Heart Beat Faster

lyrics

could you make me something metal
could you build it so I'm strong
but please be sure that it is functional
for when this shit starts going wrong

I suppose it could be a pedestal
for the weak rhythm of my heart
please weld it better, write me love letters
for when the doctors say you've gone

but I can feel the phantom beating
of your heartbeat when I'm asleep
& will is not the same as follow-through
it takes brute force & sometimes surgery

heart beat faster
heart beat faster
make me stronger, I'm six feet under
heart beat faster

my fuse is itching to run out
is there machinery you could bring
see I was born into this broken mess
not even miles seem to fix

with every day a little death
& I pray that trip is beautiful
but maybe the gears that grind against your wheels
could spark a kickstart to my chest

but I can feel the phantom beating
of your heartbeat when I'm asleep
& will is not the same as follow-through
it takes brute force & sometimes honesty
and my defenses have been waning
but i have promises to keep
& tried is not the same as being true
it takes brute force & sometimes surgery

heart beat faster
heart beat faster
make me stronger, I'm six feet under
heart beat faster

oh, july
you seem so far away
your heat parades by
threatening fallouts
you're just a ghost through my walls
your'e such a strange charade
wrap your sucker punches
up in scrap metal
oh baby, make me blush

now I will become lion hearted
and stand up brave with arms outstretched
& wave my keys in these electric storms
til I have out-tempted this test

it's just a picture just a song
it's just a secret bound in chicken wire
keep it, a keepsake for when I am gone
the time of reckoning has come

but I can feel the phantom beating
of your heartbeat when I'm asleep
& will is not the same as follow-through
it takes brute force & sometimes honesty
and my defenses have been waning
but i have promises to keep
& tried is not the same as being true
it takes brute force & sometimes surgery

heart beat faster
heart beat faster
make me stronger, I'm six feet under
heart beat faster
