Oh your lips when they move They move like scalpels, baybeh Your tongue, fast, smooth Oh your lips when they move Those kisses, like shrapnel shrapnel shrapnel SHRAPNEL The only way to truly get to know you is to dissect you, baybeh Inch by inch Layer by layer Slit by slit Brick by brick Piece by piece by piece by piece by piece by PIECES! Her every word a riot Delivered with predatory perfection Too much too much too much too much Of everything is never enough The want the want the want the want now WAIT Had to shun the touch, shun the touch And dude, I needed it bad, just not all at once Not all at once
2.
Tie the knot wear the mask pull the rope hang rot in the sun for as long as time stands still right now darling right now darling dance dance show us bruised bent waiting waiting gagged bound happy happy it’s a go-go knife go-go knife (I said GO-GO KNIFE) late nite show

Nature can sure be dazzling Like a cockroach you never failed to keep up How could someone so obviously blank always land on their feet? Darwinism never really applied to you No, Darwinism never really applied to you Somehow you slipped through the fence Leaving in your wake a sea of irreversible mistakes The rest of us had to go through the rubble… And look for survivors! I’ve got a tumor I’ve got a tumor I’ve got a tumor and it’s got a name You’ve been the weight on my shoulders You’ve been the knot in my gut You’ve been the “less” in my sleepless A mere passenger going through the motions just to get by (There’s nothing symbiotic about that) I’ve got a tumor I’ve got a tumor I’ve got a tumor and it’s got a name Cut off an arm, cut off a leg, then take a rest, off with the head instead You’ll always grow back again

A familiar sense of purpose rushed over him He felt raw, defined There was sweat on his lips He had her kiss them Oh, the shivers down that spine They all acted like he’d expect He knew what came next A definition, his piece in the puzzle For each time seemingly closer closer closer to the core And now, again, he was whole But she was down down down down, out for the count But he was whole She was ruined He was ready She was down down down down, out for the count In for the kill OVER
5.
So you’re tired of being left a secret and not much more You said you’d let go Pitching all too familiar stories Variations on a melodrama Only different rooms Petty morals adding inches to every past mistake In tiny cities with bigger wounds So you’re tired of being left a secret and not much more You said you’d let go Every clue just might be the truth Tasted every tongue Fingers clutching every neck Sweet nothings lurking in every bed Every womb is a tomb Memorabilia will only slow you down Should’ve gotten out, but you can’t Each breath a ghasp Every word a whisper The tide is rising (You said you’d let go)
