about

This song in four words: Girl isn't vibing. LAME.

lyrics

Catalyst words slip from her mouth.
Ideas battle concepts spitting up doubt.
Casual shrugs shot to the side,
Tailoring our compliments
in pauses we hide.
Calendar nouns replacing our thoughts,
Lingering verbs remind us
of what we're not.

She said yes,
as her knees point to go.
Oh, veiled in cement,
intentions don't show.

Coma induced with my head on the wall.
Sheets strangle my sleep away, replaying it all.
It's back and it's forth, unwilling to stop.
Immune to diplomacy, as I tap out, I'm shot.
I wanted a nod.
I wanted a smile.
What I got was not satisfactory,
now I'm steeping in denial.
Give me a word that's perfectly clear.
Slice through my sinews and bones,
embed it for me to hear.

Oh, oh.

She said yes,
as her knees point to go.
Oh, veiled in cement,
intentions don't show.

Intentions don't show. x 4

She said yes,
as her knees point to go.
Oh, veiled in cement,
intentions don't show.
