heather lyrics – in virtue

i stop to look as i ink this page
turn it slowly towards your hands
hardly turning on the wood grain
i slide the letter across its face

i stop to look as i turn to stone
look back now, see for yourself
burn my eyes, teach me to think
i’ve never practiced what i preached

burn this a into my chest
and i’m sure i will stand but you will fall
you will fall like a stone in the walls
the walls of jericho

look at me, look in my eyes
is this the sinner you left alone?
of course i won’t take this to heart
it’s not like you left me over the phone

i stop to look as i turn to stone
look back now, see for yourself
burn my eyes, teach me to think
i’ll never practice what i preach

burn this a into my chest
and i’m sure i will stand but you will fall
you will fall like a stone in the walls
the walls of jericho

this kiss of death, in ecstasy
ignites my fatal fantasy
i just can’t face reality
i won’t admit my fallacy

jericho, you’re caving in
giving way to gravity

/ in virtue lyrics
