lyrics

I was the boy next door
and you’re the queen of the second floor
living in a cage
made of gold and mother’s rage
does all that life could bring
seem to fit between
the front seat of some car
broken bones and broken hearts

and you crushed into this sleep
a hundred miles per hour deep

so please wake up
and take me by the hand
and lead me far from where it ought to end

now they dressed you up in white
like an unkissed, unwilling bride
lying in a cage
filled with blood and inner rage

and you crushed into this sleep
a hundred miles per hour deep

so please wake up
and take me by the hand
and lead me far from where it ought to end

Timeless melodies hide deep in the apparent chaos of the garage. ... more
