Mars, the God of War is watching over me
So passively, from the twinkling scenery
Mars, the God of War, pretending so serene
He's keeping his hands clean
While I make war on this war machine
A careful chosen word, designed to hurt
But will it stir some new philosophy?
Retreat or be defeated, baby

I wish that I could wish you well
I wish that I could wish you well
Instead I'm hitting my head and hitting backspace on
"Can't you just go to hell?"

All of your recall requires optometry (requires optometry)
'Cause what I want to see ('cause what I want to see)
Is you seeing clearly
Tenures of regret and my good memory (my good memory)
Spent under tyranny (spent under tyranny)
It ends tonight in quiet steam
Be careful where you reach for sympathy
'Cause it won't be where you got it before
Retreat, rinse and repeat it, baby

I wish that I could wish you well
I wish that I could wish you well
Instead I'm hitting my head and hitting backspace on
"Can't you just go to hell?" (Can't you just go to hell?)

Position changing, never engaging
It's not just the dawn that's breaking
(It's not just the dawn that's breaking)
I'll keep hating the red star fading
And it's not just the dawn that's breaking
It's not just the dawn that breaks

I wish that I could wish you well
I wish that I could wish you well
Instead I'm hitting my head and hitting backspace on
"Can't you just go to hell?"
I wish that I could wish you well
I wish that I could wish you well
Instead I'm hitting my head and hitting backspace on
"Can't you just go to hell?" (Can't you just go to hell?)
