The Dead Things Grow

YOU CAN TRY TO CURE SOMETHING YOU CUT

SO CLOSE TO YOU

WITH A WORD, UNSPOKEN

OR A LINE THAT COMES TOO SOON 

IT'S NOT THE WORDS YOU SAY

IT'S THE WAY YOU SAY THEM

 

IT'S FROM THE PART INSIDE

NOT WHERE YOU BREAK AND BATTER AND GET CUT DOWN

THE DEAD THINGS GROW

IT'S FROM THE PART INSIDE

NOT WHERE YOU BURN AND BRUISE AND FALL APART

THE DEAD THINGS GROW

THE DEAD THINGS GROW 


PICTURE NOW

TO BE LED SOMEHOW AND LED ASTRAY

YOU MOVE TOO FAST

JUST TO LEAVE SOME KIND OF MARK ON STARS

THE LIE BECOMES THE SONG

AS YOU TRY TO DANCE ALONG

 

IT'S FROM THE PART INSIDE

NOT WHERE YOU BREAK AND BATTER AND GET CUT DOWN

THE DEAD THINGS GROW

IT'S FROM THE PART INSIDE

NOT WHERE YOU BURN AND BRUISE AND FALL APART

THE DEAD THINGS GROW

THE DEAD THINGS GROW 

 

IT'S FROM THE PART INSIDE

NOT WHERE YOU BREAK AND BATTER AND GET CUT DOWN

THE DEAD THINGS GROW

IT'S FROM THE PART INSIDE

NOT WHERE YOU BURN AND BRUISE AND FALL APART

THE DEAD THINGS GROW

THE DEAD THINGS GROW 

 

IT'S FROM THE PART INSIDE

NOT WHERE YOU BREAK AND BATTER AND GET CUT DOWN

THE DEAD THINGS GROW

IT'S FROM THE PART INSIDE

NOT WHERE YOU BURN AND BRUISE AND FALL APART

THE DEAD THINGS GROW

THE DEAD THINGS GROW 

THE DEAD THINGS GROW

THE DEAD THINGS GROW
