lyrics

live within an argument
or blinded by entitlement
I’ve grown so thin
it hangs over my head
it wrings around my neck
oh it lets no light in
I stutter at the starting line
I’m not convinced this voice is mine
or just the wind
as it’s claiming back these wasted notes
I have to find where no one goes
no one goes
drag me towards
heaven and gemini

the dead skin oh how it hangs on us
I’m not convinced a new soul won’t supplant my own
will I prove to be an empty vessel, living nightmare,
or at best will never know?
what have I done here to deserve,
when others try and lose the nerve when forced to choose?
a struggle with time I can’t afford
a choice that all others ignored
all abhorred
drag me towards
heaven and gemini

the frozen figures in the sky you'll gaze upon
death throes eternally locked
your face was frozen in shock
this bleeding edge which now you rest your head upon
proves to exist you first must suffer

the skin around my eyes is painted black
a thin disguise, oh I let no one in
when the blood within your mind is now the only thing alive
where do you expect me to begin?
I’m reaching for your arms and legs
although my grasp is weak it begs to use your skin
if you let me learn to love again
and hold my head up high again
my love for you will never end
heaven and gemini

you will never know
I may never know
who’s meant this broken heart?
combined, more than the sum of our parts

I will never know
you may never know
was this destined from the start?
these twins eternal, no one shall part
