lyrics

Prescription Snow

We cannot live like we’re pretending with certain things we both should know
But each scene always seemed so perfect under the cover of a prescription snow

So give your veins all that they can handle until some beauty comes along
But if it’s an ending that you’re seeking then it’s a coffin sized to the soil’s hole

I can live like a fish in a fountain
I can find some walls to roam
But if each kiss is burning more than I am growing
I cannot tell, then I can’t tell you, I cannot tell you what you want to know

It’s an addiction of the worst kind, trying to love what will grow old
And fade away just like the sunshine to shed it’s light on other worlds

So don’t tell me sugar ain’t my birthright, I wanna taste the candied soul
And go back to when we sang till dawn’s light swinging youth’s side of that double-edged sword

But what if I blink and I light the candle at both ends
Would you be the first to go
And if each kiss is burning more than I am growing
I cannot tell, then I can’t tell you, I cannot tell you what you want to know
