It was cold outside
Had to make up my mind
Everything was broken and twisted outside
Seventeen
If you know what I mean
Everythign was broken
Close your eyes
And shut 'em up tight
You don't wanna see what I have to hide
Keep them closed
And take of your clothes
I guess you think it would hurt me if I did not know
Open wide
I'm going inside
Everything was broken and twisted outside
Phoenix down
There's no one around
I'm ready to be broken
Everything

I want more
And this fire burns from your pores
And I want your body
You walk away

It's warm inside
So send an invite
You don't know what it feels like to be outside
You seem so closed
Of what I don't know
But I am always open
Six fourteen
It's not what it seems
I ask but you won't tell me so what does that mean
My heart implant
It makes me incant
Just how much I want but I feel I can't
Open wide
I'm going inside
I don't wanna force you but I just might try
Phoenix down
There's no one around
I'm ready to be broken

I want more
And this fire burns from your pores
I want your body
You walk away

You and I, we seem to disagree
Just close your eyes and pleasure me
You and I, we seem to disagree
It's just how I feel

I want more
This fire burns from your pores
And I want your body
You walk away

Open wide
I'm going inside
Everything was broken and twisted outside

    General CommentI asked Drew what this song was about probaby 3 months after this band was started. Without hesitation he told me "ROUGH SEX." AHAHA. What's funnier is that he isn't lying. I'll let someone else fill in the details about what the lyrics seem to be about, tho.

    General CommentOyy, I can understand this song more than anyone ever should.

    Not just rough sex, but a rough relationship. Like, physically rough. He's afraid that her eyes will open and she'll see that he's abusing her, so he controls her and manipulates her until she doesn't know what the hell she's thinking yet can't blame him.

    Amazing, amazing song.

    General CommentI thought it was about rape... well I guess in a sense it is. But black winged angel got it perfect if you ask me.

    General CommentWell, I asked Drew a couple years ago and he said it was about a friend of theirs who moved to Alaska. He might have been fucking with me though.
