  • Make my bed in droughts of beryl
    I haven't shot this thing in years
    Do you think I'll fold?

    Calloused hands of detriment
    From a crossbow flinch of gasping air
    Do you think I'll

    So long, don't fall apart
    The words have made a perfect burden

    Sewn along your hollow heart
    We'll never hassle you

    Remember at the hips where we once joined
    Severed by the scalpel when we were young
    Do you think I'll fold?

    Held under the water in a blacklist trough
    Buried in the plots of your front steps
    Do you think I'll fold?

    Incinerate the faith that you were taught
    Incinerate your crown of useless flesh
    Do you think I'll

    So long, don't fall apart
    The words have made a perfect burden

    Sewn along your hollow heart
    We'll never hassle you

    And if this life belonged to me
    You can stop the rain from falling

    Tie it on in your mind
    Its your noctourniquet

    And in your fight to live and breathe
    Then you keep it to the night

    Tie it on in your mind
    Its your noctourniquet

    Made my bed in droughts of beryl
    I haven't shot this thing in years
    Do you think I'll fold?

    Your color seems to flower from your hissing tongue
    Your livery of siblings cut from saffron cloth
    Do you think I'll fold?

    I'll reach out through the pavement with the shortest straw
    Lavera, don't play in your mother's drawer
    Do you think I'll fold?

    Come hasten to the first drop of endless flasks
    Heretics and peasants with a quench forboding
    Do you think I'll

    So long, don't fall apart
    The words have made a perfect burden

    Sewn along your hollow heart
    We'll never hassle you

    So long, don't fall apart
    The words have made a perfect burden

    Sewn along your hollow heart
    Whatever one takes, whatever one takes for you Writer/s: CEDRIC BIXLER, OMAR RODRIGUEZ
