Blood Like Cream

Album: Whales and Leeches (2013)
  • I refuse to sleep
    I will not eat
    I'm drowning in my bed
    Bind her hands to mine
    And make her blind
    She's lost the rest of time
    Babe frothing at the teeth
    Carry him to me
    His blood like cream
    Stars that fade away
    The light will dissipate
    And carve another name

    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Just before I take you
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Just before I take you

    Paint your lips with blood
    And clean your eyes
    You've stripped away the skin
    Babe frothing at the teeth
    Carry him to me, his blood like cream

    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Just before I take you
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Just before I take you

    Cancer of thinking
    Think you've been left behind?
    All that your wasting
    Wasting away

    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Just before I take you
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Just before I take you Writer/s: AARON G. BEAM, DAVID WILLIAM SULLIVAN, JOHN SHERMAN, MAURICE BRYAN GILES
