Blacklisted - Houdini Blues

[Verse 1]
I see you there with your long black hair
Glowing viper eyes and pale skin
The one who took the father of my friend
Crawled under his skin and made him beg for it

Or when you stole my friend
Put the rope around their neck and kicked the chair from their feet
I awoke when you tried to take my brother
The right pill couldn't put him right to sleep
[Chorus]
I'm floating on my own
I'm floating on my own
I'm floating on my own
(So just let me go)
I know what hiding is
Know what surviving is
I know what dying is
(I tried to kiss her twice)
So, you are a magician? Or so they say
Well perform light as a feather stiff as a board
Sold out shows for life until death
But somehow I'm not impressed

[Verse 2]
Take off your mask, no need for costumes
And look me in my face
I was there when you dug her grave
And stripped her of her dancer's grace

Remember I laid in her bed
And held her hand when you made her feel she wasn't thin enough
While her hair fell out and her bones showed
Made her believe she didn't want to live enough

[Chorus]
I'm floating on my own
I'm floating on my own
I'm floating on my own
(So just let me go)
I know what hiding is
Know what surviving is
I know what dying is
(I tried to kiss her twice)
So, you are a magician? Or so they say
Well perform light as a feather stiff as a board
Sold out shows for life until death
But somehow I'm not impressed

This dark needs to be illuminated
I'll gladly kick over these candles to light up this room
I've flirted with you my whole life
You stayed out of reach, just close enough so your touch would loom
When everyone around me grew into
Mothers and fathers, brides and grooms
I asked you to dance but you denied me the chance
You took my friend
Shot through his windshield car, wrapped 'round a pole

[Chorus]
I'm floating on my own
I'm floating on my own
I'm floating on my own
(So just let me go)
I know what hiding is
Know what surviving is
I know what dying is
(I tried to kiss her twice)
So, you are a magician? Or so they say
Well perform light as a feather stiff as a board
Sold out shows for life until death
But somehow I'm not impressed
