lyrics

i guess fluidity scares me
nothing’s the same as it
was half a year ago

make me
an ocean of identity
who cares what’s inside of me

i guess it
just goes
to show

i guess
nobody really
knows

my kingdom for a kindness
my kingdom for apologies
forever falling apart and starting again
and it hurts when it shouldn’t, it hurts,

my kingdom for a breath
a welcome pause in all the screaming
what happens when the death
doesn’t want the grieving

my kingdom for a body
to see what i believe
a body as a kingdom
to do with as i please
please

call me as i like
as i like,
(YOU COLOSSAL ASSHOLE)

you can’t say
i can’t build myself
into what i want because

WE
DESERVE
WHAT WE
CREATE,
AND WE
CREATE
OURSELVES

my kingdom for a kindness
my kingdom for apologies
forever falling apart and starting again
and it hurts when it shouldn’t, it hurts,

my kingdom for a breath
a welcome pause in all the screaming
what happens when the death
doesn’t want the grieving

my kingdom for a body
to see what i believe
a body as a kingdom
to do with as i please

and what do you know of kindness
what do you know of apology
what do you know of bodies
what do you know of me

i’ll leave you to grieving
the person that i used to be
i’ll leave you to believing
i’m nobody

because i know who i am
i know who i am
(my kingdom for you)
