lyrics

Killed instantly the second you stepped out the door
It was all in the cards, it was written in the stars
And you saw suddenly how it had always been in your face
From the word go, equator to pole

Run through and through with a dark desperation
That you couldn't quite shake, born too early or late
And it took the alignment of just the right planets
For everything out of joint to sharpen to a point

The smell of death, around the corner of every breath
The only time there's any peace is when you sleep

Woke up shuddering to the memory of arguments
And the wind-up mouths, finally run themselves down
With the ice on your wings and the fog that a hangover brings
What was the last sound before you touched down?

The smell of death, around the corner of every breath
The only time there's any peace is when you sleep

Killed instantly the second you stepped out the door
