Grey Matter


Lyrics & Info

Performances (81)

I hate you, I love you 
Leave, please don't go away 
Can't decide if I like your face 
Or if I wish it would stray

You're a child but you're malicious 
You're sweet but don't remember my name 
And heads you win and tails I'm lost 
And love equals pain

I am drifting without an anchor 
Through your ambiguous region 
A strange continent immune to all reason 
And I'm flattered by your grey matter

Inside my skin, I feel your tongue 
Telling me I'm dirty and licking my bones 
A surge against silence, a knife across a plate 
Makes the sound of need on hate

I am drifting without an anchor 
Through your ambiguous region 
A strange continent immune to all reason 
And I'm flattered by your grey matter 
And I do not understand why a woman can't just love a man

You're amusing you're a real cool show 
With your meat hooks and barbed wire carnival 
You got glitter in your pocket 
You got mothballs in your soul 
From too many false teeth and greasy flash bulbs

I am drifting without an anchor 
Through your ambiguous region 
A strange continent immune to all reason 
And I'm flattered by your grey matter

I love you 
I hate you
