Midnight rolls around and finds me awake,
Still in disbelief of how I escaped
Tied to a chair with a wire run clean cross my chest

Pebbles, outsize her narrow pupils
Concession, I ain’t sold on love without her
Obsession, she’s my baby

Instead She Let Me Go

I dodged death from one great vagrant of god
Our eyes met and that’s when we became love,
Raising the knife she could not deny appetite,
We were meant to spend eternity side by side.
