I don't need your eyes
the truth is that's a lie
your cancer kills my open scars
you're killing me don't ever hold back
I want anything but everyone
you always burn my lungs

You're too occupied with the sound of drowning
Your heartbeats nothing but velvet
I'm filling your head with the sound of drowning
I don't think your lungs and mine have ever met

Every hour I crack another broken rib
I never knew I had
your breath sounds so sweet when its bleeding
my throat won't feel the screaming from a sore
it felt like poison
you've never failed me yet

You're too occupied with the sound of drowning
Your heartbeats nothing but velvet
I'm filling your head with the sound of drowning
I don't think your lungs and mine have ever met

You're too occupied with the sound of drowning
Your heartbeats nothing but velvet
I'm filling your head with the sound of drowning
I don't think your lungs and mine have ever met
