You're a child but you're malicious

(*verse*)
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

(Em)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
