Unconditional Love

Album: Transgender Dysphoria Blues (2014)
  • Unraveling, unrolled, a siren in the night
    I love the jaundice of your skin
    Its perverse plasticity
    You make me want to smoke cigarettes
    You make me want to drink whiskey

    But even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me

    My sycophant love song, my authentic desperation
    I'm addicted to the feeling, the only kind of steady I believe in
    Prison cell exercises, solitary sport entertainment
    What makes you think you're gonna die any different?

    Even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me

    Even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    It still wouldn't save me
    It still wouldn't save me

    Don't worry, young suicides, the vultures will pick your bones dry
    Half digested and eternal, somewhere lost in the ephemeral
    Welcome to the future, an always ice-cold nightmare
    Burnt coffee and Percocets, yeah, this night, too, will end

    Even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me

    Even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me
    Even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    Even if your love was unconditional
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me
    It still wouldn't be enough to save me Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
