Track Name: Saccharine
i could try, try to get past the pain
i realise i have lied to myself for years
that i'm not satisfied

i could fail, fail to leave behind
'cause it still lingers with every step,
looking back at all the things i should've done

tiny transmission waves on your wrist
i'd love to wear them for you
to dress up in your anxiety and your fears

fleeting, beating, deceiving feelings
leave your marks, see the sparks
of our day dream flicker and fade

you're so serene, saccharine
you're nailed into me
i'll miss you in the satisfaction

you're so serene, saccharine
you're nailed into me
i'll miss you in the satisfaction
before i wear you off

cold caresses, sending you away
but the worst is, it takes some time to let you go
put my love aside

you're so serene, saccharine
you're nailed into me
i'll miss you in the satisfaction

you're so serene, saccharine
you're nailed into me
and i'll miss you in the saddest fashion
before you wear me out
