lyrics

walking through the spaces you once occupied
like an apparition seeking contrition, you pass through me to hide
you left yourself scattered in pieces on the bricks
but now the blueprint's gone, i'm prostrate on the lawn with sidewalks to fix

but i never really knew
which parts of the book were false and which were true
caught myself splitting into two
but i stopped it all before giving the best half to you

glancing at the vestiges of what once was
like holy water, my tears are fodder for turning the past to dust
sitting in the boiler room waiting for the rust
but i see rising flames, i don't know who to blame and i don't know who to trust

and i never really knew
which parts of the book were false and which were true
caught myself splitting into two
but i stopped it all before giving the best half to you
