lyrics

I'm tender under
When do you think we'll get there?
Oh help me, help me
Back to somewhere easy
Born from seed, born from blood
Born from a sad kind of look-away love
Look, these flowers all lined up
Don't you want this, what I got?
I was formed into a fist
I was ready for the blow
You said, "How do you beg
For mercy or for more?"
How do you beg?
For mercy or for more?
Who is it? Who is it?
What's with it? What's with it?
I see now why your god, he trembles
The weather all up to him
Brim full of little girl's secrets
He promised not to tell
What color is your madness? A purple majesty?
A red alert? A yellow hurt? Or a jaded jealousy?
Who is it? Who is it?
What's with it? What's with it?
What color is your blue? A desperate dark night?
Or a blue on which to watch your rocket take flight?
Oh let them knock, it's not for nothing
Oh let them, let them, let them in…
Who is it? Who is it?
I am a morsel
Fallen to the ground
Small and delicious
And somehow wasted.
