Lyrics

I’ll take care of you if you take care of me, but I won’t take care of myself
Cause I’m a goddamn beautiful mess

I have become the person I was changing into
When the world was shaping me in faceless fornicating factories
So hoisting sandstone sails I burrowed deep into my ego
Where the wind beneath the Earth could scatter every faithless memory

Oh how I remember long
The passage of a million souls
With cutlery they clang and sung to
Drown out the drowning ones

I’ll take care of you if you take care of me, but I can’t take care of myself
Cause I’m a goddamn beautiful mess, oh I’m a goddamn beautiful

Messing with the goals of all the good and lovely people
Asking why would there be evil when the power sleeps at the masters feet
And small language discrepancies would make this roof unravel
That’s why I’ve built the rafters of the most absurd astronomy

Asking why I choose to smoke
I say I’ll stop when I grow old
But I don’t plan to go that far and
Growing up is for dying stars

So I’ll take care of you if you take care of me, but I just can’t take care of myself
Cause I’m a goddamn beautiful mess, oh I’m a goddamn beautiful
It’s never really clear to me how I renew my virginity, but with you it always seems like a start
So I hear you in my heart, and then I tear you from my

Heart is not so secret from your face is where she reads it
And she’s wondering what simple things could make you grow so silent
If you could only figure how a heart could grow so fissured
Half love turns to rain and the other bottled sympathy

But oh how high your garden grows
With one rose for every forty thorns
If only rain was more exact or
Your love just more intact then

I’d take care of you

Then I’d take care of you, and you’d take care of me, and we’d both take real good care of ourselves
Oh it’s odd how I love this mess
It’s just a goddamn beautiful mess
I guess we all should feel pretty blessed
