Lyrics

she don't dream
the way she used to dream
before her body condemned itself
to feel like an empty building

one day she'll discover that
the habits that she covet
only smother the hopes
that her heart will change

she broke her teeth
on an unsheathed piece
of hard tasting candy

she closes her eyes at night
she can hear the calvary go by
she can taste his tongue in her mouth
and his tears sting like disease

she don't ever see what should be seen till the thing that should be seen is outta sight
she don't ever see what should be seen till the thing that should be seen is outta sight
she don't ever see what should be seen till the thing that should be seen is outta sight
she don't ever see what should be seen till the thing that should be seen is gone

and her fingers burn
when she folds them to pray
that her hunt for love ain't cold
like the holes in her duvet
she ain't too certain that her psyche can take
another season of hunters pretending to spare their pray (she prays)

and her brains froze black
and her eyes rolled back
and her steps shellacked
she don't know what she's becoming
and her brains froze black
and her tongue rolled back
and her heart shellacked
she don't know what she's becoming
she don't know what she's becoming

she don't dream
the way she used to dream
before her body condemned itself
to feel like an empty building

one day she'll discover that
the habits that she covet
only smother the hopes
that her heart will change

she broke her teeth on
an unsheathed piece
of hard tasting candy

she closes her eyes at night
she can hear the years she lost go by
she can taste his tongue in her mouth
and his tears sting like deceit
(deceit, the sea)

and her brains froze black
and her eyes rolled back
and her steps shellacked
she don't know what she's becoming
and her brains froze black
and her tongue rolled back
and her heart shellacked
she don't know what she's becoming
she don't know what she's becoming
she don't know what she's becoming
