Civilized

lyrics

If only we could live on hunger
If only we could be sustained by being desired
It wouldn’t be such a tragedy
That you’re so goddamn civilized

You haven’t used those eyes on me in years
But I remember when you were wild

So I am making peace with the emptiness, the hollowness, oh
Because I refuse to fill it with lies

Do I wish for the young rogue back
I used to hope you would grow up
I always knew you sort-of loved me
But it would never be enough

All the threads pulling on my heart, leading nowhere
(Cut them) I don’t need their ties
All the torches my hands strain to carry
Drop them -- I don’t need their light
