Album: My Dinosaur Life (2010)
  • To the deep end, to the heart line
    Hold it straight together, man
    Hold it straight together, if you can
    Little fevers wrapped in medication
    All strung out on novelty
    Collapse yourself and try to comprehend
    An angry island, a bitter bee sting
    Severing and shattering
    Free the self and fix the in between
    It's isolation, mark the earth around you
    Guess who's on the waiting list
    I'll let you in on something secret

    I can disappear
    Anytime I want to, time I feel you
    Shuffle through my skin
    I am with you til the end

    First you breathe out
    Then you have to breathe in
    Lash yourself repeatedly
    Until it sticks, until it sticks
    Under the eyelids, carry on cadaver
    Festering interiors
    All hollow breach and vapor silhouette
    Need medication, more medication
    Coursing through your interstates
    All mad and great, confused and counterfeit
    Kamikaze, sear the blood inside me
    Guess who's got it figured out
    I'll let you in on something secret

    I can disappear
    Anytime I want to, time I feel you
    Shuffle through my skin
    I am with you til the end

    And I can decompose
    When it suits me I accelerate it
    Wicked on all fours,
    I surrender to the storm

    You'll never know how it feels
    You'll never know how it feels
    Can you feel it?
    Can you feel it?

    I can disappear
    Anytime I want to, time I feel you
    Shuffle through my skin
    I am with you til the end

    I can decompose
    When it suits me, I accelerate it
    Wicked on all fours,
    I surrender to the storm

    And I can disappear
    Anytime I want to, time I feel you
    Shuffle through my skin
    I am with you til the end
    I'm with you til the end Writer/s: DAVID GAMSON, JOLEEN BELLE, ROBYN MICHELLE JOHNSON
