Eloise

Album: Say Anything (2009)
  • Laid out, puking in the back of a fancy bar
    You and your friend in the front booth
    Laughing at my sweet naïveté
    And its awkward gravity

    Three years, I saw the decimation of the world in you
    Messiah complex lead a fickle flu
    To see it's antidote and end in you
    But now I'm gonna leave you

    Eloise, Eloise
    You never meant that much to me
    Baby, please let go, my Eloise
    Let it bleed, let it freeze and fall apart in front of me
    My Eloise, you took the world from me

    So beautiful, the ugliness within you
    Last of three, baby of the family
    Spoiled to bits and rotten to the shining core you
    And mad with power I've seen corrupt
    The leaders of a nation
    Stricken with the sickly imitation of a love
    The Lord would never stitch
    You've got my cake. It's time to dine on the rich

    Eloise, Eloise
    You never meant that much to me
    Baby, please let go, my Eloise
    Let it bleed, let it freeze and fall apart in front of me
    My Eloise

    Band-Aid. Just a bloody Band-Aid.
    That's all I ever really was to you, Eloise:
    (You can't take when you gave it away.)
    Just a solider with a syndrome and dreams of children's screams
    You molded. You shaped like a god who loathes to create
    (You can't take when you never want to give it away.)
    Band-Aids. Two infected Band-Aids.
    That's all we were to each other, Eloise
    (You can't take it away.)
    Just a couple of stupid kids throwing a ball back and forth
    Just to see who drops it first
    (So now I feel like a child again.)
    Well, think fast, killer.

    Eloise, Eloise
    You never meant that much to me
    Baby, please let go, my Eloise
    Let it bleed, let it freeze and fall apart in front of me
    My Eloise, you took the world from me
    You took the world from me
    You took the world from me
    You took the world from me
    You took the world from me Writer/s: MAXIM BEMIS
