  • Bite chunks out of me
    You're a shark and I'm swimming
    My heart still thumps as I bleed
    And all your friends come sniffing.

    Triangles are my favorite shape
    Three points where two lines meet.
    Toe to toe, back to back, let's go
    My love it's very late.
    'Til morning comes, let's tessellate.

    Go alone my flower
    And keep my whole lovely you.
    Wild green stones alone my lover
    And keep us on my heart.

    Three guns and one goes off, one's empty, one's not quick enough
    One burn, one red, one grin
    Search the graves while the camera spins.
    Chunks of you will sink down to seals
    Blubber rich in mourning.
    They'll nosh you up, yes they'll nosh the love away, but it's fair to say
    You will still haunt me.

    Triangles are my favorite shape
    Three points where two lines meet.
    Toe to toe, back to back, let's go
    My love it's very late.
    'Til morning comes, let's tessellate. Writer/s: Augustus Figaro Niso Unger-Hamilton, Charlie Andrew, Gwilym David Dylan Sainsbury, Joe Jerome Newman, Thomas Stuart Green
