lyrics

There’s always an issue
whenever I’ve made a breakthrough
A subtle attack…
You’re holding me back yet supporting me into the longview
These insecurities are killing you and poisoning me
Therein lies the irony!
They’ve only strengthened our symmetry

I’d like to think I’m more than a glutton for your punishment
Thankfully, your love for me is the best encouragement

I don’t need to believe it
when I can clearly perceive it
Oh, who has time to hope for the sure things?
I don’t need to embrace it
when I can always engrave it
Oh, who really has time to play with heartstrings?

Assume the best, hope for the worst
Flying high while I’m submerged
It’s all so oxymoronic
Enter my demonic bucolic
We trade blows but don’t move an inch
when did our words become our fists
Such a lovely disaster
ignoring the present, living for the hereafter

There’s always an issue
right after the one we’ve just been through
No lessons learnt, just bridges burnt
We must love the chaos that ensues
Stubbornness and pride will likely forge my own demise
So why am I surprised?

I don’t need to believe it
when I can clearly perceive it
Oh, who has time to hope for the sure things?
I don’t need to embrace it
when I can always engrave it
Oh, who really has time to play with heartstrings?


Circular…
Sick and tubercular
A dream that never recurs…
A pleasure that always hurts…

Circular…
Sick and tubercular
A dream that never recurs…
A gift that somehow turned out cursed

All these things lead me to think
for every queen of hearts, there’s a headless king.
