lyrics

I told you there's no need to be alarmed
I've got some principles to keep you from harm
Though I may disregard
Hold tight, my darling, I am invincible
Somewhat invincible
We're yet embarking
Terminally derailed

Permanently, I have a vague fascination with what you say
My latest trainwreck is fanning out across the plain

So much for promises
Not yet begun to fight
Not yet and never might
So much for grievances
Murmured out of sight
Not yet and never might
Both of us charred, parted
Maybe she's texting
I interject

But there's the same hesitation I used to fear
My latest trainwreck is burning and perfectly clear

Cornflake apocalypse on this a brand new morning
Let's kiss instead of yawning
I told you there's no need
No need for principles
I'm a good criminal
We're yet embarking
Permanently derailed

Terminally, I have a vague fascination with what you say
My latest trainwreck is burning out, I walk away
It is the same hesitation
I used to pray
My latest trainwreck is burning out I walk away
