Compulse 03:15
You can’t convince me I am wrong when I already know it. You can’t expect to hold me back when I’m about to blow it. I thought of every meaning you could hide inside an eyebrow. I considered every reason that your sour stare would allow. Can’t stop Can’t stop Can’t let it go Stale/turn pale In every look you send a hundred hopes in new directions. In every hook I write another failure to detect them. Can’t stop Can’t stop Can’t let it go Stale/turn pale It’s a habit now, you’ve got to have it now.

You’ve got such a pretty mane. It feels so good when you’re next to me. Would you bear your teeth again? One more time, I am in awe. Are you strong? Are you proud? Are you king? Are you…? You’ve got your paws digging into me. We’re wrapped so tight it’s hard to see. If that’s your heart beating so big, why do your jaws sink in so deep? Are you strong? Are you proud? Are you king? Are you…? I thought you were a lion, but you were a bear.

An orchid blooms, Buds can’t contain their fragrance— It’s spilling out. The warmest breeze, Soft fruit it ripens: The nectar flows. Your locusts come and all is lost. Your locusts come and all that’s left are empty boughs. Your locusts come and all that’s left are empty mouths. Your locusts come and who will feed my family now. You’re a lightning bolt And I’ll be the pole that sends you to the ground. You’re an evergreen And I’ll be the cigarette that burns you down. The roots dig deep. They feed upon the dark soil That I lay down. The brightest light Shows the trees which way to grow— They’re reaching up. Your locusts come and all is lost. Your locusts come and who will feed my family now. Your locusts come and all that’s left are empty mouths. Your locusts come and who will feed my family now. You’re a lightning bolt And I’ll be the cigarette that burns you down. You’re an evergreen And I’ll be the pole that sends you to the ground.
