You'll never catch me
My belly is red, black and red
Black and red
Black and red
Black and red

You complete me.

Fucking say it
Fucking say it
Fucking say it
It's like you're meant to be a hostage
Another hostage will eat you alive

Fucking say it
Fucking say it
Fucking say it
I take it for granted
That you'll feel at home

You complete me.

When you flirt it makes me nauseous
I'm fucking nauseous
And I'll eat you alive
(background: you complete me, you complete me, you complete me, you complete me, you complete me.)

I take it for granted
That you'll feel at home

Emotions never change
Only towards you
Look down, I'm strung to your ribcage
Look down, I'm strung to your ribcage
Inflamed in every other way,
In every other way
Look down, I'm strung to your ribcage
Look down, I'm strung to your ribcage
Inhale the splinters and the rain
The splinters and the rain
Look down, I'm strung to your ribcage
Look down, I'm strung to your ribs.

    General CommentThis is such a good song! I'm not sure what it means though in English we were doing Macbeth and it was described as "a study in black and red", signifying the evil and blood in the book. So maybe the black and red at the start's kinda like that?
    I think they love them in a twisted fashion.

    General Comment"You complete me.

    jealousy in a relationship, everyone must have felt at some point

    also i love the guitar break between these two lines, its like its the feelings buildin up inside after the first line until he snaps and the flow out into the second
