lyrics

to have no faults, that's only in dreams
that's what they said, that's what they said

it can't maintain without tearing away
that's what they said, that's what they said

can't keep it safe from our fucking hands
that's what they said, that's what they said

if can't hate then be damned
that's what they said, that's what they said

well they're right
all angels will suffocate on earth

come night
we'll strip the world of anything of worth

and if you're of the mind that's bound to say
"rainy days will fade away"
endless floods will prove you wrong
and blacken out that happy face

so if there's something you hold dear
kill it now out of fear
because the one thing we hate most
are hearts unsullied and demure

i met a girl who did nothing but scream
that's what they said, that's what they said

i'm told they trampled, spit on her dreams
that's what they said, that's what they said

because she wished to fill our fucking hands
that's what they said, that's what they said

her wrists have valleys, for our demands
that's what they said, that's what they said

[pre-chorus]

[chorus]

we blame it on her heartbeat
because of it we can't sleep
you can't blame us being jealous
of the angels that are above us

we'll rip them out of heaven
with our taped-on wing ascension
how dare they walk among us
the perfect and the vaunted
