lyrics

Run your mouth, you silly girl
Set loose your childlike calls
Did you think these things would just disappear
The shadows hang them from the walls

Crocodile tears taste the best
Your tongue is bitter as the sea
Did you think you’d float beside
The waves the rising tide
A pretty dress to ferry you down

You're doomed to drown

Blooming wrists, restless lips
You wear your pity as a crown
Did you think these things would just disappear
They’ll weigh your ankles down

Strings of pearls from your fingertips
Descend to porcelain graves
Did you think you’d float beside
The waves the rising tide
A pretty dress to ferry you down

You're doomed to drown

Ferry me, restless lips
Away from waves of crimson fear
Ferry me, restless lips
Away from waves of crimson fear

You're doomed to drown
