lyrics

I know a thing about obsession
And I know that demon won’t let go for less than everything you’ve got except him
But even demons can be bought for something
I am the anchor in your depths and while I hold you steady, rest

Because I was built to hold my breath
You're just bringing out my best
Dragging dirt and breathing water
I’ll drink the darkness that surrounds you
And leave those demons not a place to hide

You and I now lie alone
But our ghosts will carry on

I know a thing about excuses
And I know the fear that you must feel to want to use one
The truth is hard fought and often not won
But I saw the devil in the corner tying nooses
I’ll offer first when he needs a neck and while I keep him busy, rest

Because I was built to hold my breath
You’re just bringing out my best
I can hang until he can’t hold me
Or until the rafters fall at our feet

I’ve seen that you seem so over this
So come clean with yourself
Yea, you seem so over this

I’ll get the ball rolling the words right off your tongue
I’ll be the bottom so the only way is up

You and I now lie alone
But our ghosts will carry on
