Lyrics

all my branches break
when you go and tell me
your body can't take
the nights of being lonely
i'm racing through the dark
a headless saint bernard
to cauterize the scars
that line your dirty heart
what the hell can i do
when you whisper "punish me"
snap me like a tiger trap
harvest all my honey
i'm bracing for the shiver
string me in your quiver
aim for the skyline
but shoot me in the river
and terror quits me
when you palpitate
confess directly
sadness spreads your legs
i contemplate the toll
turning diamonds into coal
traveling down this hole
throwing conscience to the wind
that spins

it's not a path that
i ever thought that
i would traffic to get you back
our panic will burst
like birds full of aspirin
we're not to blame
it's the same as it was never before

i'm not a scoundrel
it's just a suit that fits me
cut tight and breathes nice
maintains insanity
never thought i'd be like
a hunger with no appetite
a hunter with no urge for thrills
the type of man i despise
so i ask the devil (sir)
how to learn to handle (sir)
a woman with a shovel (sir)
digging downward spirals
he tells me what to do
how to strut my cool
polish up my boots
with all your lover's blood

it's just
it's not a road that
i ever thought that i would
traffic to get you back
our panic will burst
like birds full of aspirin
we're not to blame
it's the same as it was never before

and i'll roll in the trenches
bayonet just what i need
hate you more than anything
'cause you're everything to me
so you've met your match
you don't even know it yet
challenge? this ain't challenge
when evils got your edge

this time
it's not a road that
i ever thought that i would
traffic to get you back
our panic will burst
like birds full of aspirin
we're are to blame
it's the same as it was never before
