Snow Water

from by the dreaded diamond

lyrics

Wash my hands with snow water
Bathe my organs in an antiseptic river
Keep them sterile
And scalpel, please
I’ll sign any release to remove all black widow tendencies
Waiting for the feed
Waiting for the feed

I’ll make you honest if you promise to ignore me
I’ll shut my eyes, ‘cause I’m more stable when I’m lonely
But you’re so lovely
Listen close, deceitful heart
Stand up straight and mind your tongue
Don’t you embarrass me
Just do your job quietly

Let the light burn up the darker
Side of me and wind around my crooked soul like ivy
But it’s not so easy
There’s an entire cast and crew pulling my strings
And not all of them are sweet

I’ll make you honest if you promise to ignore me
Shut your eyes and don’t mind me, I just get lonely
Around someone so lovely
Listen close, deceitful heart
Stand up straight and mind your tongue
Don’t you embarrass me
Don’t you embarrass me
Just sing yourself back to sleep

Hope springs eternal like the fount I thought I had figured out
I must be good for something besides burning bridges I built myself
What’s the word for the gift of touching gold and turning it to ashes
If you know, write it down
‘Cause I am pretty sure I have it
