Lyrics

Dust 

With spit on the knife
and dust on your teeth
the warm shadow of the night
slips in underneath
a secret appointment in an apartment you hid somewhere

She opens her mouth
turns off the TV
lets in the boys
who sing of belief
a hand on my shoulder oh god it made me crawl

A shape in the wall
plays Head on the Door
plays Wicked World
I left unsure
of The Future I listened to the prophet till he said he was dead
and then I wondered about what else he would have said

Come out, come out, come out

A trick on the eye
where the simplest signs
are hidden spells
I fell unwell
the timidest mouse gets crushed underneath their feet

Tell me a lie
to me it’s alright
to be lost underneath
the oceans and seas
this currency pays only for what you don’t need

Come out, come out, come out

 

Tom

Tom
We never liked anyone
Tom
We certainly had some fun
Tom
Can we turn the hurt to song?
Tom
We did it all and for no one
But Tom
I left to fight my own
And Tom
You certainly were at odds
With what you had become
Oh Tom
Did you forget how to run?

But a well lit lamp should never burn so bright
Should have been with you on that fucked up night

But I’m sinking too
I’m sinking too

Just slower than you
Just slower than you
Just slower than you
Just slower than you

 

DOLORES CHRIST

IM GONNA LIVE FOREVER ON TOP OF YOU
THIS MANS A MOUNTAIN WITH VALLEYED SHOES
MY HUNGERS PRETENDING , IM ALREADY FULL
BUT IM GONNA CHEW THE SIDES OFF OF YOU

DEATH NEEDS AN ANSWER FOR ALL YOU DO
ARE WE JUST FLIRTING HONEY OR SHOULD WE SCREW
I GIVE A DRY NOD TO THE DROWNING FEW
DOLORES CHRIST , NOW THATS A NAME

IM GONNA LIVE FOREVER THATS JUST WHAT I DO
A FULL VALUE VAMPIRE , WITH VEGAN VIEWS
I MISS MY MUMMY , AND WOLF DADDY TOO
A MONSTER FAMILY , FOR DOLORES CHRIST

 

Fur

$20 says she lies like a jackal
$80 says he wants an affair
I been tracing ground for the spirit they left around
I been left alone with a jackal

Warm sun on the small of my back and my hands in my head
Won’t tell you no if you make a new promise, and it’s kept
and the lock clicks

Liar! Liar! Liar! I was there! I was there!

I spat into the ocean and the ocean swallowed it
I swam around in circles like a dog, you know, dumb
and then I came to you, cause you wanted me to cum
and the madness of the air cut silent by a wing
I give you half the world, I’ll give you everything

Wolf stands at a kill

I let it pass here I know it won’t last in a cage
I stand in the future I don’t really stand on a stage
and the chimes play
