The Core

Back




Your body is a ghost town
Ground fog climbing up your skin
You can’t feel anything
You can’t feel anything else
Hostile

Your head is a crowded nest
Lice crawling over your face
You can’t see anything
You can’t see anything else
Misted glass

Oh you got a reckless mind
High speed
Eyes closed in the middle of the road
You can’t hear anything
You can’t hear anything else
There’s just that hum

Oh you got a vicious heart
Feign love
Fade away like rain at night
You can’t trust anything
You can’t trust anything else
But distance

Everyone everyone can see you choke
When the world is out of focus
And like a growth you conceived it
I’m serious I do not understand how this keeps happening

You wish you’d be shaking like you used to
But your core is so still
You wish you’d be shaking like you used to (mmmh)
You wish you’d be shaking like you used to
But your core oooh
Another darkness to live through
