  • I see you harvesting
    I see you wrapped in my way
    But you won't get away with it honey
    No, you'll never come close to me

    You will forgive me if I'm lean
    Or comatose on codeine
    We were baptized, grey stones and azure river
    To wake me from this twilight sleep

    As we draw near the waiting room
    With the nod of two white owls
    One to sedate her, one shot to stop her heart
    Dear Ethel, all the lights in the city went out

    Birth of violence
    Sister of the road
    I see your defenses
    I take ten paces

    I've come to know what I need
    I visualize while I bleed
    Towns in a mudslide
    An early morning shiver
    Won't let them take you from me

    Birth of violence
    Sister of the road
    I see your defenses
    I take ten paces

    Baby you are
    Baby you are
    Baby you are
    Baby you are
    Baby you are
    Baby you are
    The only one
    The only one
    The only one
    The only one Writer/s: Chelsea Joy Wolfe
