A non-album single in advance of full-length LP, Lead (coming fall 2016)

lyrics

I'm going to stand on stage
and peel my skin away.
Oh--you're still hiding underneath
all of these bloody, brittle sheets--
I'm going to do it anyways.

I made a hole of my body,
I made a show of my bed.

I'm going to run from you
when faced with any truth.
I can only make sense of it
when I have put some distance in
I know this is what cowards do.

My heart is nothing until I write it down
I dip my pen into the blood where it is found.
Roses and embers, I spill them to the ground.
I'm painting pictures of my lovers in the sound.

No, you were never mine.
But, I don't pay that no mind.
I'd let you touch me until I die
so I can keep setting your name in rhyme.
I'll sing it out so melancholy, oh, give me all of your pity.

My heart is nothing until I write it down.
I dip my pen into the blood where it is found.
Roses and embers, I spill them to the ground.
I'm painting pictures of my lovers in the sound.

How cruel am I, darling?
How cruel am I?

My heart is nothing until I write it down.
I dip my pen into the blood where it is found.
Roses and embers, I spill them to the ground.
I'm painting pictures of my lovers in the sound.

I made a hole of my body,
I made a show of my bed.
