There was a thump, then another
That came quicker than the others
And yet, try as I may,
They kept speeding up that way
I was the same two consonants
I just wanted u, all vowels
There was some twisting and some turning
Like Sam Cooke dancing on my bowels

What makes you hot like an oven
Sweat like a barrel
Of a shotgun pointed at you
Held by the devil

I wouldn't call it love
But my heart sure is pumping blood
It isn't pretty but it works
No it's not sharp but it still hurts
I wouldn't call it love
But my heart sure is pumping blood
It isn't pretty but it works
No it's not sharp but it still hurts

Sway to the right
Snake under charm, I couldn't fight
Without thought she took my hand
It seems she's already made plans
Now my feet keep shifting nervously
Stripping shine right off the floor
And my sweat glands keep shouting
We can't take it any more

What makes you hot like an oven
Sweat like a barrel
Of a shotgun pointed at you
Held by the devil

I wouldn't call it love
But my heart sure is pumping blood
It isn't pretty but it works
No it's not sharp but it still hurts
I wouldn't call it love
But my heart sure is pumping blood
It isn't pretty but it works
No it's not sharp but it still hurts

What makes you hot like an oven
Sweat like a barrel
Of a shotgun pointed at you
Held by the devil

I wouldn't call it love
But my heart sure is pumping blood
It isn't pretty but it works
No it's not sharp but it still hurts
I wouldn't call it love
But my heart sure is pumping blood
It isn't pretty but it works
No it's not sharp but it still hurts

I was the same two consonants

    General Commentwill this band ever stop being amazing? the WAHs kill me in the best way, oh my goodness.
    just never stop.
    i just love ben's voice and the way he can change the meaning of words just with the way he sings them. and how he completely destroys pronunciation sometimes but you still know what he's saying, and it's not annoying. it's just... ben.

    What does that line mean? Ben confused me with his answer on formspring. "its reference to two sounds, one of them is stuttering ckckck and the other, welll....use your imagination"

    General CommentI was the same two consonants = I was stuttering because I was nervous.

    I just wanted you, all vowels = I wanted to make you moan (oooh, or ahhh)
