my hand brushes against the lock of hair that hangs down past your ear to your jaw (2x)
it's real neat, the moment's sweet but it's all wrong

and we're pictures of decency when we wave goodbye outside
we're pictures of decency when we wave goodbye outside
yeah, i'm the model of composure out there
but you oughta see me shaking later on

my brain gets flooded six hours later
my brain gets flooded over six hours later
rivers run with pictures of you as i stare up at the blood red moon
lying out front on the lawn, hey

    General CommentI definitely relate. It's the feeling when you are at the point in a relationship and it's not really going anywhere and everything reminds you that you want more.

    General CommentIt's a song about the Alpha Couple, again. This time, they actually try and separate themselves from one another and their goodbyes appear to be the healthiest part of their relationship. However, when he's left alone and without her, despite the emotional sado-masochism that is their relationship, he realizes that he needs her. In short, he'd rather be in hell with his wife than left in peace without her because, in spite of everything that they put one another through, they're in love. A twisted and warped kind of love.
