My inner demons compel me to be here
Your cheeks are flush, like rose petals
You're consumed with rage
But I'm consumed with you

Our eyes intertwine through the haze
Intoxicated by your bloodshot stare
In all of my dreams I never thought I'd see
A face that could launch a thousand ships

And the music was like wind in your hair
The moonlight caressed your silhouette
Kiss of ocean mist is in the air
Why must God punish me this way?

Lay down my hand, the next move is yours
As you undress me with your frozen eyes
In all of my dreams I never thought I'd see
An endless love to share my blue lagoon

And the music was like wind in your hair
The moonlight caressed your silhouette
Kiss of ocean mist is in the air
Why must God punish me this way

Happiness is hard to come by
But I've had my fair share
The satin sheets, the lemon peels
The minor keys, the major pills
We've climbed the mountain, saw the top
And planted the apple seed
And can't you see we could've had it all?

And the music was like wind in your hair
The moonlight caressed your silhouette
Kiss of ocean mist is in the air
Why must God punish me this way?

And the music was like wind in your hair
The moonlight caressed your silhouette
Kiss of ocean mist is in the air
Why must God punish me this way?

Why must God punish me this way?
This way, this way, this way...

    General Commentthis song is awesome. Mike patton has a great voice and the music is great too. The live Lovage cover of "I'm Real" is very well done

    My InterpretationI have two theories:
    Either it is a retrospective vision on a failed but sexually charged relationship (the guy goes through old memories of lust and an abrupt ending to it all)
    or it's about cheating.
