lyrics

We coruscate with limbs. Crack-re-crack, our skin undone. I grow into you, roots hugging roots - two lovers melted in sin. I crawl to your eyes to explain the pain inside, (and with a single look that makes gods die) you stop the swelling in me, at least for a little while, but then my skin starts to shrink amidst our fleshfire. It's like i'm being born again, over and over. We were flirting with life, beneath our winter covers. Paranoia quietly rapes my mind, but the shape of your heart fits so nicely on mine. Candlelight, swallow me whole. We're gifted sleep for once, god bless. Crack-re-crack, our skin undone. I grow into you, roots hugging roots. I'm scared. Candlelight, swallow me whole. Please? Cut off all my winter weight. I want you to crush me from the inside out. I want you to scrape the fat from my teeth. I want you to paint me into the walls. I want you to want me to want you. I want you to cling to me, and suffer all my skin. I want you to taste yourself, and send your shivers down my spine. I would have wrote you a poem, if I weren't scared that you'd read it. I would have wrote you a love song, if I weren't scared that you'd hear it. As your flowers take root in my skin i can't see; If i'm feeding you, or if you're eating me.
