I’m only here to give what you won’t take I’m only here to say the words I didn't want to say But if I could raise a chance, a ghost, maybe then you’ll learn to follow I’m only here to take what you don’t need The tiny little part of you you never thought you’d be But if we could raise a chance, a ghost, maybe then I’ll learn to follow I’m frozen like a satellite that’s drifted from the sun But I've still got a “fuck you” for all the cheaters that kept on handing out their love And my brother used to live his life with adventure on his tongue Well I’m inclined to trace his footsteps, swear I’ll learn from every one And I’ve seen... And now I know... No Ghosts

Feast like the wolves, taste on the blood Innocent armor, a mannequin love Autographed and framed up on the wall Reads, “a little bits left of me, use it up, take all you need” A match in a glass jar struggling to breathe This feels like a battle I’ll never win (We can face our fears tonight) But you can feel the soldiers starting up again (We can face our fears tonight) And we shook like the guns of war, but do you know what you’re shaking for? We mapped the coast, we lined the throats, we’re set to burn it down This is all we’ll ever want, this all we’ll ever need Do you remember, oh, you were young Chemical ballads on natural tongues A lighthouse hiding panic in the dark Oh, I might be a little lost, but what does it matter when measuring the cost? A mood ring echo in your heart Wait... Just wait till the morning... We’ll sink your heart like a stone

Painted roses on you, Juliet Wine glasses on the floor Why can’t I sleep with you in the next room? Leave them wanting more Why try? White Lie (She said) Buy me wings to fly Build my reflection in your monolithic light Smoke in the air but you cut right through Crystallized shapes leading back to you I can’t take the pressure, I can't take the pressure But I think you've got it in you Static dances on your tv set Visions block the door Why can’t I keep you out of her bedroom? Waistlines on the floor

Can I get a little bit of closure? I don’t want to sit here on the border Of where I’m supposed to be, and what’s staring back at me So I move myself, drown in the river Where I found the will to move through the weather And it’s all I need, cause it set me free So stay away from me, away from me I’ll douse my heart in kerosene, I’ll light the flame so you can see me So stay away from me, away from me I've given all I have to give and it’s gone away They say time, time, time, why do you torture me? I've lived twenty god damn years, and not a single one counts for anything Maybe it’s too much of something we don’t really need But if you feel it in your blood, who’s to say it shouldn't bleed? And I swear that I can’t tell a lie So I’ll wear my burdens like a thorn in my side You can burn me shut like an amputee Fall to the ground singing “no one could love me” This has grown; it’s too much to take My dreams look better than my life awake

If I was a satellite, you were the city Nocturnal intelligence, you were the spark that built a forest fire And I know we won’t be long And I know you can’t be right But I don’t feel your void No I don’t feel your void I don’t feel you Come on, you can’t be scrounging out for me I need your conversation quietly I need the weight I feel inside of me Need you to dissolve But I don’t need you If you were my satellite, if you were the weight outside I know I was wrong, I didn't mean to send you home If you were the weight outside, if you were the sun at night I know I was wrong, I never meant to send you home I never meant to send you home

The light strains to find a bright that could match the gleam of your eye The struggle remains in mine to turn away Here we lay in the sand, the palm trees above block the sun, grasp your hand The current cascading its waves to the land We dream of contact I start to speak, but my words get curbed the breath Because my faulty tongue can’t twist word enough in this broken dialect I’ll stand up to the world, alone I’ll make my stride Cause I know we’re in this together Your hand was meant for mine The burn on your wrist means more than you know It fights back the ghosts of my past, they point and they laugh at every step I take But they’re not in this room, and I shudder to think Of something as strong as the empathy, cause nothing means more to me Than a night alone with you When I look at my hands, all I see is a mess A fist with a grudge attached to it, to every knuckle pressed I’ll stand up to the world, alone I’ll make my stride Cause I know we’re in this together Your hand was meant for mine
