lyrics

So far, it looks like a cell
Organelles spread thin
Your RNA ladders don't matter
when these ribosomes stand alone
Ebb into new stars

I'm wrought from a bursting behind me
from nova to dwarf
You push me into the blueprints
for the universe expansion

You flutter the fan
until I am your man

You make me
You make me
You make me wanna file a complaint
to my creator
to my superior
I wanna switch the plane of my existence
I wanna know you in complete confidence
in subtle bodies, not physical traits

It's not an exaggeration for me
to count my questions in the trillions
I wanna talk to each of you as equals
I want you to seep through my skin
to be a lantern guiding others up

I'm begging to be kept in the loop
in communication constellations
because falling into your arms
is the furthest thing from foreign

Let's both recollect
what we're forced to forget

You make me
You make me
You make me wanna file a complaint
to my creator
to my superior
I wanna switch the plane of my existence
I wanna know you in complete confidence
in subtle bodies, not physical traits

Who's never ever ever gonna stay dead?
Who's never ever ever gonna stay dead?
I won't, I won't, I won't

Black-on-black background was painted
to keep our past between us
Add in elements of mystery
and an agreement kept in complete secret
But you can't keep it in, you could never keep it in

Because I've traveled this way before
I haven't forgotten
and I'm not the only one
who sees you in the mirror

I've brought some friends
We'll never stay dead

You make me
You make me
You make me wanna file a complaint
to my creator
to my superior
I wanna switch the plane of my existence
I wanna know you in complete confidence
in subtle bodies, not physical traits
