Lights Out

lyrics

Today of all days
She becomes a child
And senses that she forgot
Will grow to be normal
The hot air will freeze just like it does
When winter comes
A piece of meat, she seems so sweet
It will drive him wild

She'll walk alone, as she walks home
Cause she's familiar with the city
And with the light on
She can be so safe
With the light on
She she can feel okay
With a light on...
She still won't see him come around

It's scenic
Post light on post light on
He who sees you now
She's too far gone
Post light on, post light on
Darker in her head
She craves nothing
And in the bath,
She catches her breath
She finds
Comfort in her own death
And a body
Is a canvas
If you cover it in paints that will ebb

The cold
Is in her skin, is on her lips
A forced feeling of emptiness
Radiates from her hips
And she lies
Blank and numb
She lies
Nude and young
She lies
Now, to herself

He shoved words into her mouth
Telling her how to feel
She didn't know if she had screamed
Cause none of it was real, was it?
But bruises
Make her look like art
That's what he said
When he tore her apart
And with the light on,
She can see
The tattered landscape

It's scenic
Post light on,
Post light on
He who sees you now
She's too far gone
Post light on
Post light on
Darker in your head
She craves nothing
And in the bath,
She catches her breath
She finds
Comfort in her own death
And a body
Is a canvas
If you cover it in paints that will ebb
That will ebb
