song by My Midnight Heart
Chest of Hearts lyrics

Lips in sharp delirium
Left in splintered modicum
BREATHE, BREATHE

Chest of hearts to hold us home
Shrine of life and death undone
BREATHE, BREATHE

Oh, denial
He's the sweetest slave I ever bought and sold
Oh, denial
But here's the weakest side of me I've never shown
Oh, denial
King of crowns forgotten now and so we'll go
Oh, denial
Grab the flask and drink it down too slow

Vail of grace to keep us safe
Blind, and deaf, and almost chaste
BREATHE, BREATHE

Oh, denial
He's the sweetest slave I ever bought and sold
Oh, denial
But here's the weakest side of me I've never shown
Oh, denial
King of crowns forgotten now and so we'll go
Oh, denial
Grab the flask and drink it down too slow

When clenching blood in hands like these
My thoughts steady
When breaking bones that bend like these
We're never ready to drown the voices out
Drown the voices out, drown the voices out
Drown the voices out

Oh, hosanna
When clenching blood in hands like these
When breaking bones that bend like these
