lyrics

i found you when this sordid lightning
struck you from the sky
you couldn’t even feel me bite ya
you didn’t think twice

i clutch you in my arms so tightly
unwrapped and unwound
as gentle a sleeping baby
you barely make a sound

they poke you with their morbid writing
you read it on the walls
and feeble-footed feet move forward
and pray for us aaaiiii

you wallowed in the so so so so so so

i whistle to you from the sidewalk
i said come over here (hahaha)
your face was painted with reluctance
“hey man, i’ll i wanted was a beer” (hahaha)

i punched you in your gut so subtly
but quickly eased your pain
i seized the moment, carpe diem
and burrowed in your brain

i held you in my arms so lightly
scribbling notes into the sand
as expected, like a fucking moron
you let the firecracker blow up inside your hand

ahh, did you fight or did you scream?
did it fuck you up in the head?
did you feel it when i bit your hand and encumbered your fucking soul?
and showed you things you ain’t never seen
...
let’s all end this now
let’s all end this now
let’s all end this now
you won’t
you won’t
you won’t return again
again
again
you won’t return again
