  • I'm a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
    And the scars that mark my body, they're silver and gold
    My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones
    It keeps my veins hot, the fires find a home in me
    I move through town, I'm quiet like a fire
    And my necklace is of rope, I tie it and untie it

    And our people talk to me, but nothing ever hits
    So people talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes
    I'm going in (ooh)

    This is the start of how it all ever ends
    They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
    I'm speeding up and this is the
    Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
    We rip the start, the colors disappear
    I never watch the stars there's so much down here
    So I just try to keep up with them
    Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

    I dream all year, but they're not the same kinds
    And the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time

    And now people talk to me I'm slipping out of reach now
    People talk to me, and all their faces blur
    But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison
    And I'm locking up everyone that ever laid a finger on me
    I'm going in (ooh)

    This is the start of how it all ever ends
    They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
    I'm speeding up and this is the
    Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
    We rip the start, the colors disappear
    I never watch the stars there's so much down here
    So I just try to keep up with them
    Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

    And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat
    Sparking up my heart
    And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat-beat-beat-beat Writer/s: ELLA MARIJA LA YELICH O'CONNOR, JOEL LITTLE
