lyrics

Everyone’s high on cloud
they lick and laugh out loud
and God’s nowhere to be found
guess I’ll get high in the closet now

But then I’m back to sleep
and there’s movement in the sheets
and there’s hair inside my mouth
and we're hot and happy now

But then I wake to this
a waking life abyss
so into the wind I piss
to record another miss

A song of nothingness
for the masses to dismiss
with a candy-coated kiss
and a “fuck-off” tail-flick hiss

But then your sun cuts through my mind
and my brain is burning blind
your wild sweat tastes like wine
and I rush to shut the blinds

But then the 1800's stirred
the loneliest number
I love myself, but god
damn my hand gets tired

My heart bursts through my eyes
when my mind paints passersby
in your skin and I’m baptized
‘neath a deer skull pen-ink prize

and now I want another drink
but I’m too sick to speak
so I’ve made to spitting teeth
hell, what’s just one more drink?
