about

The second single off Chess at Breakfast's upcoming debut album.

lyrics

Please, not now.
I’ll let you know when I’m ready to talk about
what’s gold and what’s not gold
I think you may have creased a smile.
you’re not like you and nothing makes sense,
at least not when it takes two to dance
It’s still likely that I’ll wait, but with bias, berate you until I can’t

This isn’t me—
Fighting against what you mishear is “rightfully bliss”
It takes all my air
and though I’m not a flyer,
I suggest we go higher than this

With wounded wings, you step back from me
Take me as your paper crane.
I’ll construct however you’d like,
you can put me over the pyre
But, Keeper, don’t light me on fire

Now I can see while you sink your hips, your ribs are starting to wear,
And I can see as you clinch your fists, your wrists are staring to tear

Maybe we just love to corrupt
If we don’t wanna settle down in the middle of a
Magma crust about to erupt
if we don’t wanna settle down

This isn’t me—
Fighting against what you mishear is “rightfully bliss”
It takes all my air
and though I’m not a flyer,
I suggest we go higher than this

With wounded wings, you step back from me
Take me as your paper crane
I’ll construct however you’d like,
you can hang me over the pyre
But, Creature, don't light me on fire
