Little Secrets (Passion Pit)

When I came down the dawn poured into me I shook 'em up the walls came crumbling My thin skin trembling with these salty wounds My stolen gold inside the emperor's tomb Now painting rainbows on my ugly face I build this cardboard neighborhood's disgrace But I ascend and serve my feverish need Within the confines of such chemistry It's the way I see Everything I need It's no way to be Let this be our little secret No one needs to know we're feeling Higher and higher and higher Higher and higher and higher But I feel alive, oh, I feel it in me Up and up we keep on climbing Higher and higher and higher Higher and higher and higher My face blew up at such a casual sight The smattered colors of ecstatic fright The rush above me to oblivion Outlining wet sidewalks in halogen Have you ever felt so goddamned strong? How come it takes some people so damn long? He turned to squeeze the lemon juice to rain The citrus drawing out the scene in stains Watch the basin drain As your lifelines wane And you can't explain As your friends complain You've caused all this pain And you proudly shamed Your whole family's name Let this be our little secret No one needs to know we're feeling Higher and higher and higher Higher and higher and higher But I feel alive, oh, I feel it in me Up and up we keep on climbing Higher and higher and higher Higher and higher and higher Mother, I can tell what you've been thinking Staring at the stars on your ceiling Thinking once there was power that you were wielding But now I've hit the mark, stabbing at the dark And I cannot help but ignore the people staring at my scars Let this be our little secret No one needs to know we're feeling Higher and higher and higher Higher and higher and higher But I feel alive, oh, I feel it in me Up and up we keep on climbing Higher and higher and higher Higher and higher and higher
