lyrics

I pass my limbs through the doors of a pawn shop a left off Fretz and Mill
I did my best to batter away these bones
He had no use for mine, he had his own
I left my body there on the cold porcelain tile
He screeched he was a man, not the kind to steal

Death fell upon the birds and I was left only with my thirst
When my head once knew my hands
Coursing strength for tip to wrist

It's starting to seem that lust's starting to taste bland
And I'm only subject to the desire of my hands

If they had the strength I'd keep my fist so tight
You and everyone else would never fit between them
Smearing the filth under my shirt
Its death would be assured
I'd know control and maybe my will would be full

I watch water well from her ducts before I knew what she meant
Falling through the holes in my plans, my palms caught onto nothing
To slow my descent
Her eyes welled for the line she began to draw was no longer missing
Self-pitched balls in the front lawn

It only began to dissipate
The atoms of her ink forcing themselves inches away

They sped up so fast
She saw no shape
Until they didn't hold the weight
To keep themselves on the page

If they had the strength I'd keep my fist so tight
You and everyone else would never fit between them
Smearing the filth under my shirt
Its death would be assured
I'd know control and maybe my will would be full

(noise)

I've done evil letting it from me
I've done evil taking advantage of what you saw
You've done evil taking it from me
You've done evil stuck in the clutch of a stubborn jaw
