the haze

We're connected by cables
As thin as our hair
We've got no more ribbons
Of muscle to spare
We send our souls
To the depths of the ocean
Messages swirling
Hearts turning in motion
Kiss her at midnight
Hide from the daylight
Oh he'll never know your ways
Laugh 'til you fall down
Cry 'til there's no sound
No one knows the difference through the haze
With so much as a snip
We could be forgotten 
Memories lost
Bodies folded in cotton
Years of regret
Tattooed on your backbone
The colors of sunsets
Of neon and chrome
Dare to defy
The rules of your sorrow
Wake up and run out
Like there's no tomorrow
Count up your days
And fight while you're breathing
As long as you stay you can keep her from leaving
