Sleeping with the phone
Pressed up against your lips
Just to control it
We need this morphine drip
But deep inside the drip you will
Find our lost intentions
Begging to break this silence
We’ve been trying so
Desperately to grip

Believe in me now
As you sleep,
And no one is around,
It craves our imperfection
And debility of mind, yeah
Believe in me now
How can I move on?
This ghost of Apollo
Lives still haunting me

Dreaming has left me but a fraction
Of a nights worth of sleep
At four or five when I arise
I grab a pen, take a seat
So deep inside our heads where I
Have planned to pick apart
Hoping to find the resolution hiding here,
This hollowness of ours

I’m a liar, yeah
A God-damn good one
When it comes to this
I'm God-damn good
When it comes to this

I’m a hider, yeah
I’ll do what it takes
I will resist
