lyrics

How do you understand failure?
Is it a place you can go, or is it in you?
How do you feel about lovers?
Is that charming embrace
a safe place?

Turning something to nothing
is the loneliest thing
played to the beat of two wings
clapping together
Turning something to nothing
makes the ugliest mess
played out by two empty vests
fucking in collars

How do you cope with devastation?
Do you dress it up, or does it dress you?
Does it rest on your back, or in the corners of your eyes?
Does it bleed you?
Does it wear you down?

Turning something to nothing
is the loneliest thing
played to the beat of two wings
clapping together
Turning something to nothing
builds the ugliest scene
It’s such a heartless thing
to do
