  • Nobody's coming down the hall
    Nobody echoes in my head
    Broken reflection out of luck
    Nobody ever needed her

    I got what was
    I want to take what's left
    For the deaf

    Beautiful senses are gone
    Canary in a gilded cage
    Singin

    Sweet, soft, and low
    I will poison you all
    Come closer, racing to your turn

    I got what was
    I want to take what's left
    No talk will cure
    What's lost, or save what's left
    For the deaf

    The blind can go get fucked
    Lie beside the ditch
    This halo round my neck
    Has torn out every stitch

    Who are you hiding
    Is it safe for the deaf
    Beautiful cancer
    Infiltrate and forget
    And I saw you coming
    And I heard not a thing
    A mistake not to listen
    When I knew where you'd been

    And I got what was
    I want to take what's left
    No talk will cure
    What's lost, or save what's left
