This house is full of stale air, and the stench of kerosene These windows ain't been open since the garden here was green For three months it's been snowing like a monochromic dream These dusty thoughts of you, they won't stop ripping at my seams
Maybe you're the medicine that I've been waiting for But it seems to me the sickness might be better than the cure I'm always drawn to poison when it's sweet against my tongue The sugar coating hides it while my body's going numb
So numb So numb Like sugar on my tongue
My vision is so narrow through this telescopic lens It magnifies the secrets as the broken image bends, and all I See is the reflection of someone who looks like you But I�m too jaded from the journey to make sense of all the truth
But the camera sees the things we miss, it freezes us in time And it catches every frame as we go tumbling through our lives And it holds us to a standard that we're never gonna meet The trying is so bitter when the sugar is so...
Well, my mind has been in shambles since you crashed into my life I've been balancing my weakness on the corner of a knife, and I keep Slipping into places where I never thought I'd be If temptation is my guardian, I never will be free
So numb You've won So numb Like sugar on my tongue Like sugar on my tongue
