Passion Within His Rib Cage – Lyrics

He houses a passion within his rib cage
Dying to escape
Through glistening tears
Through shallow breaths
And hollow words
To be seen beneath his eyes
And taken from his lips
Off the tip of his tongue

He houses a heart inside his chest
Treasure buried deeply
Longing for the touch
Of a burning love
Beating synchronized
That reaches deep
To hold him
And match the words on his lips
With the tip of a tongue

There is a passion within his rib cage
Dying to escape
Through watered lashes
And cracking words
Unlocked by your touch
While locking eyes

He houses a passion within his rib cage
Dying to escape
Shredding knuckles burn against brick walls
Feathers fall from bleeding pillows
All the while with
Shattered glass-cut lines in his cheeks

There’s never pain on the outside
When your heart’s severed from your nerves
Take my hand, hold it tighter
Death is being alone on the moon
You take me there
Let me take you there

-Zach
