Lyrics & Info

Performances (146)

So much space can fit in a sigh 
More than words can say 
I'm left here standing with my hands all awkward 
Trying to mend space 
I used to know you 
But not anymore 
Your substance has been subtracted 
Word by word

Silence in my ears, where once you offered your conviction 
Your promises are dry beads that crack with nostalgia 
But that's alright, that's okay 
Never shoulda given myself to you anyway 
Never trust your pink, fleshy heart 
Never trust your pink, fleshy heart 
To a carnivore 
To a carnivore

Your soul is an inkstain 
Your perfection is amend 
And you're as fragile as your thoughtlessness 
But you're as strong as you can bend 
You could only believe in embryos 
So you held all your high hopes through a telescope 
Lavender haunted you so I could 
Only laugh in yellow 
Yes, you have a genius for subtlety 
I slip through the fingers of your ambiguity

But that's alright, that's okay 
Never shoulda given myself to you anyway 
Never trust your pink, fleshy heart 
Never trust your pink, fleshy heart 
To a carnivore

And I don't know what I did 
But I won't do it again, this time I'll be my own best friend 
And I take back my songs and my poetry 
And next time I won't be so easy to read 
And I'll never trust my pink, fleshy no 
Never trust my pink, fleshy heart, no 
Never trust my pink, fleshy heart 
To a carnivore 
To a carnivore 
To a carnivore

“I’d forgotten I’d changed the bridge over time into this low, mellow little-red-riding hook spooky bridge and I didn’t realize there was ever another bridge over time. My fans on Twitter reminded me to go back to the original bridge on it. I was sent a bootleg of it and now it’s more dynamic. My fans speak up a lot. They really wanted “Carnivore” on the album.” Picking Up the Pieces Press Release
