    Lyrics:

    [Verse 1]
    I stepped into a room of clocks that all told different times
    I stepped into a mirrored world that mirrored all our crimes
    You keep picking at the scab and I'll keep selling the plaster
    You keep telling me that I'm bad
    But I keep on getting better faster

    [Pre-Chorus]
    You hold me down and you hold me up
    You can't communicate
    You brought me up just to bring me down
    I've nothing left to say

    [Chorus]
    I've lost, I've lost my innocence
    I've found my self-belief
    And in a cup of loneliness
    I've found instant relief

    [Post-Chorus]
    You hold me down, you hold me up
    Oh Daddy, are we out of luck?
    You brought me up to bring me down
    You shut me in, you shut me up

    [Verse 2]
    I'm gone, I'm gone to heaven
    I'm gone, I'm gone to hell
    If nobody could see I'd hold my hand out to be held

    [Pre-Chorus]
    You hold me down and you hold me up
    You can't communicate
    You brought me up just to bring me down
    I've nothing left to say

    [Chorus]
    I've lost, I've lost my innocence
    I've found my self-belief
    And in a cup of loneliness
    I've found instant relief

    [Post-Chorus]
    You hold me down, you hold me up
    Oh Daddy, are we out of luck?
    You brought me up to bring me down
    You shut me in, you shut me up

    [Bridge]
    You keep picking at the scab
    So I'll keep on selling the plaster
    And you, you think I'm bad
    So I'll keep on getting better faster

    [Chorus]
    I've lost, I've lost my innocence
    I've found my self-belief
    And in a cup of loneliness
    I've found instant relief

    [Post-Chorus]
    You hold me down, you hold me up
    Oh Daddy, are we out of luck?
    You brought me up to bring me down
    You shut me in, you shut me up

    [Chorus 2]
    I've lost, I've lost my confidence
    I found my self-belief
    And in a cup of loneliness
    I sailed a thousand seas

    [Post-Chorus 2]
    You tell me what to say and wear
    You say that it's because you care
    But I prefer to be alone
    Than live a life that's not my own

                I found this song by accident. I never listened to much of her before (I'm more of a metal fan but even before this I thought she was a pretty good artist and had a couple of songs off of Froot) but this is the song that really won me over.

                  this song seems like it meets in the middle of her first three albums. it’s like a mix of all three

                              This is a great song but I see why it went unreleased. It doesn’t fit the sound of any albums.

                                            This is true marina, he fear+love album was garbage with no wit or charm and every single song sounding the same

                                              @Reggie Llllucccass Too many co-writers. Marina's at her best when she does her own thing, instead of going for the mainstream.

                                              darkchocolat her new music is trash, every song sounds the exact fucking same. Long and boring with no witty lyrics. Just overly girly melodies with no change. The true marina is hidden away under this pop bull shit. Sad to see

                                              No, the love+fear album is true marina as well as this. She has changed as a person and those songs are amazing

                                                    What do picking scab and selling plaster mean? I google translated it but haven't found out anything sensible

                                                    I love how different her songs are. They’re so dark, yet they sound happy. The darker the meaning, the happier it gets. They mean so much more than the songs we have on the radio today. (I’m not dragging down certain artists, they have their own unique style..) I just love how Marina writes her songs. ♥️
