    These Claws What I Got



house Wife

mouse, Fight!


take Knife

make Strife


Take the knife

Cut out your heart

Drink of the blood

There’s iron to be found

Warm strength flowing

Down down down


Let the blood speak

Cover your eyes

Block out the noise

Let your voice bleed

Marriage going

Down down down


Hide yourself well

Laugh without fear

Cut your heart free

Drop it to the ground

Walk on

Down down down
