lyrics

I hear a ghost sharpening her teeth
fake a smile, dry swallow your seed
use a bottle to drown out the cries of a banshee

in the silence we're safe
pray upon the names of dead saints
the difference in what we mean and what we say

the blood we inherit, spit on our portraits
becomes more apparent on your fingertips
moments that we cherish before we vanish

watch holy water leak out her mouth
through the mirror we watch our sins follow devout

in the silence we're hazed
does your memory make you proud?
the difference in what we mean and what we say

the blood we inherit, spit on our portraits
becomes more apparent on your fingertips
moments that we cherish before we vanish

can you read a crooked smile from the cover of a veil?
hide the dirt under your fingernails
