The Velvet Teen

The Velvet Teen - We Were Bound (To Bend the Rules)

rate me

Half-full loses weight once you taste it

So for now my empty glass must mean I've chased it

But I'm not wasted and I'll not waste it

The dealer laced it with a new decree of our separation

How many have you taken?

And I could run off at the mouth

For hours on end, like I'd gone senseless

But I'm just speechless

Rendered me defenseless

Barred from your presence, my name from present-tenses

And yes, I've sensed this

Since early August

I'm not dense and it's obvious that you're more than just friends

But I'm not against this

I'll remove our fences

And just hide in these sentencing sentences

Till things can start making sense

It's a roseate opiate ruse of roguish rouge

That brings back my black and bruised blues

The sea, our torpid frames pale upon the beach

Entwined in love's sands, between those sheets

Remember

I mean, really think back now

To the very last time you were happy

And yeah, I know, got the job, got the family

Got no free time, and still they'll take what's left

Now we're running on empty but I know we can make it

Can't turn around

And we can't change our destination

But when our transmission ends

They'll rescue us

And we'll start from where we land

It's roseate opiate ruse of roguish rouge

That brings back my black and bruised blues

You can't rob the coppery tide of her cherry-ish hues

The shores of these sheets recant refuse

Forget about the wedding rings we lose

Only greater love will see us through

It don't matter now how long we've played the fools

We both know we were bound to bend the rules

You should know by now, we never lose

No never, never

You can mock the malleable calms of ancient rule

Forever and ever

Or forgive them for they know not what they do

Whatever, whatever

So Rosemary's baby to sing the truth

For worse or for better

Now, the idiosyncrasy when they serve the savants

And the mouth of the iris learns to let the light in

May the end of our times make way for the rules that we bend

Times are always changing, but life never ends
