"Blackwater Child" as written by and Fionn Regan....
Down here underneath the microscope,
it's hard to cope.
don't hide your face in your hands,
'cause if your eyes play tricks,
it's outta my control.
it's gonna be a long cold winter.
the skeletons of trees, my blackwater child
if you don't love me, well, don't shove me
out into the dark
without a flashlight or a spark.
any stitches cling like bitches to my arms
for all my charms.
it's gonna be a crooked little winter
the skeletons of trees, my blackwater child
she's walking home
to the devil's flowers.
the broken bones
of heavy hours.
we stayed out late,
it's a lighthouse trait.
and we'll take our time

    Song MeaningThis song is about a break up and the narrator wanting to be let down easily.
    "if you don't love me, well, don't shove me
    out into the dark without a flashlight or a spark"

    He knows it's going to be a sad winter without her.

    "any stitches cling like bitches to my arms
    for all my charms.
    it's gonna be a crooked little winter"

    And they're taking their time ending the relationship.
    hence the "We'll take our time"
