lyrics

Here we go again
no plots or wishing can stop it now
that ragged march
This spurious sin

You smile the light of me, ply the fight in me
we fly at the sun, ghosts at our back

What we call upon is wicked
a carryover from some time long gone
Every time we almost rated
you bit the hand and it bit you back
you bit the hand and it bit you back

What you want I got
I pour it out till you drown
For you I’m ground
and like an anchor you drag me around

And what’s it gotten us –
a draw at naughts and crosses and bloody fingers
For all I could have, it wounds more to doubt

What we call it now is wicked
just fence to mend and cross to bear
To bury us in want is wicked
you bit the hand and it bit you back
you bit the hand and it bit you back

over and over
bowling me over
sleeping alone

I shouldn’t want you but damn my eyes I do
