about

One of the few songs I preferred to leave acoustic after writing. Each track only required one take all the way through, so that's cool.

lyrics

Shes a stone statuette
The cracks down her body wont get out of my head
The weather wears away what she used to be
She was a wonder of the world, but now the marble's color's fading

Her features faded from the wind and rain
a twisted smile on her lips from pain
but the artist only chiseled out, what she's like on the outside, even though the insides cracking too

She lies awake, wishing for an ending
I'm losing sleep wishing I could do anything
She's taking heavy hits in more way than one
To blur the lines between whats real and what she wants

Every bone in my body's snapped
Under a weight to make my lungs collapse
but if I could I'd take the stones off her press
and let them smash my empty chest

Cuz she's as pure as the sea
but still she feels as low as the Mariana trench
So take the kill, make it clean
as if this feeling could be anymore intense

She lies awake, wishing for an ending
I'm losing sleep wishing I could do anything
She's taking heavy hits in more way than one
To blur the lines between whats real and what she wants

She isn't looking for a happy ever after
Cuz if she disappeared its not like it would even matter

I lie awake, wishing for an ending
She's losing sleep wishing she could do anything
I'm taking heavy hits in more way than one
To blur the lines between whats real and what I want
