My point of reference makes me afraid to begin convincing
But you might as well just change your name
'Cause I only recognize this shadow
Kinda blackened superhero with nobody's best interests in mind

Now there's blood in the water, that heart bleeds from this stone here
And we turned into our cheap wine
And I swallowed every drop, yes, I could feel my stomach rot
And you were so supportive as I drank through the pain

[Chorus: ]
You recognize this shape, it's the back of your hand. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
And I don't wanna be the one who takes this place, in vein

Dove off that east side platform, jack-knifed a bone dry floor
One broken ankle save my name
And this eraser burn, I dig in deep at every turn
It keeps getting darker and the fear stays the same

[Chorus: ]

(Whoa-oh whoa-oh, Whoa-oh whoa-oh oh [x2])

I don't wanna take, I don't wanna take this place, no
I don't want to take, I don't wanna take this place, no
No-oh, no-oh. I don't wanna take this place, no
No-oh, no-oh. I don't wanna take this place, no

[Chorus: ]
