    Lyrics

    'Porcelain' - Thursday

    City of blue tile
    figure in ceramics
    where we reach out
    grab for porcelain

    But it's too fragile to hold
    and it shatters in our hands in time
    seasons will seal these shards into
    slits that denote your wrists

    Death is the answer
    calculations composed
    of motions that are the same
    secret and different
    a missing alphabet with a message for us

    When people die
    they take a piece of us with them
    and holes in clouds are minutes passing
    resend this line and sever all ties
    the skyline unfolds into explanation

    But sometimes words give up and
    silently walk off the edge of the page and here
    the cry opens up
    reveals the world inside
    the crack in the porcelain
    the crack in the porcelain
    the crack in the porcelain

    The silent line, of skylit eyes show
    the silent line, of skylit eyes show
    the silent line, of skylit eyes show
    (show me death it's up there, shine more brightly than lives down here)

    the silent line, of skylit eyes show
    (show me death it's up there, shine more brightly than lives down here)
    (try and live)

    the silent line, of skylit eyes show
    (show me death it's up there, shine more brightly than lives down here)
    (try and live)

    the silent line, of skylit eyes show
    (show me death it's up there, shine more brightly than lives down here)
    (try and live)

    the silent line...
    (show me death it's up there...)
    (try...)

    When people die
    they take a piece of us with them
    and holes in clouds are minutes passing
    resend this line and sever all ties
    the skyline unfolds into explanation
    explanation
    explanation

    Try and live
    Try and live
    Try and live
    Try and... live... yeah... live.... live.... live...
