Looking through an old book of letters to a former love These words are all the same seems not much has really changed These lies are all the same I take to drink to drown the shame Still apologizing for all the same damn things Still apologizing but I've not learned a thing I haven't grown just gotten older I'm none the wiser My story's played out my bed grown colder I'm None the wiser When will I When will I When will I learn Conviction lifted you've been absolved The blame has shifted and I take the fall Conviction lifted I've been absolved The blame has shifted and you take the fall We haven't grown just gotten older We're none the wiser Our story's played out our bed grown colder We're none the wiser

Jersey wasn't so hard to leave once I drank her out of my system But the scar she cut disproportionately resembles something missing I dig these tunnels back to you Dig these tunnels back to you Dig these tunnels back to you Dig these tunnels back to you And I've been underground far longer than I was ever in her light So long I can't remember if she ever smiled for me or was I caught up in the season of her deceiving I dig these tunnels back to you Dig these tunnels back to you Dig these tunnels back to you Dig these tunnels back to you

I feel too much or not enough Try to exorcise the ghost but get caught in the cusp While the boys are all screaming "Give it up! Give it up!" the blank page stares back silent Seems I've lost myself in dream I pull the thread from splitting seam pray to see Pick the wound a hope to bleed but nothing Calling on darkness to pull me out of here I don't need no holy man No I don't need no hold man Black Madonna Black Madonna are you near Seems I've lost myself in dream I pull the thread from splitting seam pray to see Pick the wound and hope to bleed but nothing

"Come to New York for the weekend" she says she'll buy you a ticket and find you a bed While you feel yourself drifting into those blue eyed pleas again Maybe this time she'll see you Maybe this time she'll let you in Well I'm just the girl who used to be for friend Begged you for just one kiss so I could feel again Yeah I'm just the girl who begged for a broken heart so I could sing again Please help me sing again Remember Peru? You'd just kissed a girl and goddamn she couldn't stand to lose Bashful eyed Tone subdued She had you She knew she had you She knew she had you Maybe this time she'll see you Maybe this time she'll follow through Well there you go getting weak in the knees again Maybe this time she'll let you in Maybe this time she'll see you And I'm just the girl who begged for a broken heart so I could sing again Please help me sing again Well I ain't a pretty girl And I ain't no mystery You've held You've held every part of me so I'm bound to lose I'm bound to lose I'm bound to lose Cause love don't last for the broken And this is what I wanted So really I should thank you

Thank you, love, for another song Thank you, dear, for this aching heart Pain it is our bread and silence is our biggest fear Let's break it now break it down and turn it up Feel this weight as I come crashing, crashing down Your lies escape while I listen for their sound Is there a song in all of this you've been pushing me to write All the melodies eluded me until you spoke those words tonight Thank you, love, for another song Thank you, dear, for this aching heart Pain it is our bread and silence is our biggest fear Let's break it now break it down and turn it up Well this ain't no drama, baby so stop worrying about what people say it's just a song we sing And we bore it from our love and built it from our tears Don't let it go Don't let it go Thank you, love, for another song Thank you, dear, for this aching heart Pain it is our bread and silence is our biggest fear Let's break it now break it down and turn it up

Drop the needle Scratch this itch Drown out the whole world and reminisce Bitter poison Bitter poison So sweet So sweet Your sadness on my walls Your sadness on my walls reminding me So sweet So sweet Rush comes your soul coursing through my veins unfolding unfolding Bitter poison Bitter poison So sweet So sweet Your sadness on my walls Your sadness on my walls reminding me So sweet So sweet I hear these songs through your ears I sing these words in your tongue I weigh this void on your scales until what's left is just the sum I'm just the sum of your roots I'm just the sum of your roots I'm just the sum of your roots I am all that's left of you
