signals over the air lyrics – thursday

“signals over the air”

this is what you see when you look in my direction:
incandescent corsets draw eyes tight like wires.
this is how it feels,
calling out but no one even hears

the signals that we send over the air
over the air
over the air
over the air.

when you say my name,
i want to split it from your lips
and hide like whispers in the rain.
when you say (when you say) my name (when you say it)
i want to stop it in your lungs
and collect all of your blood to put in the radio.

is this how it feels
when you dont even fit into your own skin?
and its getting tighter,
every day i’m getting smaller
if i keep holding my breath i’m going to disappear.

when you say my name,
i want to split it from your lips
and hide like whispers in the rain.
when you say (when you say) my name (when you say it)
i want to stop it in your lungs
and collect all of your blood to put in the radio.

there’s no where to hide.
they stole the love from our lives to put the s*x on the radio.
there’s no where to hide.
they stole the love from our lives to put the s*x on.

if i keep holding my breath, all of this will fade away.
if you keep driving we’ll be lying in the wreck.
changing the shape,
folding like an envelope to keep each other in.
shattered gl*ss, broken looks, and mascara gets
washed away by windshield wiper blades
safe, safe

when you say (when you say) my name (when you say my name),
i want to split it from your lips
and hide like whispers in the rain.
when you say (when you say) my name (my name)
i want to stop it in your lungs
and collect all of your blood to put in the radio.

there’s no where to hide.
they stole the love from our lives to put the s*x on the radio.
there’s no where to hide.
they stole the love from our lives to put the s*x on the radio.
that’s where we hide
the love and lies and s*x, on the radio.
