Yellow Flicker Beat
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 fires find 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, oh
This is the start of how it ever 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 colours disappear
I never watch the stars, there's so much down here
So I just try, keep up with the
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, oh
This is the start of how it ever 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 colours disappear
I never watch the stars, there's so much down here
So I just try, keep up with the
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
