lyrics

Freeze all my visions, they say it comes in threes
Shatter ore into perfect symmetry
and we'll bury the paragon under snow
When I go you don't have to follow

Buried in sand
a pearl, a still hologram
You're holding my heart in your hands
I'm negative space
Opaque and coming in waves
as I swim through the shape of your name

Everywhere that I go feels like I've been
here before as my shadow or my twin
Lay around with my past selves talking shit
When they forget my name I like it

Buried in sand
a pearl, a still hologram
You're holding my heart in your hands
I'm negative space
Opaque and coming in waves
as I swim through the shape of your name
Can't win and can't lose
Searching in corners and clues
My heaven fades in the clearest of blue
I know if I stay
I'll hold my breath passing graves
and get dizzy from the games that we play

Time is pulling down
the corners of my mouth

One eye on the sky every day and night
One eye on the sky that I can't recognize
One eye on the sky almost all the time
One eye on the sky that I can't recognize
Every day and night

Buried in sand
a pearl, a still hologram
You're holding my heart in your hands
I'm negative space
Opaque and coming in waves
as I swim through the shape of your name
Can't win and can't lose
Searching in corners and clues
My heaven fades in the clearest of blue
I know if I stay
I'll hold my breath passing graves
and get dizzy from the games that we play
