lyrics

give all the boys a prize to set their eyes upon
there's danger hidden in freckles that constellate my firmament
can't you see the thorns protruding through translucent milky flesh?
i am not your empty spectre
i'm the wind coursing over the skyline

put this collar on my neck and i'll tear it off
with claws like saws that cut through the fabric of your insecurity
try to gain my sympathy and i'll spit and you and scoff
i'll brush away your existence like floaters in my periphery

kneeling down, you lap up my ashes from the concrete
hope to catch your gaze through the haze of cigarette smoke
but i choke out your words before your first bow is drawn
i'll never be the holy vision you conceived of me in fever dreams

put this collar on my neck and i'll tear it off
with claws like saws that cut through the fabric of your insecurity
try to gain my sympathy and i'll spit and you and scoff
i'll brush away your existence like floaters in my periphery

sip on this golden chalice
crooked pupils gaze upon you
watch your visage as you search for meaning in the dregs
but all that remains is a facsimile of my desire
goes down sweet but the aftertaste is sour
reminds you of your first sip of whiskey as a teen
burned your throat, you swore off the stuff
til you kept coming back for a second pour
but i put the bottle right back on the shelf
saved the last drop all for myself
all for myself
all for myself
