Lion's Share

  • I find you hid in mirrorville
    Creature of the deep
    Waifish as a widow
    And without sufficient sleep
    Oh what am I supposed to think
    Do I pull you out
    Or do I let you sink

    I wait until you're woozy
    I won't know until your limp
    I take you in the mouth
    Like a lion takes his game
    I love you all the more
    Forever we thought
    But how it got within me
    How I cracked the vault

    'cause it's a terrible scare
    But that's why the dark is there
    See you don't have to see what you can't bear
    The lion's share

    Lion's share
    I took the lion's share
    Not 'cause I didn't care
    Just 'cause I knew it was there

    Oh oh oh oh
    Lion's share
    I took the lion's share
    Not 'cause I didn't care
    Just 'cause I knew it was there

    Boy-oy-oy-oy whatcha running from
    Boy-oy-oy-oy
    Boy-oy-oy-oy whatcha running from
    Boy-oy-oy-oy
    'cause it's a terrible scare
    But that's why the dark is there
    See you don't have to see what you can't bear
    The lion's share

    Boy-oy-oy-oy whatcha running from
    Boy-oy-oy-oy
    Boy-oy-oy-oy whatcha running from
    Boy-oy-oy-oy
    'cause it's a terrible scare
    But that's why the dark is there
    See you don't have to see what you can't bear
