Lyrics

My fingers follow the trajectory
The chasm left a reminder
Once was flowing crimson
And you stood there smirking

The others appear invisible
Under regular conditions
Until someone trips into oblivion
And rips the scars back open

And it's not their fault
And it's not their fault
You're like a pathogen
And you manage to infect ad infinitum

I've managed to stop thinking about you
Until another innocent shows me your face
And I refuse to hate you, cos you don't possess that power
But I hate myself cos I never learn to heal

Resiliance is only illusion
Waves and wind will always win
My control lost in oncoming headlights
And you sat there shouting

Most days are like a gentle breeze
I can forget how you made me crazy
Full moons and special days collapsed
As I wail behind the steering wheel

And it's not their fault
And it's not their fault
You're like a pathogen
And you'd celebrate your handiwork
