lyrics

I may have to borrow your tarot tomorrow,
Could you cut me the pack with a pocket knife?
And when you’re done with your bleeding, could you give me a reading?
I just pray they’ve got acid in the afterlife.

'Cos when it fell out the moon, that’s my eye.
(I’ll stab you in the third one)
I never held any sway with your second sight.
And if your zodiac’s telling you why
(I’ll stab you in the third one)
I don’t think you got your ouija board wired up right.
Alright.

Well, I’m in a relapse, everybody looks just like I did when I was sixteen, yeah?
'Cos I will ton down on you like a brick of stones, your broken bones,
I’ve seen the future and it’s a sham. I couldn’t give a damn.
You made a mistake, you made my bindi ache, enamoured me.

For two weeks every year,
I could make these demons disappear.

They got their arcane chronicles, po-faced with incantations and oscillations,
They got vibrations indoors.
Too far gone for me to ignore them.

But they got medicine, they got their healing, got their prophet,
Got their chosen one, their seventh son.
So why’d you have to steal my own life, close the gate,
Walk out on this.
Life’s a tricky jigsaw, God finds you naked,
Hides himself and lets you die, all alone.

When you gonna let it happen to you, dear?
Open up your third eye.
Cutting through the truth at speed that make us dizzy.

For two weeks in your heart,
I could stand the time that we’re apart.

I could grow with you.

I never felt like giving up before,
You wrecked my life, but you gave me more.

It’s tearing me apart.

For two weeks in your heart,
I could stand the time that we’re apart.

I could grow with you.

I never felt like giving up before,
You wrecked my life, but you gave me more.

For two weeks every year,
I could make these demons disappear.

But where do we go now?
In all my dreams I never felt alive,
I never felt that I could take it.
I dig your voodoo and I dig your vibe,
I really feel like we could make it.

“So take my hand and let’s get out of here”,
If only I could have been so upfront.
We’ll bury this thing for another year,
Until the devil comes to dig it up and bury us.
