If you walk to the edge I’m out of reach
2.
Take shelter underneath her hands wrapped in white paper I sank all my emotions before I disappeared I'm a landslide, I'm a landslide, I'm a rage I'll stare out the distortion So I can see clearer I'll break through all the lightning And float in the ether I'm a landslide, I'm a landslide, I'm a rage
3.
Do you see everything? How? Do you see everything? How? Talking to myself now You know it makes more sense I found nothing helps Well you promised me That I’d never be the same It’s a slow embrace But I’ve never been afraid Do you feel everything? How? Do you feel anything now? It's all irrelevant now I can stare out the sun I found nothing helps Well you promised me That I’d never be the same It’s a slow embrace But I’ve never been afraid

The Moth 03:24
Sucked right through the vacuum of this plasmid-layered carnival Open-ended backseat laced, tremorring rapes the metronome This fractured brain shattering everywhere slowly (away) Caught beneath the entrails of your black lung breathing the hex's toll Concubine endorphins making my breathing rhetorical Coagulate in numbness as your brain precedes the wrecking ball Orchestrate the madness in the amputation of your soul This fractured brain shattering everywhere slowly (away)

I was born as a camera I was born with a mouthful of stars I was born as a photograph I was born with my mouth full of scars
7.
Congratulations you have won again My rhythm of vision burns your head A soft touch in your heart Where the debris meets the sea We will take her bones at midnight Commiserations I have won, my friend My rhythm of vision circles your head I just wish you never knew Collect the prize for the few We will take her bones at midnight

It’s a long way down from here What you say, take it back Burn it down: The discothèque Tremor-shaped amnesiac Neon skies: The heart attack Suffer, suffer. It’s what you wanted Crawling through your fingers
10.
What do you do when I disappear? And will our lost youth be recaptured? Throw a net over your loves' lost fading soul Intravenous injection, alone blood-drenched snow I'll tear you new eye holes So you can see in the way that you wanted The smile on your face I drank up the ocean But the salt dried my mind And when I died I confessed It felt alright
