open your eyes lyrics – margot & the nuclear so and so’s

monday, i drifted away
with some coffee to keep me awake
and you saw new york one final time
as this credit card shut up your eyes

tuesday, i woke with the dawn
and put my old wedding ring on
she said, “time is a fickle mistress.
you can drink but you’ll never fool it.”

and i am invisible to you
all on my own, what can i do?
southbound is heaven, the city of sin

wednesday, i hung from a tree
hoping that you’d notice me
that you’d bath all my wounds in your tears
and shower me with sympathy

thursday was harder to take
these pills pile high on my plate
so, i swallowed each one in a haze
in a cascade of light i was saved

and i am invisible to you
all on my own, what can i do?
southbound is heaven, the city of sin

she says, “i’m sorry, my darling.
time stole the joy we were hiding.
but i am in love and this baby is yours.”

and i don’t wanna live in this light
let your darkness just cover my eyes
and i’m trying to get myself clean
but it’s all i can do to just scream
