Razorblade Twin

from Culture of Self by Dan Jacob Wallace

lyrics

no, that’s not a lover’s gaze that’s staring
so blankly through the hazy red clouded remains
of a night filled with rage
no, i couldn’t know its name, it wandered
into my optic blame, you know i had to take aim:
it didn’t know its own shame

you think i’m wrong to be sure of a way
to eliminate such pain
but when you’re alone, and i promise you will be
then you’ll be on my side

oh, when did the summer end
and when did this hate begin?
it’s worn me so thin, like a razorblade twin, ah…

no, that’s not a lover’s mane that’s scraggling
between rocks and broken veins
why won’t it just wash away?
it’s been down there for days
no, i couldn’t count the squares, they formed
underneath their broken spells
i wasn’t there when he fell, so don’t blame me for hell

you think i’m wrong to be sure of a way
to eliminate such pain
but when you’re alone, and i promise you will be
then you’ll be on my side

oh, when did the summer end
and when did this hate begin?
it’s worn me so thin, like a razorblade twin, ah…
oh, when did i first give in
to all of these hopeless whims?
oh, when can we start again?
but this time i want to win
it’s worn me so thin, like a razorblade twin, ah…
