Talk about your peace of mind.
The one I found so hard to find.
Mosquito stuck in amber mine.
Don't want my body trapped in time.

As I wait for skies to clear,
Don't seem to mind if I shed a tear.
From time to time, I'm swallowed whole,
And in a wink spat on the floor.

Will I follow you home again.

How's it feel to disappear.
Like seriously, just disappear.
And take a stab from papa's spear.
Getting drunk on rotten air.

Bite my tongue, I taste your blood.
Never thought that I could bite hard enough.
Eyes of fire in your skull.
You've got the kind of eyes that burns goose flesh off.

Oh your charm is getting cold.
This kind of love ain't bought or sold.
I know you tried if truth be told,
But I still cast you to a bed of coal.

Will I follow you home again.
Bite my tongue, I taste your blood.
Never thought that I could bite hard enough.

    My Interpretationthought i'd comment since i looked for a song meaning for this n there wasnt one,

    Talk about your peace of mind.
    The one I found so hard to find.
    Mosquito stuck in amber mine.
    Don't want my body trapped in time.

    my interpretation is this song is made after he has broken up with a partner, he doesnt want to have feelings and hurt all over his mind and doesnt want to be trapped feeling sad
    he's "waiting for skies to clear" but not doing anything about it just being sad

    How's it feel to disappear.
    Like seriously, just disappear.
    And take a stab from papa's spear.
    Getting drunk on rotten air.

    this bits a bit trickier to interpret, maybe he was the one who deleted his partner from his life, making her "disappear"

    "taking a stab from papa's spear" could be him getting his revenge on her by refusing contact.

    Bite my tongue, I taste your blood.
    Never thought that I could bite hard enough.
    Eyes of fire in your skull.
    You've got the kind of eyes that burns goose flesh off.

    He thinks about her so much that he describes it as physical "biting his tongue and tasting your blood"
    the eyes of fire part could be a metaphor for how he feels when he looks at her, maybe she betrayed him or he betrayed her

    Oh your charm is getting cold.
    This kind of love ain't bought or sold.
    I know you tried if truth be told,
    But I still cast you to a bed of coal.

    he is sticking to his principles and not being "bought or sold" but beginning to forgive her "i know you tried if truth be told"
    casting her to coal implies that she was the one who betrayed him

    all in all i feel this song is a man waiting for his love for someone to die after he has severed all ties with them, despite not wanting them back he cant stop feeling the pain of their loss
