Lyrics

the way that she cuts through a room
makes me want to exhume the madness
that flits between our lips
like dynamite and a moistened wick
you feel like a firefly
who's lamp is unlit and smothered by
the bed, the sweat, the dawns of the past
the taste of the small of an old lover's laugh
you bust your bank trying to build a better
bang for your buck DNA to out distance
the tethers that you're tied to
the family lines that will hang you out to dry
and you wonder why

our hearts are such hungry beasts
the harder we starve them
the more all consuming
and i understand they'll never find the love that they need
so we try to run them into the ground

as i watch her unpack her hair
like stacks of black pyramids
oh i smile like a crack in a dam
or a condemned chair to electric man

she wants stability
what's that? i can't hear you
she wants stability
so i'll go and buy her a pony
she wants stability
i'll lay my head on a goddamn platter
she wants stability
but in the end it doesn't really matter 'cause

our hearts are such hungry beasts
the harder we starve them
the more all consuming
and i understand they'll never find the love that they need
so we try to run them into

our heads are bottled up by the most heathen thoughts
our bodies hang in limbo of what we need and what we want

she's a cutter but i love her just the same
undercover but i never learned her real name
she's a cutter but i love her just the same
undercover but i never learned her real name
she's a cutter but i love her just the same
undercover but i never learned her real name
i'm an old man only getting older
the world gets younger as i push boulders
