lyrics

I found your body by the shore when no one claimed you
I dragged you into town to find someone to name you.

Lock me up and tear it out—
The love we grew was strangled.
Lock me up but tear them out—
The weeds have grown entangled with anything left.

This disease is killing me, and I think it kills you too.
I never thought I’d hear the things I heard from you

Lock you up and tear it out—
The love we grew grows hateful.
Lock you up and tear it out—
Now it seems so shameful.

I cannot speak to the dead anymore.
No, I cannot speak to the dead anymore.

They found my body by the shore when no one claimed me,
They dragged me into town to find the one who shamed me.

Lock me up and tear it out—
The love we grew you strangled.
Lock me up but tear them out—
The weeds have grown entangled with anything left.

Lock me up and tear it out—
The love I grew was wasted.
Lock me up and tear it out—
The love I grew is shameful.
