lyrics

One told me only use filtered water
and I told him to go straight to hell
One asked me if I was my father’s daughter
Said i was raised by a wishing well

As your thieving fingers broke the surface
I should’ve just pulled you in
'stead in the city by street lamp search for your warmth
wrapped in a disguise of a human skin

And I awake so hungry
I awake so hungry
I awake famished with your scent under my fingernails

As you sleep your blood pumps so hard your body moves
And I've never seen such a thing
After two years the holes in my brain might start to heal
And its like I was never missing anything.
Never might turn to next month
Faster than a trap if I wanted to set one
And I start my games all playing from the end
I want to warn you as you dream
My hollow human hinges on nothing
But I keep a quarter of yours in a pillow under my bed

And I’ll
Devour you

One showed clear interest in my insides
Yet his insides weren’t interesting
Sweet thing, its your touch that I desire
Every other one’s a tragedy

You’re breathing un-rythmically
And a blue bird breaks her neck
Flying to her lover her reflection
In your eyelids as you slept

And I awake so hungry
I awake so hungry
I awake famished with your scent under my fingernails

As you sleep your blood pumps so hard your body moves
And I've never seen such a thing
After two years the holes in my brain might start to heal
And its like I was never missing anything.
Never might turn to next month
Faster than a trap if I wanted to set one
And I start my games all playing from the end
I want to warn you as you dream
My hollow human hinges on nothing
But I keep a quarter of yours in a pillow under my bed

And I’ll
Devour you

Three-eighty-five my love
Encase me in amber - I’m still trying

And were he still alive I’m sure he’d say
Plenty of other things worth dying

Maybe we won’t be as happy as happy as happy was
As happy was before

But I loved him straight to his guts to his gore
Yeah, I loved him much for that blood oath he swore
Yeah, I loved him for his stories
Will he love me for the story?

And I awake so hungry
I awake so hungry
I awake famished with your scent under my fingernails

As you sleep your blood pumps so hard your body moves
And I've never seen such a thing
After two years the holes in my brain might start to heal
And its like I was never missing anything.
Never might turn to next month
Faster than a trap if I wanted to set one
And I start my games all playing from the end
I want to warn you as you dream
My hollow human hinges on nothing
But I keep a quarter of yours in a pillow under my bed

And I’lll
Devour you
