Marrow - Audiotree Live Version

Verse 1

There's a thin crack in my coffee cup, a scuff received by time
Fans in all directions like a scar from lightning's bite
I can't shake off the shadows, but I cling hard to the light
I was looking for a reason while my heart itches to fight

Before chorus

It eats at all my marrow
It carves away my mind
My bravery is compromised
My fear has made me blind

Chorus

Sit easy, tiger, you'll get it next time around
Your silver bones, you'll give them back to the ground
Those easy winters never get written down
It's decimation, it breaks us inside and out
Breaks us inside and out

Verse 2

I was born in fever, little fists and little rage
I fought through a thunderhead to reach a fragile age
Carved up all my memories til they crumpled up like shame
They begged to be a part of me and begged to have a name

Before chorus

It ate at all my marrow
It carved away my mind
My bravery is compromised
And fear it made me blind

Chorus

Sit easy, tiger, you'll get it next time around
Your silver bones, you'll give them back to the ground
Those easy winters never get written down
It's decimation, it breaks us inside and out

Bridge

Breaks us inside and out
Breaks us inside and out
Breaks us inside and out
Breaks us inside and out
Breaks us inside and out

Verse 3

I follow Adriane's thread until I fall apart
Paperbacks for lungs, a broken kickdrum for a heart
I seem full of life, but Mother Nature takes her toll
And she'll take what she wants and in her way she'll leave you whole

Before chorus

She ate at all my marrow
She carved away my mind
And all my fears were compromised
I left them all behind

Chorus

Sit easy, tiger, you'll get it next time around
Your silver bones, you'll give them back to the ground
Those easy winters never get written down
It's decimation, it breaks us inside and out

Outro

Breaks us inside and out
Breaks us inside and out
