Susanne Sundfør - The Silicone Veil lyrics

I'm a larva wrapped in silk
I am dying in burning flesh
Let me out, let me ache
Let me out, let me ache and itch

Get me out of this suit
I go to a funeral every day
I follow these people around
I follow these people like a rat's tail

I carry their caskets, I sing them goodnight
They're better off without me

Beauty is poisonous
Disruptive
Oh heaven must be an iron rose
Unfolding

Oh let me in,
Let me out,
Let me in,
Let me out!

This is a retirement
From plumbing the veins of rats and kings
Let the stars be my eyes, then
Unchain the knuckles and latches, unbutton my wrists

My skin so thin you can see black holes within
My eyes so clear they light up the sky
And sometimes I'll bend into the silicone veil
And enter this world again as a ghost

Beauty is poisonous
Disruptive
Oh heaven must be an iron rose
Unfolding

Oh let me in,
Let me out,
Let me in,
Let me out!

Let me out!
