• Don't you cherish me to sleep
    Never keep your eyelids clipped
    Hold me for the pops and clicks
    I was only for the father's crib

    Hair, old, long along
    Your neck onto your shoulder blades
    Always keep that message taped
    Cross your breasts you won't erase
    I was only for your very space

    Hip, under nothing
    Propped up by your other one
    Face 'way from the sun
    Just have to keep a dialogue
    Teach our bodies, haunt the cause
    I was only trying to spell a loss

    Joy, it's all founded
    Pincher with the skin inside
    You pinned me with your black sphere eyes
    You know that all the rope's untied
    I was only for to die beside

    So it's storming on the lake
    Little waves our bodies break
    There's a fire going out
    But there's really nothing to the south
    Swollen orange and light let through
    Your one-piece swimmer stuck to you

    Sold, I'm ever
    Open ears and open eyes
    Wake up to your starboard bride
    Who goes in and then stays inside
    Oh, the demons come, they can subside Writer/s: Justin Deyarmond Edison Vernon, Matthew Boutwell McCaughan
