verse 1




    

 C                      D                       Em
there's a tear in the fabric of your favorite dress


                     G

and i'm sneaking glances.


C                             D

looking for the patterns in static


                     Em                 G

they start to make sense the longer i'm at it.

View Just Lyrics...

There's a tear in the fabric of your favorite dress
And I'm sneaking glances.
Looking for the patterns in static
They start to make sense the longer I'm at it.

[Chorus]
Ivory lines lead

Your heart is a river that flows from your chest
Through every organ
Your brain is the dam
And I am the fish who can't reach the core.

[Chorus]

Oh, instincts are misleading
You shouldn't think what you're feeling
They don't tell you what you know you should want.

[Chorus: x2]

Oh, instincts are misleading
You shouldn't think what you're feeling
They don't tell you want you know you should want.

[Chorus: x2]
