Lyric:

I hate you, I love you
Leave…
Don’t go away
I Can’t decide if
I like your face
Or if I wish
It would stray
You’re a child but
You’re malicious
You’re sweet but
Don’t remember my name
heads I win
And tails I’m lost
And love equals pain

I am drifting
Without an anchor
Through your ambiguous region
A strange continent
Immune to all reason
And I’m flattered by
Your grey matter

Inside my skin
I feel your tongue
Telling me I’m dirty
And licking my bones
A scrape against silence
A knife against a plate
Makes the sound
Of need on hate

I am drifting
Without an anchor
Through your ambiguous region
A strange continent
Immune to all reason
And I’m flattered by
Your grey matter

And I do not understand
Why a woman can’t
Just love a man

You’re amusing
You’re a real cool show
With your meat hooks
And barbed wire carnival
You got gold dust in your pocket
You got moth holes in your soul
From too many false teeth
And greasy flash bulbs

I am drifting
Without an anchor
Through your ambiguous region
A strange continent
Immune to all reason
And I’m flattered
And I’m flattered
By Your grey matter
