Let it Lie – lyrics

Baked in the sun that was raised on the hip of the skyline
Wars have been won with blazers and lips to the spine
I keep calling for fate from the back of this cosmic bar
While you still have faith in the path of the one true star

I catch bullets with my bare hands
You catch snowflakes on your tongue
We’ll meet in the middle
Where the lessons all come from

We’ll bow our heads
And shoot one last look at the sky
It’s awful red
Where the storm went by
Take this thread
And pull the clouds over our eyes
It’s all been said
So let it lie

I fall harder every time
Bloody knees and iodine
Broken hearts and broken bones aside

Siphoned and still on the ground that we held to our ears
Tired and filled with the sound and the spell of our years
I was looking for praise on the soles of my own two feet
You have your ways and your coals and your concrete

I’m all about the hit and run
You are the crossing guard
We’ll meet in the middle
Armed with axels and tar

We’ll bow our heads
And shoot one last look at the sky
It’s awful red
Where the storm went by
Take this thread
And pull the clouds over our eyes
It’s all been said
So let it lie

I am the one that will knock you out
I am the one that will leave a mark
I keep slamming on the brakes
It’s that kind of quick mistake
That sends a body through the glass
When the world starts to spin again

We’ll bow our heads
And shoot one last look at the sky
It’s awful red
Where the storm went by
Take this thread
And pull the clouds over our eyes
It’s all been said
So let it lie
