lyrics

Oh my God
Can you make me good
Could you make me truly good
Just not yet

I'm not whole
I'm not holy
But I'm wholly modern
Where the sun meets ground

Where I stood in the dark
I stood in the dark beside you

And I
I reside in a city
Where anxiety is taken for energy

Repeatin'
Repeatin'

Over and over again
Like a mantra in my head
Over and over again

Off and on
In my peripheries
I watch great buildings grow silent with centuries
Until they stood in the dark
Until they stood in the dark with me

Can't you see
Can't you see

Over and over again
Like a mantra in my head
Over and over again

With these words
You've warn out yourself
And you've warn out the world

A first-born stomach that labors for every breath
You can feign a breve
But you can't fake a breath

Quote me "Atlas" or some testament
But you can't grasp sub-text
Your laurels can't rest just yet

Oh my God
Can you make me good
Could you make me good

Just not yet
Just not yet
Just not

Over and over again
Over and over

Off and on then on again
