The Velvet Teen

The Velvet Teen - Penicillin (It Doesn't Mean Much)

rate me

Don't say it's the last time you'll ever need this

To simply blow over in words you conceal with

It doesn't mean much when you're telling me lies

To prove your affection, you'd marry my strings

But when I'm called away, do you bury my things

How easily unearthed what our maladies hide

But I'll never leave

You could never go where I couldn't follow

I'll make you see

Never been a pill or sin I couldn't swallow

I swear on the bottle, from the bottom, it all looks worse than it is

Ink takes, routine takes ink, we'll parch the words

That leave me as film on your lips, wrists, and fingers

A cage, like the first verse, when I promised you (us) all the rest

Now you'll feel the rest

But I'll never leave

You could never go where I couldn't follow

I'll make you see

Never been a pill or sin I couldn't swallow

I swear on the ballot, from up here, you can't see a thing

So I'll never ask

You could never take the words that would follow

And you'll never tell

Never said a thing that I didn’t already know

I swear on the gavel, from the battle, I've grown tired of the war

Let's remove the bond from these bands that we wear

The rings never closed, so there'll ne'er be a blame to bear

Where we're built to bend

Oh, the flesh never dyes
