Mortimer Nova – Skinned Knees lyrics

A little song before you go to sleep
This fire you've sparked in me will burn me alive
A vertigo, the milquetoast, digress
Looks like I'll be drowning alone

I'm all alone in my cell while you go
Trapped in a flood, sink alive, pray to die
Attention, please be still, say no more
Attention, there's no love, anymore

I'll wait for tomorrow to shave my head and start over
Hold my breath and fall backwards, will you catch me
Float over belly up and take me home
I can't forgive you until the day we are flawless

Just the way you speak drops me to my knees
