Hollow Suit

lyrics

I was winding down a river
Painting diamonds on a sea-like wheel
With the lonely clouds
I know your lost in the fragile lantern's gleam

I wanted to, but you won't believe
That you were first to let them see
Hardened surrounding forms
Where went the lights in your echoed stare?

Lone star
Low and behold
All these lies and nowhere to go
Except to the scene where I pushed you away
In a dream that I had
In a dream I want back

You're a crooked masterpiece
And I'm reading your face
On fire in the walls of an unmapped place
And you're never quite sane
When you're looking at me
I still have so many questions
That it's cracking my teeth

And you're watching me try
At the top of the stairs
To swallow the thought of being lost in your hair
I feel no more to you
Than filling for a hollow suit
A character imagined never to speak or move

Low stars
Low and behold
All these lies and nowhere to go
Except to the scene where I pushed you away
In a dream that I had
In a dream I want back

There's a lot you do but don't say
