The Receiving End Of Sirens – Swallow People Whole lyrics

From the manger to the morgue
Strangers are born and reborn
Giving birth to the wages of sin
And claiming it came from within

Within me there's a gaping hole
It seems I'm last to know
No one, or thing, can fill this empty space
That I've been pacing in

I fell in love with an empty place
But I want change
But I won't change

I can't feel a thing
The pins and needles sing

I can say it
But it won't mean a thing
Cause I know you'll fall for
Each and every pretty word I sing

Spirits spin me round once more
Said "If you sing the overture
That lulls me back to sleep,
I swear I'm yours to keep. "
Consumed with consuming
Soon I'll swallow people whole
I'll have back what strangers stole

If I can't find my happiness
I'll soon devour yours
I'll sing your weary head to rest
With my overture
Cause I fell in love with an empty place
But I want yours
But I want yours

For it I fell
For it I fell so fast
For it I fell
For it I fell so hard
For it I fell
For it I fell so fast
I fell for it, I fell for it

We lose ourselves once more

You could say it
But it won't mean a thing
Cause you know I'll fall for
Each and every pretty word you sing
