speak softly my sweet
tell me what you're thinkin'
let the words fall free
indifferent to their meaning or consequence

'cause tonight i'm a priest
shrouded in your quilt
and you shall see truth in me
so fucking say somethin'

or we could just lie here
like two corpses side-by-side
buried in this bed
it's just the sounds of our rotting bodies
and the kids in the street cursing 'till their tongues bleed

are you tired?
'cause i'm wide awake (x2)

(so fucking say somethin')

are you tired?
'cause i'm wide awake (x4)

are you tired?
