Track Name: The Better To Eat You WIth
The Better to Eat You With.

Cold winds carry me, softly whispering
screaming: I WISH I WAS THE CREATURE FLOATING IN YOUR ARMS
ABOVE AND BELOW
The sea tells me to breath inhaling salt in my lungs and I'm feeling collapse
ABOVE AND BELOW
It's not the safety in these bones that I'd rely on
It's impatience that fed me, it was Desire who drowned me
saying "oh life you're not so precious."

I never thought so clear so I held into your skies,
with the promise that, that the past is the past and it'd never hold a moment, no, it'd never take a second
like the nights taking breaths from taking my
it was selfish

We came as children painting crooked teeth,
even though we saw, we weren't proud

Exhaling promises fathers never kept
and it's been years since I've strangled these veins
saying I had better change

but it's past and my pasts are slowly creeping up
and they are telling me to sink
taking my last farewells,
"oh dear, I was never doing well, I was never doing well, ABOVE AND BELOW.."

Nightfall in the hospital
we stitch my heart to the seams in my sternum
I swear to god, it got so hard to breath,
I imagined myself fighting Hope as she slowly felt the seams
we kept crossing out cities, Hoping I would never change

NIGHTFALL IN THE HOSPITAL
they stitch my heart to my sternum and
it slowly falls apart
and I swear to god,
I'll tear the stitchings from these seams
I swear to god,
"I would never change, I would never change, oh I love this world, oh I love this world..."

What part of my insides were willing to part
Which part of my silence would prove to be hope we'd wake up okay
