And I lapse into the grasp of an overriding obsession
And I get sick as I watch my interests fall into suspension

 Stealth soldiers, Creeping around your palm
It's hard, hard to understand  Little victories won creeping around your hand

The sickness has taken hold through violent, blurted syllables
 Escape my mouth under my breath 
The voice of pricking dread is whispering insistent in my ear
My paranoia galvanized by your gaze, so austere 


I pinned your crest to my chest, hoping it might start to look right  There was hushed talk of young boy's corpse lying face down in some river 
His hands used to move like mine
I can't stand myself this morning, i am practically that boy
No strength to endure, Ghostly insecure, Pallid through lack of choice
