Quilt

lyrics

Patches of kindred jeans, yet my genes are so contradicting. What's shown on the surface is ever so charming, it covers us completely. Filibuster these abominable acts so I can prolong the illusion that we are still happy and everything's fine.

As the years go by this quilt starts to wither and fade. Holes tear through and I can see what hides beneath the sewn charade. I see the heart on your sleeve and it won't stop bleeding. This shield no longer gives me that same safe feeling.

Everyone's got their own shit going on. Normality is just a myth. I looked between the lines and it says "do not read".

Don't tell me you don't see what I see. As if I weren't tense enough.

How many more secrets are you keeping away from me? Welcome me back, an apparent trap to have me witness your misdoings. I want to explode in the sky like fireworks on the 4th of July. Too concerned about my past and future, but the present's a gift I should be more content with.

As the years go by this quilt starts to wither and fade. Holes tear through and I can see what hides beneath the sewn charade. I see the heart on your sleeve and it won't stop bleeding. This shield no longer gives me that same safe feeling.
