lyrics

FOREVER FRAIL

What would you say if I said you were my hero
In life, death, decadence and the places
That lie in between?
What would you say if I said
You were the last thing on my mind?
But didn’t you always say
You never existed anyway?
And soon your heart will fail,
And you’ll be forever frail.

Sometimes I imagine you if you stood up
And laughed at those who scorned you and fucked you but instead you said,
‘If He can sacrifice his son,
I guess I can’t complain’
I’m sure some would say
I knew He’d do it one of these days,
And soon your heart will fail,
And you’ll be forever frail.

Sometimes it’s so hard
Just to look you in the eye.
Would you be there if I called for you
Or would my name be lost on your
Final shallow breaths?

But didn’t you always say
You welcomed death in a way?
And soon your heart will fail
And you’ll be forever frail.
