lyrics

Formaldehyde by Northern Allies

There are things I could say
Counter moves I could make
Or I can just take it

The shot to the jaw
The smashing of jars
Our organs inside
Formaldehyde

We both adore
The tearing apart
The other life in fiction
Your pose on a windowsill
Would we be free to stitch
Our hearts back in
But the chemicals are too strong
And your scent is all wrong

It's the same shape
It's the same four chambers
It's the same march of time
Until we die
Formaldehyde

This lightning can bring us to life
The storm will erase our tracks
But even if we outrun them
We’re still just a stitch up
Cadavers all mixed up
I can't feel your neck bolts
Without feeling mine


The promises don’t last long
With a pulse already gone

We will stay the same shape
We will dust the jars
We will march in silent time
Until we die
Formaldehyde

There are things I could say
Times I should stay away
Or I can just take it
All the sadness below
In the undertow
We had to know
Formaldehyde

We both adore
The tearing apart
The lies that we tell
To the moon and stars
In ten or so years
When this is a dream
We'll always have the jars
Until we die
