lyrics

My hopes sink like a stone
into the truth I had known lay beneath the unknown,
as I watch you float on
and way out beyond what you’ve clearly outgrown.

I stalk the streets that had bled
every dream from the life I had previously led,
as you unfurl on beds,
where threads come easily undone by the easily misled;

but that love’s so cheap and easy, Briony.

So, crawl around, and let them lead you to the water,
where you can drink and follow orders like a good whore.

Now the love I have missed
has been washed down the drain with semen and piss,
as the stench on your lips
betrays the vile intentions that bloom from your kiss;

it works wonders for your dignity, Bryony.

So let’s crown your ambition’s certain failure
with grapes of thorn that slowly sour, when no one’s at your door.
As you crawl around and let them lead you to the water,
where you can drink and follow orders like a good whore.

So fuck, fuck away all that bile and self-pity,
until your hollow shell’s a worthless sell at the ripe age of 19.
I used to envy those who would one day become me,
but I know these words will follow you in a language they can’t read.

So let burn beneath the eyes of a salt pillar
that wretched heart waxing bitter, locked in your dresser drawer,
as you crawl around, and have them lead you to the water,
where you can drink and follow orders like a good whore.
