lyrics

I was one hundred degrees from right
when obtuse I branded onto your arms
the marks appropriate to you and I entwined
the angles our bodies took left our impressions signed
so ill-defined we lay
and I could not say what I mean

I tried to build a house around you and me where words were deed
and comfort was plenty
when it fell the walls from inside they sagged I watched them collapse
and drenched them in benzene
razing the empty
where reason left me

we were many miles ahead of ourselves
when we said it'd run so easily
for us to understand the working of a life
to distract from demons through the course of every night

I tried to build a house around you and me where words were deed
and comfort was plenty
when it fell the walls from inside they sagged I watched them collapse
and drenched them in benzene
razing the empty
where reason left me
