And sure you had her at your fingers Could navigate with your eyes closed And sure you knew all of her pieces Our Lady of Nobody Such a disappointing puzzle The chase is always better than the catch And who could blame you for getting tired Our Lady of Nobody So you turn your back And you walk away And you think you hear her sobbing And as the day fades And you're far enough away You take to the sky And so she's peeled of all her layers In Heaven and she is on fire And of this choir I hear her singing Our Lady of Nobody And how they shine, so red her feathers The brightest star above the sea Even the strongest arms can't reach her Our Lady of Nobody And everyday I hear her singing Our Lady of Nobody

And I can't admit I love you I don't think I know the words As graceful as hair in water The arch, the curve And I have kept this buried beneath me Under floorboards and behind walls And I could write it down in lead here It will fade, after all Safe and soundless We slide against the page Scared and motionless Nothing to lose Nothing to gain There is safety in escaping A strike of fear for me to stay And I can hear you whisper In the waves We are little more than a series of letters We're unmarked We're unsent We are neverminds, it doesn't matter We're the spirits the salt has bent Left to tangle across the other And away from what we want Content to simply scatter Have we forgotten where to start? Safe and soundless We slide against the page Scared and motionless Nothing to lose Nothing to gain There is safety in escaping A strike of fear for me to stay And I can hear you whisper In the waves

Well the day moves on And he shines so bright He shines like a star In the daylight Well the day moves on And we just sigh As dim as the rest in the daylight But when the sun sets They, too, shall fade As dark as night And just as plain Well he plucked you up And you watched him burn And you prayed for the day he'd love you For what you are Well you danced all day Then he set you free And you begged with him "...darling, just stay with me." But when the sun sets They, too, shall fade As dark as night And just as plain Well the night moves on And you'll see with time That diamonds shine bright With the right light Shine on and on on and on

Oh you will ride your foxes You'll swim with armies You said you'd build us a tower where we can stretch our legs and be free Oh you have built this tower Made of lies and misery You scraped the skin from my arms Tied knots in my veins You have built this hole from me Oh you will ride your foxes You said you'd save me You swore you'd love Love me Oh I would swim these waters that have poured out of me I almost threw out my arms and swore you were the cavalry But every mask every day Through porcelain I see This faery's tale is fading But I'm a little bit brighter Than you knew me to be My spine unwinds, you see Oh this vision is fading And these walls don't sing And I wonder if you ever think of me Oh I wonder if you ever think of me

Peppermints and liquor laced You don't know You don't know Take my hand and no one will ever, ever know.
