lyrics

The feelings may not form sentences;
emotions have a way of feeling paper thin.
The words always escape the cage they’re in,
it might take some time.
The tell is in the rosebud blood vessels,
cheeks will not stay silent, nor will throats forever.
Holding back my tongue won't resolve the pressure,
it’s got to give some time
I’ve been trying to break the silence for a minute now,
I feel like I’m surrounded by the
moment and the consequence of holding it in,
holding it in, holding it in, holding everything in.
I’m going to break sometime.

So let me speak my mind
at least let me try.
Let me speak my mind,
at least let me try.
My nerves are wearing down to the thinnest wire,
you only hear me out when I am preaching to the choir.

The current in my body is a hurricane,
storming over tributaries of my veins.
We only ever talk drunk and stuttering,
if I inhale then we’ll be equal;
exhale, maybe I’ll believe you.

I’m barely holding my stresses in,
darling I’ve got a confession:
We only ever connect by cutting through the friction.
You never return the favor of patience.
It’s coming clear to me lately;
all that I ever give you is grace to pacify the fiction.

I’ve been trying to break the silence for a minute now,
I feel like I’m surrounded by the
moment and the consequence of holding it in,
holding it in, holding everything in.
I’m going to break sometime.
