My heart's a balloon
Lifted by a violent typhoon
In this breeze I swoon
Swept up in your monsoon

Glazed eyes stare
Your lips need a wing and a prayer
Smiling through her affair

Volcanoes in Bloom
Explode into our room
Kissed you way too soon
And we never made it to the moon

Hold me like you would if I were him
But you go limp
'Cause you see, he's right behind me


from Chimaera, released March 5, 2013
