Harsh Your Mellow (Feat. Neon Music)

lyrics

Cessation of sleep
don't stay up so late
you make a promise you can’t keep
I just wanna knock so hard on the dream it wakes me
is this the abyss?
or a dilapidated kiss?

I don’t wanna harsh your mellow
but are you growing wings
or do they drag?

I wasn’t raised in a barn
I was raised by the sun
there was blood in my milk
my mother taught me to run
and ever since then I’ve been fine
and ever since then I’ve been fine

I don’t wanna harsh your mellow
but are you growing wings
or do they drag?

SAMPLE:
I always find I feel like a mouse confronted with a cobra
there's something hypnotic about you
can you explain it and where did it come from?

I’m the whole mountain the whole enchilada
If loose lips sink ships i’m silence’s mantra
I can’t help but drown in your syllable slaughter
I listen soft, I’m the rains daughter and
partially I got a pocket full of timeless and i’m buried in the light
partially I, firefly in a broken jar but i can’t seem to get out

Love letter to wings: open
love letter to mouth: speak or be spoken for
love letter to sky: kite
love letter to kite: sky

cus I meant it when I said I’m dead
I don’t know if you heard me write silk on a stone page
I meant it when I said I’m dead (serious)
don’t know if you heard me write silk on a stone page

Love letter to doors: open
love letter to eyes: see before sewn shut
love letter to hate: see ya
love letter to fire: one day you’ll put me out

Talk to me, have mercy on me, operator of all I see
I know something even I don’t know
deep in the depths make me an echo
make me an echo
