lyrics

We may have met
Or we may have fallen
To mutual connection
Stuttering and stalling
Perhaps we share something
But please don't get confused
We hate to be tortured
But love the abuse

If you think that we're perfect
It's only this time
I'll write X's and O’s
All down your spine
And if you could let go
You could be mine
I'm the devil in red
But you're colorblind

We could compare talent
Or gather our shame
We both savor self-hatred
But your never to blame
We’ll pop and we’ll pull against each other’s restraints
It never works
It doesn’t count
If I can’t hear your complaints

If you think that we're perfect
It's only this time
I'll write X's and O’s
All down your spine
And if you could let go
You could be mine
I'm the devil in red

We think without speaking
But never set a pace
We’ll pop and we’ll pull
Against each other’s restraints
It never works, it never counts
It never ends, it’s all the same
If I can’t hear your fucking complaints

If you think that we're perfect
It's only this time
I'll write X's and O’s
All down your spine
And if you could let go
You could be mine
I'm the devil in red

If you think that we're perfect
It's only this time
I'll write X's and O’s
All down your spine
And if you could let go
You could be mine
I'm the devil in red
But you're colorblind
