Black Heart Inertia

  • Walking alone tonight
    'Cause I've only got room for two.
    Me and my burdened black heart,
    It's all we know how to do.

    Yet I look for a bigger bang
    Than the kind I continually see.
    Sick of all this inertia,
    Oh, won't you mend me?

    Lover, can you help me?
    I'm a child lost in the woods.
    A black heart pollutes me
    And I think

    You're a mountain that I'd like to climb,
    Not to conquer, but to share in the view.

    Pulled by a false inertia,
    Pushed out by circumstance.
    Pistol firing at my feet
    That's coercing me to dance.

    Yet I look for a bigger bang
    Than the kind I'm sorry to know.
    Here I am, first foot of the climb.
    Watch me go.

    Lover, can you help me?
    I'm a child lost in the woods.
    A lit path eludes me
    And I think

    You're a mountain that I'd like to climb,
    Not to conquer, but to share in the view.
    You're a bonfire and I'm gathered 'round you.
    Set this old black heart inertia aflame.
    Send it away
    Send it away
    Send it away
    Send it away
    Send it away
    Send it away
    Send it away
    Send it away

    You're a mountain that I'd like to climb,
    Not to conquer, but to share in the view.
    You're a bonfire and I'm gathered 'round you.
    Set this old black heart inertia aflame.

    Set it aflame, send it away
    Set it aflame, send it away
    Set it aflame, send it away
    Set it aflame, send it away
    Set it aflame, send it away
    Set it aflame, send it away Writer/s: Benjamin Lee Kenney, Brandon Charles Boyd, Christopher E Kilmore, Jose Anthony Ii Pasillas, Michael Aaron Einziger
