lyrics

well it starts in a ballroom
all the jokers slide across a bar
we step outside for a smoke
what a drag, and the fog blends with the sky

if its real, if it's always
a turning, pulsing hallway through your chest
a look inside, what a lie
just a boy, and two decades will just misrepresent

i'm over all i know
i'm over all i don't know
i'm over all i know
and all i've left behind

count it up in a classroom
as numbers shift and shout across a page
i'm too gone to stay in my mind collapse
and the ringing drums and strings take me away

i'm over all i know
i'm over all i don't know
i'm over all i know
and all i've left behind

well i had a dream that you died
you walked through a door into white light
and i didn't want you to go yet
but now i would know what it would feel like
there's nothing more real life
than the dream eye i saw through last night

here we are in a bedroom
you tuck your bottom lip under your teeth
and start to bleed
and the warmth rushes from your face and into me
