lyrics

I am standing on the paths of kings
of all the brave & sovereign beings
maybe I'm not ready yet
to step a dance I can't forget
my lips are blue against your face
here's the cue to take our place

I am the girl in death-defying acts
stoically taking down pieces of past
my ribs claw through my skin
waiting for us to come in

this is my state but it's not mine
I've been caged & dulled with time
one day I'll learn to write my name
some day I'll be able to carry the blame
my own words are harder to find
that's how I'm sure they're mine

I am the girl in death-defying acts
stoically taking down pieces of past
my ribs claw through my skin
waiting for us to come in

you look at me
like I'm a pagan shrine
& you're the Vatican
I can't see

I am the girl in death-defying acts
stoically taking down pieces of past
my ribs claw through my skin
waiting for us to come in
