lyrics

Let me in from the dark
I’m not frightened I’m just sick
& tired of playing this part
And if you offer yourself
I’ll take my chance and
Beat these words into shining swords
But they’re still blunt in my hands

This is why I can’t lie
Though you would never guess
I’d grind your thoughts in my mouth
And spit them out again
With shards of tooth
And makeshift sympathy

Threads of infinite life
Wrapped around an effigy
That’s infamous in my eyes
And I still shiver inside

Blinking in the brake-lights
I thought you’d never guess
That with my flashing canines
I’d take you down a peg
And eat your heart
With tasteful empathy

We wake up with
The stink of love
Clinging to us
But when you fly
Into the distance
I struggle to see you
