Nova
Iko Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

i have fever in my chemicalls
you left me here among the skeletons
and gravity can only hold so long
all the heroes here are dead and gone
i thought i had endless enigies
send my love to the authorities
and pull all the stitches watch the world
as it hinges
don't shut me down don't shut me down
keep me alive

the panic button is worn
just the writing's left which says-
"hit this when everything's wrong"
everything's wrong

don't shut me down don't shut me down
keep me alive

you're the one my soul craves
you're the one my soul craves





don't shut me down
keep me alive
