lyrics

mentality climbs despite the physical slide
hung from the S-line splitting the left from the right
dead center, so dead
clever at hiding the signs
nine quadrants combine
harness the tides of the spine

cut me with your mouth scissors
no seat at the table?
you may be for dinner
little left to give you, but I'm a giver
so you can eat my liver

touch my lips, I flinch.
the way out isn't always out
isn't even in
but it might be down

no one knows how truly scared you are
I do

no one knows how truly weird you are
I don't

no one knows how you could fall so far
it's my fault

stupid sweet
naive as me
you take this course
and I do nothing to prevent you.
