Track 7 of 10.



You wouldn't come out
So I had to tear you
And you make the strangest shapes
Of blood upon my pillow
And I held your pieces in my hand
I waited for you to tell everything

The only time that scent is noticed
Is when you get it on my skin
And is this alright to wear today?
I knew I would like you
If you had to get entangled
So get down into your water

You burn like a strawberry
Just like that in my mouth
And skin so white and clear
And the door was closed
But everything was there

Your clothes have disappeared
Into the floor, into the room
And we kiss to stay alive

"How does that feel?"

Your clothes have disappeared
Into the floor, into the room
And we breathe to stay alive

"How does that feel?"
