lyrics

Porcelain teeth, cherry flavored lipgloss
surrounds a mouth fighting to hide
what it truly wishes to reveal.
When every day becomes a battle
and every breath holds dear,
when does it become time to draw the line?

Stay quiet now, you may wake the monster,
and foil the plans we've fought so hard to keep.
There's a whole new world left for us to see,
so let's make our escape, now, while he sleeps.

Porcelain teeth, cherry flavored lipgloss,
surrounds a mouth fearing to tell a soul
what it truly means to feel pain.
When every day becomes a battle
and every breath could be your last,
when does it become time to say goodbye?

Stay quiet now, you may wake the monster,
and foil the plans we've fought so hard to keep.
There's a whole new world left for us to see,
so let's make our escape, now, while he sleeps.

Running mascara, the tears smear hope
over the victim's lucid eyes,
fighting every moment to stay awake.
She heaves, expelling the liquid remedies
she's consumed to take her pain away.

Stay quiet now, you may wake the monster,
and foil the plans we've fought so hard to keep.
There's a whole new world left for us to see,
so let's make our escape, now, while he sleeps.
