In Vein Lyrics

My point of reference makes me afraid to begin convincing,
But you might as well just change your name.
'Cause I only recognize this shadow,
Kinda like a superhero with nobody's best interests in mind.

Now there's blood in the waters, that I squeezed from this stone, here
And we turned into our cheap wine.
And I swallowed every drop, yes, I could feel my stomach rotting,
You were so supportive as I drank through the pain.

You recognize this shape, it's the back of your hand. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
And I don't wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.

Dove off the deep side platform, jack-knifed and bone dry, I hit floor
One broken ankle saved my name.
And this eraser burn, I dig in deep at every turn.
It keeps getting darker and the fear stays the same.

You recognize this shape, it's the back of your hand. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
And I don't wanna be the one who takes this place,
don't wanna be the one who takes,
I don't wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.

(Whoa-oh whoa-oh, Whoa-oh whoa-oh oh [x2])

I don't wanna take, I don't wanna take this place, no.
I don't want to take, I don't wanna take this place, no.
No-oh, no-oh. I don't wanna take this place, no.
No-oh, no-oh. I don't wanna take this place, no.

You recognize this shape, it's the back of your hand. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
And I don't wanna be the one who takes this place,
don't wanna be the one who takes,
I don't wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.
