Tear it down
Strip my layers off
My turpentine
Old paint, old looks
Cover up the past
White heat, white light
Super whity bones
Bones of you and i

Pure if i ... Can't you help me?
Pure if i ... Won't you help me?
Purify you and i
Purify you and i
Pure if i ... Can't you help me?
Pure if i ... Won't you help me?
You and i purify

Truth and dare
Peeling back the skin
Acid wash
Ghost white
Ultra clean
Wanna be skeleton
Clear eyes
Diamond eyes
Strip the past of mine
My sweet turpentine

I can find dirt on anything
I can find dirt on anything

I ain't dancing with your skeletons
I ain't dancing with what might have been
