Blood & BonesI left pieces of myself across Nevada
I left pieces of myself across the floor
and I am solid here until I feel the next move
I am solid here until it ties me down

Choosing one direction
We were always just a day behind
never catching up
Never catching up with time
I didn’t hear the heartbreak
I didn’t see the sign
And somehow all these dots and dashes blurred into a line

Chorus:
If only I could read the Blood and Bones
If I could see the patterns and the future it decodes
If only I could read the blood and bones
Scattered on the road
Scattered on the road

I left pieces of myself across Montana
I left pieces of myself across the snow
And I am hoping that the rhythm is the answer
I am hoping that your heartbeat ties me down

Living here with strangers
we were driving through the storm with one eye closed
never sensing danger”
Or sensing what the future holds
I didn’t see your shadow
slip beneath the stars
and we escaped into the night
but not without our scars

Chorus

Alt Ending:
I left pieces of myself between the pages
you left pieces of yourself for me to hold
and we are silent now as if we’re standing vigil
since all we are (are/is) pieces of a whole

CreepingBeen a long time coming
Now it’s on the line
It’s just a moment before he breaks me
Been a long road running
Now admit the crime
You said they weren’t lies
Because you meant them at the time

Chorus:
I see you creeping slowly
Off the stage and hiding from
The holy light
I see you peaking from
Behind the curtain
For something that feels alive
I see you waiting

It’s an ultimatum
How can I choose
It’s just a moment before it breaks me
It’s exasperating
With no prose or rhyme
Changing what will work from day to day
’Til you make up your mind

Outro:
Right? Right? Tell me I’m right
Tell me I can’t expect
anything
anymore
