Checkmate

Chorus 
Decaying candles,
Perishing gently,
She lit her cigarette,
Reliving how she,
Crucified something
She once loved
Yet felt nothing.

Listen!
You cannot be so into yourself.

Part 1
Behold,
The widow’s
Grown horns,
Her shadow,
Behind

Chorus (repeat)
Decaying candles,
Perishing gently,
She lit her cigarette,
Reliving how she,
Crucified something
She once loved
Yet felt nothing.

Listen!
You cannot be so into yourself.

Stop! Stop!

Part 2
Fingernails grew three inches,
Changed yellow,
Fell off,
Became dust.

Part 4
He felt the crisis,
Heartbeat, like, twice as
Fast, she was laughing,
His face was priceless,
Rice and a dark foam,
Dried him to brimstone
(repeat)
Dried him to brimstone

Chorus
Decaying candles,
Perishing gently,
She lit her cigarette,
Reliving how she,
Crucified something
She once loved
Yet felt nothing.

Listen!
You cannot be so into yourself.
