lyrics

You came and washed the night away
I haven’t felt this way in ages
Are you haunting me?
Or have I finally gone to sleep?

I course electric through these veins
Whose evil plan has made you smell like poison ivy?
How I like the taste of ivy

I can’t explain myself today
I’ll have to scare you into hating me with every breath
And wishing me an early death

You flood this empty heart of mine
I haven’t felt this way in ages
I’ll be surely sick if push to shove comes clearly to this

I’m married to the dark
All echoes of an ancient heart
I am daggers and knives
And when the seasons change
I creep back to my crooked ways
Run if you think you can

I fear the worst is yet to come
I’ll suffocate these pangs of hunger for your pretty head
And blanket red of pure regret

You plead to learn the awful truth
I wouldn’t wish this waking life upon my enemies
All thoughts are black
And actions blacker

I’m married to the dark
All echoes of an ancient heart
I am daggers and knives
And when the seasons change
I creep back to my crooked ways
Run if you think you can

I believe we can both get what we need
And if they’re not with us
They’re against us

You came and washed the night away
I haven’t felt this way in ages
Are you haunting me?
Or have I finally gone to sleep?

I course electric through these veins
Whose evil plan has made you smell like poison ivy?
How I like the taste of ivy

We’re married to the dark
All echoes are these ancient hearts
We are daggers and knives
And when the seasons change
We creep back to our crooked ways
Run if you think you can

I believe we can both get what we need
If they decide we are darkness worse than evil
Then they’re not with us
They’re against us
