lyrics

don't you recognize me?
i'm the tangible scream
have you come for relief?
you will never be free
of me

i smeared my mouth with lipstick
so when you reach in to pluck out my words
your hands will be stained

i'll crack my teeth on your bones
a sacrifice of marrow for soul

my body is a cinder
set amongst the cold debris
a flint to spark the wisdom
of a weathered pedigree
the blackthorn grows within you
brambled branches free of leaves
i'll set us both ablaze
a swirling, golden filigree

don't you recognize me?
i'm the tangible scream
have you come for relief?
you will never be free
of me

my body is a cinder
set amongst the cold debris
a flint to spark the wisdom
of a weathered pedigree
the blackthorn grows within you
brambled branches free of leaves
i'll set us both ablaze
a swirling, golden filigree
