  • Sit still in the cold of February
    Hold my hand in the cemetery and you'll be safe
    And I know that this is only temporary
    And I don't think that it's helping anything

    And it's all fun and games until someone gets fucked up
    This will end in tears I could never be enough for you
    Count my blessings on one hand and my curses on the other
    Let you slip between my fingers
    Hide away until the summer

    Kali Ma lean over me
    Rip your hand into my chest
    Pull out my beating heart for the world to see
    Then send me down to hell
    You ignore my pleas
    Indiana couldn't save me so I guess I'll save myself

    We hop from bench to bench in the middle of our town
    Where the street lights hit your eyes and then the tears came falling down
    The love that you confessed, the product of your loneliness
    I see right through you but what do I do?

    Of course I fall for it
    Just like I did when I was sixteen
    Such a fool for you
    Did you ever even miss me? (Doubt it)

    Kali Ma lean over me
    Rip your hand into my chest
    Pull out my beating heart for the world to see
    Then send me down to hell
    You ignore my pleas
    Indiana couldn't save me so I guess I'll save myself

    Kali Ma lean over me
    Rip your hand into my chest
    Pull out my beating heart for the world to see
    Oh, won't you go to hell? (Go to hell)

    (You're gonna get killed chasing after your damn fortune and glory)
    Maybe I, maybe I will (but not today) Writer/s: Andrew Robert Wade, Benedict Kieran James Barlow, Daniel Washington, Jeremy Wade Mckinnon, Lloyd Anthony Roberts, Philip Michael Thorpe-Evans, Sebastian Matthew James Barlow
