lyrics

THE MATTRESS FIRE (demo)
-
-
-
I would run through burning houses.
Disassemble faulty outlets,
Spitting devils from their mouths that-
-
Match the heat of my devotion.
Match the deepest, darkest ocean.
-
Unwrap the sheets around your torso.
Lift you up onto my shoulder.
Kick the bedroom door until it-
-
Breaks the plywood reinforcements.
Rips a hole along the ceiling.
-
-
Lay your body down in darkness.
Feel the cold air swarm around us.
Warm blood running down my hands that-
-
Match the heat of my aggression.
While I watch what shouldn't happen.
-
Your movements drip of expiration.
If I could, I'd be the one, and
I'd take your place, take every last breath.
-
Why can't I be the one that's leaving?
Why can't you stay the one that's living?
-
-
I would run through burning houses.
Disassemble faulty outlets,
Spitting devils from their mouths that-
-
Match the heat of my devotion.
Match the deepest, darkest ocean.
