Hung off the edge of the back end of January
I was concerned that you'd wake to find me gone
Struck by the morning light I was made incendiary
A torch so bright I seemed a nephew to the sun

And I hoped that you would remember
'Cause I knew that you couldn't remain
And I wished it could still be December
When that snow would've stifled the flame

Your tongue's a fulcrum that rests beneath your teeth a lever
They lift me up above my will to do you harm
I set aflame this machine so you can see me better
I take a burning steel and touch it to my arm

And I wish that I didn't remember
That look on your face when you came
And I wish it could still be December
When the snow made it all look the same

Made it all the same

All the same
