Tessellate Lyrics

Bite chunks out of me

My heart still thumps as I bleed
And all your friends come sniffing

Triangles are my favorite shape
Three points where two lines meet
Toe to toe, back to back, let's go, my love;...

    I think the narrator cheats on his current relationship and tells his lover to be with someone else after one last night. Then the narrator gets jealous of his lovers new partner and goes to kill them but accidentally kills the original lover

    This song stands for a person trying to snuff out the flame of a past lover by being in a new relationship. It's a love triangle... a love/hate relationship within one's self. Losing bits and pieces of what makes you you, knowing it, and trying to scrape together whats left.
