Silhouette

Your eyes followed me here
Your eyes seamless and sure
They leave me broken and in need of a cure

Your eyes followed me here
Your eyes sifting my soul
They leave me broken and forge diamonds from the coal

They race me along
The infinite synapse of white lines
And then while chasing the dawn
With storybook syntax
Your eyes slit the throat of all I know
About myself in this life
This silhouette lie

And your eyes speaking in tongues, vigilant still
Filling my lungs, testing my will
They leave me broken and bruised and bleeding
Your eyes resting in flame
Leave me breathless again

Like hydrogen split on fault lines
Or ten years living with exposure to radon
Your eyes slit the throat of all I know
About myself in this life
This silhouette lie

Your eyes, your eyes
Speaking in tongues, vigilant still, lead our way
Your eyes, your eyes
Filling my lungs, testing my will

You slit the throat of all I know
About myself in this life
This silhouette lie
Slit my throat, 'cause I know
That this life is a lie
So slit my throat
