I was coming up for air
I was sick she was despair
my mind was thrilling
her body was willing
now I weep to sleep
I count the cost
I can't believe all that I have lost

do you hear me? or feel me? believe me?
when I tell you could I bleed less than is needless
could you be shamed damned and blamed
like I shame you?

I was gonna get my share
I was drunk on the fetid air she was breathing
I was seething
she was blotched, beautiful, bloody and bored
I was coming and coming and coming
it was running on her open sores

do you hear me? or feel me? believe me?
when I tell you could I bleed less than is needless
could you be shamed damned and blamed
like I shame you?

I've got a legacy of hot night and bloody heights
I was brief baby
She was my, my relief
now I hide in the light and in the love
and in this fear of a switchblade

do you hear me? or feel me? believe me?
when I tell you could I bleed
less than is needless, could you be
shamed damned and blamed
like I shame you?
like I shame you and you and you?
like I shame you?
like I shame you and you and you?
like I shame you?
