LyricsEdit

I'm a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm

And the scars that mark my body, they're silver and gold

My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones

It keeps my veins hot, the fire's found a home in me

I move through town, I’m quiet like a fight

And my necklace is of rope, I tie it and untie it



And now people talk to me, but nothing ever hits home

People talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes

I’m done with it (ooh)



This is the start of how it all ends

They used to shout my name, now they whisper it

I'm speeding up and this is the

Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

We’re at the start, the colors disappear

I never watch the stars, there’s so much down here

So I just try to keep up with them

Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart


I dream all year, but they're not the sweet kinds

And the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time



And now people talk to me I'm slipping out of reach now

People talk to me, and all their faces blur

But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison

And I'm locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me

I’m done with it (ooh)



This is the start of how it all ends

They used to shout my name, now they whisper it

I'm speeding up and this is the

Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

We’re at the start, the colors disappear

I never watch the stars, there’s so much down here

So I just try to keep up with them

Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart



And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat

Sparking up my heart

And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat-beat-beat-beat
