lyrics

I had some unsuspecting eyes even when I begged and pleaded.
You could have asked me just to lie, instead you closed your legs remaining seated.
And you'd ask me
And then you'd pry

Would it kill you to do more than walk me around town
Would it drain all your blood to ride a train to me to
hear me in your head and in hair
to hear me touch your skin and nudge your fears.
And so I killed
No I didn't kill.
And so I killed.
No, I didn't kill.

So listen to my prophecy, all your fears fearlessly heighten.
Eyes widen like a child's, the fool gathers round and listens.
"What if they listen"
"What if they hear."

So they tune to the speech of the wounded and the hurt
and then we hold our hands together and ask the universe
for someone guiltier to burn
as we pile the participants into grecian urns.

So we killed.
I didn't kill.
So they killed.
I didn't kill.

All this teaches me is how to swallow more

And they'll never know about the self inspired book
or how to tie their throats and limbs so no one sees the
fear as they smell all the burning wood
or why we run and scream to call out for a flood.
So I killed.
And so I killed.
And so I killed and killed and killed and killed and killed.
I don't want to kill anymore.
