"Poppies" as written by and Babatunde O Adebimpe David Sitek....
I showed up too drunk,
And stuck my head in the sink,
I only wanted to talk,
You only wanted to think.
You brought up his name
And I lost control
I put your face through a mirror (?)
Turned around and go (?)

So if you wear your flower
And I'll wear my smile
And just tell your mother
That you ain't seen me in a while.
And sake me for once more
to end my denial
Poppies will put them to sleep
Poppies will put them to...
Poppies will put them to sleep.

You fell asleep quick
And I hold my head
You know I almost got sick
Just being back in your bed.
Then I...I heard him pull up
so I jumped to my feet
I've waited so long to make this moment so sweet.

And I watched as he called you
And knocked on your window
I froze in the moment and
just watched his shadow.
While tears of endearment
were stripped from my anxious mind

Poppies will put them to sleep.
Poppies will put them to...
Poppies will put them to sleep.

So you wear your flower,
And I'll wear my smile
And just tell your mother
that you ain't seen me in a while
And sake me for once more
to end my denial.
Poppies will put them to sleep
Poppies will put them to...
Poppies will put them to sleep.
