Perfectly Preserved

from The Lost Grimoire by Headless Relatives

lyrics

I watch you huddle by the fire
Never quite long enough to thaw
But I can't really blame you
We've played ourselves to a draw

I know that the ice is the only thing
Stopping necrosis from setting in
And it's just easier to stay with you now
Lack of initiative is my savior and my sin

We sit side by side and laugh with each other
Pretending everything is alright
But everybody knows the only reason we're together
Is that neither of us can fly or fight

We eat our breakfast in the kitchen
And the closeness feels alright
Our east-facing window lets the sun stream through
To bathe your face in golden light

And I half expect small children to look in
Hands and faces pressed up against the glass
'Cause like an exhibit in some dusty old museum
This is just a diorama of the glories of our past

We sit side by side and laugh with each other
Pretending everything is alright
But everybody knows the only reason we're together
Is that neither of us can fly

We sit side by side and laugh with each other
Pretending everything is alright
But everybody knows the only reason we're together
Is that neither of us can fly or fight
