lyrics

CONTORTIONIST

contortionist, contortionist you twist so well and make me want to scream for you
this sympathy, this sympathy or empathy is all that I can bend into

Ooo and Ahh I love it how you fold and fly and make us scream
Ooo and how I'd love to try but im not good at anything
dancing on your fingertips the things I'd never dare to do
I would give these hands a chance but they would rather clap for you

peel and burn, peel and burn these taciturn schemes manipulate and scrape our knees
take a turn, take a turn we never learn how your metamorphosis deceives

falling for the looking glass fallacy
envious of what we're never meant to be
taken by the talents of another one's reality
blistering beneath the skin when shoes don't fit the feet

rubics cube, undo the trouble that you left for us to stumble
over and upon the colors that were once in fancy order
rubics cube undo the trouble that you left for us to stumble
over and upon your highness, we will put you back in order

I've been fooled again and again and again
Contortionist is getting under my skin
