lyrics

Panic and perfume
Litter our curfew,
I wrestle the spectrum
That dances around you.
It can't be the truth.
It can't be the truth.

So top up my glass
& take off your dress.
Lie on the bed
Let's do things we'll regret.
I want to forget.
I want to forget.

There's no heart in this Hercules —
Just a footfall counter,
Money market love song.
& I tried to turn it off
But now I just hum along.

Put on your camouflage of words,
We're leaving the house.
Keep it small — keep it polite,
You're one of them tonight.
So strap on your shoes,
We'll find a name to use.
We'll find a mask that fits.
We'll find a story that sticks.
I think this is it.
i think this is it.

There's no heart in this Hercules —
Just a footfall counter,
Money market love song.
& I tried to turn it off
But now I just hum along.

Sweetheart, you need to speed up.
So the barrier guillotines.
So this carrier submarines.
Until the silence is deafening . . .
