lifeblood: songs: lyrics: what are you like


today my mind has drawn a blank
i canvas you to color this in
there's no gas left in the tank
you've always got your engine running
you've got no whip but
the beast lays down
and feeds upon the rest he's finally found

what are you like
my open door revolver
what are you like
my go to problem solver
you shine a light in the darkest
corners of my mind
what are you like
you're that kind

cover mirrors with a cloth
(cover mirrors with a cloth)
i'm getting superstitious lately
(you don't ever brush it off)
but you don't ever brush it off
(you uncover me to safety)
you uncover me to safety
and while i'm sitting on this couch
you're up and figuring it out

what are you like
my open door revolver
what are you like
my go to problem solver
you shine a light in the darkest
corners of my mind
what are you like

the greek chorus of our little play
you explain me when i act this way
and as we go along
the unwritten song breaks through
and it's all about you

what are you like
you're an open door
what are you like
you're the best and more
what are you like
you're a sacred text
what are you like
you're what's coming next
what are you like
are you my open door
what are you like
are you my open door
what are you like
are you my open door
what are you like
