Lyrics

Who could tell?
You can’t smell poison in a perfumed well
So I fell
Into a softly padded empty shell
Forged in hell
Bought by you to sell

I was high
But I remember when you treated me fine
So unkind
You broke my cellar and you drank my wine
Now same in kind
The curse once yours is mine

Oh baby
Can’t you see what you’ve done to me?
Have mercy on me

I’ve clung to the glove
That your hand slipped out of
Empty as the love
I mistook for a gift from above

Wrapped in flesh
I toss and turn upon this concrete bed
Bathed in red
I scrape for reasons but they turn to lead
And rot instead
Like a landfill in my head

Oh baby
Can’t you feel what you’ve done to me?
Have mercy on me

I’m still clutching the glove
That your hand slipped out of
It’s black as the love
I mistook for a gift from above
