  • One hundred and fifteen
    You are seventeen
    Itchy trigger
    Venomous
    You growing longer
    You growing stronger
    So she'd your skin, baby
    Now she'd this

    Come on over now
    Come on over baby
    You tell me it's holy holy
    I don't know what that is, come on over now
    Let's call it the fullness of time
    I don't know what that is, come on over now

    Hey holy, console me
    Some power, controls me
    Remorse it, I force
    It can't free it, so be it

    I'm speaking in tongues
    Handling you
    I got religion now look at it
    The days grow longer
    As we grow stronger
    So she'd your skin baby let it rip

    Come on over now
    Come on over baby
    You tell me it's holy holy
    I don't know what that is, come on over now
    Let's call it the fullness of time
    I don't know what that is, come on over now

    Hey holy, console me
    Some power, controls me
    Remorse it, I force
    Don't free it, just be it
    Just be it, just be it

    I've been lookin' to find you
    But it's a little too late too soon
    And I looking out and far
    Spirits are your doom
    In you
    In you

    I got the hangman
    I got Milagro
    I got the celebration too
    The flesh is strong
    My spirit's stronger
    So shed your skin
    Baby let it through

    Come on over now
    Come on over baby
    You tell me it's holy holy
    I don't know what that is, come on over now
    You wanna call it the fullness of time
    I don't know what that is, come on over now

    Hey holy, console me
    Some power, controls me
    Remorse it, I force
    It can't free it, so be it

    Hey holy, console me
    Some power, controls me
    Come on over baby Writer/s: AMY ELIZABETH RAY, EMILY ANN SALIERS
