomb in my chest
ticking quickly in stress
if it were less i'd've never been so nearly impressed
i dearly digress
it's better never near me so let's disconnect
or my death will be infectin' you next

my existence has been altered and bled by grief
i would heal if i'm alive but instead i bleed
i have mourned myself and i am being led by sleep
if you stay then i'll believe that you're dead like me

is it enough to justify my dying by love
by trying so much
my writhing flesh fighting for touch
you're trying your luck
your blood is drying dryer than rust
you don't wanna stay
i'm tellin' you what the fuck's up
i've first and foremost
been cursed to pour notes
i'm already dead
evaporate into ghost
so if you wish to slip and die
please stand by my side and be dead like me

my existence has been altered and bled by grief
i would heal if i'm alive but instead i bleed
i have mourned myself and i am being led by sleep
if you stay then i'll believe that you're dead like me

no matter what
from the blood on my hands you will believe
that i'm fucked
and i trust that you will want me to leave
i'll haunt you in sleep
i'll give you things i want you to keep
i'm not what you think
the ghost you think is me is a leak
in the fabric of space
her majesty raped
the tragedy shapes
and drastically scrapes
and lastly this fate's been strapped to my soul
if you move too close i'm never letting you go

i was never meant to fall in love this way
can't you see that what you're holding is my remains

you can't feel me
i'm not real these
words are nearly
disappearing
i died trying
keep on fighting
soon you might be
dead just like me
