Black and Blue

Fading everything to black & blue
You look a lot like you’d shatter
In the blink of an eye
But you keep sailing right on through
Every time you say you’re learning
You just look a lot like me
Pale under the blistering sky
White & red black & blue

You’ve been waiting a long time
To fall down on your knees
Cut your hands
Cut yourself until you bleed
But fall asleep next to me

Wait for everyone to go away
And in a dimly lit room
Where you got nothing to hide
Say your goodbyes
Tell yourself we’ll read a note that says,
“I’m sorry everyone.
I’m tired of feeling nothing. Goodbye.”
Wash your face dry your eyes

Cause you’ve been waiting a long time
To fall down on your knees
Cut your hands
Cut yourself until you bleed
But fall asleep next to me
And have a dream
I’m falling down on my face
I scrape my knees
I scrape my hands until they bleed
Cause you’re fast asleep next to me
