Call my name in the bathroom mirror
when your wine-soaked hands are struggling with the scissors
Call my name to keep your limbs in check
when your last cigarette's been flicked from the deck

Call my name when your lips blur red
Shaking and stuttering and trembling, trembling

Call my name when the ark starts to tip
and all the lesser animals flee from the ship
Call my name when your body's a hearse
and you're folding your hands to create the church

And hold it
And hold it

Call my name and make a wish
and take a rest 'cause it's the best thing
to leave your lips

Is that your best? I'm not impressed
Soured at your small attempt
to coalesce

When the ark started to tip
You contracted cholera
and everyone jumped ship

Is this the end? Well let's pretend
to grope my neck and cut your wrists
we'll start it all again

Call my name and make a wish
and take a rest 'cause it's the best thing
to leave your lips

Is that your best? I'm not impressed
Soured at your small attempt
to coalesce

When the ark (when the ark) started to tip (aw shit)
You contracted cholera
and everyone jumped ship

Is this the end? (it's the end) Well let's pretend (let's pretend)
to grope my neck and cut your wrists
we'll start it all again

Call my name (call my name) and make a wish (make a wish)
and take a rest 'cause it's the best thing
to leave your lips

Is that your best? (that your best) I'm not impressed (not impressed)
Soured at your small attempt
to coalesce

When the ark (when the ark) started to tip (aw shit)
You contracted cholera
and everyone jumped ship

Is this the end? (it's the end) Well let's pretend (let's pretend)
to grope my neck and cut your wrists
we'll start it all again
