  • Poke at my iris
    Why can't I cry about this?
    Maybe there is something that you know that I don't
    We adopt brand new language
    Communicate through pursed lips
    And you try not to put on any sexy clothes or graces
    I might never catch a mouse
    And present it in my mouth
    To make you feel you're with someone who deserves to be with you
    But there's one thing we've got going
    And it's the only thing worth knowing
    It's got lots to do with magnets and the pull of the moon
    Why won't our love keel over as it chokes on a bone?
    And we can mourn its passing
    And then bury it in snow
    Or should we kick its cunt in
    And watch as it dies from bleeding?
    If you don't want to be with me just say and I will go

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    Well we can change our partners
    This is a progressive dance but
    Remember it was me who dragged you up to the sweaty floor
    Well this has been a reel
    I've got shin-splints and a stitch from wee
    But like a drunken night it's the best bits that are colored in
    You should look through some old photos
    I adored you in every one of those
    If someone took a picture of us now they'd need to be told
    That we had ever clung and tied
    A navy knot with arms at night
    I'd say she was his sister but she doesn't have his nose
    And now we're unrelated and rid of all the shit we hated
    But I hate when I feel like this
    And I never hated you

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh Writer/s: Grant David Hutchison, Scott John Hutchison, David Kennedy
