lyrics

There are some advantages
To sucking all the light out
To stumble through the streets in a New York Blackout
With your palms out
For money or fortune or anything that brings you hope
A quarter, a candybox to cope
One man's trash is another man's dope, oh

And honey if I didn't feel so black I'd feel white
And if I had one less heavy heart I think I could fly

Even the major keys sound sad to me
A feeling so black that your eyes would have to strain to see it
There's so much gravity
All the brevity is lost on me
But I keep trying, I keep trying
To shed this vantablack, to shed this vantablack

I measure my patience
In the number of outpatient visits
I'm used to my friends wearing blue plastic name tags
On their right wrists
And I don't know why, I don't know why
We empty orange bottles so we don't die
When our emotions so endanger our lives
We are bottled ships under the watch of irresponsible eyes
And honey if I didn't feel so black I'd feel white
And if I had one less heavy heart I think I could fly

Even the major keys sound sad to me
A feeling so black that your eyes would have to strain to see it
There's so much gravity
All the brevity is lost on me
But I keep trying, I keep trying
To shed this vantablack, to shed this vantablack

When you stand in the sunlight
You will cast a shadow
The brighter the future
The darker the battle
You may wear lead shoes and sing the blues but...

Even the major keys sound sad to me
A feeling so black that your eyes would have to strain to see it
There's so much gravity
All the brevity is lost on me
But I keep trying, I keep trying
To shed this vantablack, to shed this vantablack
To shed this vantablack
To shed, To shed, To shed
This vantablack
vantablack
