Heather (In Virtue)

I stop to look as I ink this page Turn it slowly towards your hands Hardly turning on the wood grain I slide the letter across its face I stop to look as I turn to stone Look back now, see for yourself Burn my eyes, teach me to think I’ve never practiced what I preached Burn this A into my chest And I’m sure I will stand but you will fall You will fall like a stone in the walls The walls of Jericho Look at me, look in my eyes Is this the sinner you left alone? Of course I won’t take this to heart It’s not like you left me over the phone I stop to look as I turn to stone Look back now, see for yourself Burn my eyes, teach me to think I’ll never practice what I preach Burn this A into my chest And I’m sure I will stand but you will fall You will fall like a stone in the walls The walls of Jericho This kiss of death, in ecstasy Ignites my fatal fantasy I just can’t face reality I won’t admit my fallacy Jericho, you’re caving in Giving way to gravity
