lyrics

We gotta get out of sight, duck into a fluorescent underground parking garage
he’s pulling at door handles, oh cute he thinks we can escape
I’m the one who loses, I’m the one who loses
“You’re the one who lost it,” he shouts. “Where’d you stash that getaway car?”
too entranced to move, too pained to run
burst through sliding doors, dirty faces and cracked floors
red and blue flashes, he takes my weight dragging him down
shouting voices, people rushing, needles, alarms
my bloody shirt, bullet holes and dying red roses
crumpled on the cement, bright lights, dirty floors
I said you shouldn’t trust me, I said you shouldn’t trust me
I’m the one who loses, I’m the one who loses
his eyes get wide, he finally recognizes
“Snakey, don’t leave me, I can’t live without you”
my death arrives to devour my fading warmth
he rides the currents over my collapse
I’m the one who loses, I’m the one who loses
fragile tender moments with so much nothingness around them
your face fills every thought, as I’m dragged protesting to the void
