Lyrics

Choking slowly, broken hearted
Don’t look now, here’s what you started
I swore I’d be there til the end
We’re bitter now but better friends
I climbed out limbless to the the ledge
To bask in my last true regret

Lay my heavy head here down to sleep
And I pray to Abraxas my soul to keep
Lay my heavy head here down to dream
Wake up with this lead poisoning (awaken to the blood and sweat and screams)

Sobbing softly, lost and hollow
This fever dream, tough pill to swallow
I swore I’d be there ‘til the end
You’re better off, your bitterness
I climbed out lifeless to the edge
I waved goodbye and lept, I…

Woke up here on Monday morning
This old street on this dark corner
Waiting here for what tomorrow brings
Silverlake, mercury mining
This mistake, no silver lining
Waiting for a bullet train to bring
Me my lead poisoning
