Lyrics

 Tear it down
 Strip the layers off
 My turpentine
 Old paint, old looks
 Cover up the past
 White heat, white light
 Super white bones
 Bones of you and I
 
     Pure if I... Can't you help me?
     Pure if I... Won't you help me?
     Purify you and I
     Purify you and I
     Pure if I... Can't you help me?
     Pure if I... Won't you help me?
     You and I purify
 
 Truth and dare
 Peeling back the skin
 Acid wash
 Ghost white
 Ultra clean
 Wanna be skeleton
 Clear eyes
 Diamond eyes
 Strip the past of mine
 My sweet turpentine
 
 I can find the dirt on anything
 I can find the dirt on anything
 
 I ain't dancing with your skeletons
 I ain't dancing with what might have been
