July 2015.

lyrics

I've got two fingers to my chin and my thumb outstretched
I'm staring into the face of death
Got two fingers to my temple and my thumb points to the sky
You know I make it seem like I want to die

But I'm going to be left
Once everyone has killed themselves and all my friends are dead
I'm going to be here
With nobody to talk to and nobody to hold dear
Nobody to hold dear, nobody to hold dear

In the egg whites of your eyes I see two things:
One is the pain you hide
And two's the reflection of my face
It's such a lovely day

And in the bedside table drawer, I know I shouldn't know about
Your solace in the bitter cold, a way in which to have control but
You won't let others know

I've got two fingers to my chin and my thumb outstretched
I'd love to get to know you better but I wouldn't want to leave you bereft
Got two fingers to my temple and my thumb points to the sky
But I don't plan anytime soon on not being alive

I'm going to survive
Even after everyone has killed themselves, after they've died
I'm going to go on
But every day I'll think about those who are gone
Those who are gone, those who are gone

In the egg whites of your eyes I saw two things:
One was the emptiness
And two was the cold caress of
It's such an ugly day

But you were dripping blood out of your eye sockets
You told me that it was fine and that you just needed to cry
So I went and got the Kleenex and I held you and I said it was alright
