Eyes As Candles

Passion Pit

Manners


My world is stirring sickly,
Spits out our voices singing,
"Tra la la la, oh, oh, no,"
To kingdom come so slightly.
Here in the void in your place
I'll twitch and tweak in illusion
To sit and stare so blankly
Into our whole confused air.

Why do I always need to need you when you're fleeting?
Where do you go when I'm around?
What have I done? What have I lost that's so defeating?
And have the nerve to wear the crown.

Oh,
Na, na, na, na, na, na, hey, hey, hey. (x4)

Some guarded room:
A smoky figure fills me full, makes my head swell and move.
My family kneels at the pew,
They nod, "We believe in what you're doing."
I feel you rise above me,
The western landscape is towering,
And from my shell of a body
The flowers blossom for picking.

Why do I always need to need you when you're fleeting?
Where do you go when I'm around?
What have I done? What have I lost that's so defeating?
And have the nerve to wear the crown.

Oh,
Na, na, na, na, na, na, hey, hey, hey. (x8)

I've waited and waited for someone to take it.
Don't fight it, don't bother an inch for another.
Don't listen, don't hear them, they're in this together.
I've learned well, now hear me, there's much to be fearing.
I'm used to your absence, your faceless distraction.
I've hated your problems but found them attractive.
Now I've been leaning towards a life a lot more caring.
Thrown back through the dark with your eyes as my candle.
And your life, and my life, directions can render.
And all of a sudden you left me to handle
The reasons that never forbid me to step out.
And somehow or somewhere I found out the secret.
To say it aloud without actually breathing.
