Bitter Fruit

Album: Ash & Ice (2016)
  • Cut your branches at the root
    That long have grown that bitter fruit
    Cut your branches at the root
    That only gave me bitter fruit

    I was conceived in a red cage, from a wild love
    I am the seed of a dead age, gone viral
    Those feelings I've tried to shake, all my life long
    But the demons I'm keeping are hard to face
    When you hide them, so long

    I gotta cut you at the root
    I gotta save my soul from the bad in you
    I gotta cut you through and through
    You only ever gave me bitter fruit

    Oh and it grew like a shockwave
    And I was blindsided, oh oh
    The fruit that your love gave
    Poisoned my mind up, oh oh

    I cut your branches at the root
    I gotta save my soul from the things you do
    I cut your branches through and through
    But still I only taste that bitter fruit

    Down to the bone
    All my love was cut in a single blow
    Gone, and I know
    All my love was cut in the seed I sowed

    I could pray, but can't you see
    The kind of things I pray for are cursing me
    I could pray, but can't you see
    The kind of things I pray for
    The kind of things I need

    I cut your branches at the root
    That only ever gave me bitter fruit
    I cut your branches through and through
    But still I only taste that bitter fruit

    I could pray, but can't you see
    The kind of things I pray for are cursing me
    I could pray, but can't you see
    The kind of things I pray for
    The kind of things I need

    Cut your branches at the root
    That long have grown that bitter fruit
    Cut your branches at the root
    That only gave me bitter fruit

    Cut your branches at the root
    That long have grown that bitter fruit
    Cut your branches at the root
    That only gave me bitter fruit Writer/s: ALISON MOSSHART, JAMIE HINCE
