lyrics

"That doesn't look too good.
Let me show you what you should wear.
In the meantime here's a comb,
why don't you run it through your unmanageable
curly red hair?"

I'd like to be the stitch
holding tight every inch
of cloth that drapes
from our skin.

If I come undid,
you'll roll me up
between your finger and you thumb
until you've finally had enough and
toss me to the ground.

Then you brought me that new t-shirt
with far fewer holes.
Said it looked real clean.
You said I smelt like
a foreign factory.

Is that what you like?

These things aren't mine
they only help define
what you can't find,
you can't read
on my jawline.

We always thought that we'd be the ones to stop this.
We always thought that we would explode on impact,
but it's better to anticipate than partake.
I know.

So we just wait.
We wait for it all.
