lyrics

Carry your crosses
from some divine
sixes and sevens
to your afterlife.
We've been trying to
sink our claws into you.
Kingdoms bound and bruised.
We're built in twos.

Where do you want to go?
My chariot can't hold the weight.
Break the skin
into my veins
and swim before I sink.
You always show yourself in threes
before you melt to me.
Break the skin
Into my veins
and swim before I sink.

Nobody sins here.
Nobody minds.
We've recreated
an afterlife.
We've been trying to
sink our teeth in you.
A house decaying slow
into ruins.

I'll sink. I'll drown. Where bridges stood, I burned them down.
I"ll float, nearly convinced that my name stole space on that list.
When I have arrived I hear everyone's name but mine.
I am dying to carry your crosses.
I am dying to be what you wanted.
