Track Ten.

lyrics

I touched each square to my tongue, I'm not sure what I want,
Though I cannot wait for this static color to be gone.
The pale white I see when I was up gets covered one inch at a time,
it's okay, we have all the time in the World, I can tell by the watch on my
wrist, I wouldn't wind it if I could stop missing out on all these random segments of time.

Hold your breath, this won't take that long.
I know, we're all anxious but it's not in our control,
take a drink, you should try and calm yourself down.
We're so eager but the thread is through and I cannot wait any longer.

This paper took so much more time than I thought I had,
and I can't say that I'm not mad, but I don't care enough about it.
When the stamps are all finally up, there won't be a space that's not covered,
and it almost feels like a murder of the walls inside my room.
I twist inside my skin every time that I hear your voice (because I'm pretty sure that you're poison).

The only reason I pretended to be asleep was so I wouldn't notice any of the Frost or the Fever.
The only reason I was so prone to making myself so tense, was only to find the difference.

It's 60 in January and you haven't been outside all day
because you're pretty sure that the Sun would burn away every trite, cheap word you say.

Hold your breath, this won't take that long.
I know, we're all anxious but it's not in our control,
take a drink, you should try and calm yourself down.
We're so eager but the thread is through and I cannot wait any longer.
