A SOUTHERN HORROR, 2010

Flood

 

You want me to write it in blood

You want me to swear on my life

if you wanna see blood just hand me a knife

 

It’s been a long time coming and we both know

So lets both try and act civilized

I found another woman don’t act so surprised

 

And now your banging on my chest asking why i gave up

Wondering why I haven’t teared up

Well, we’ve cried enough to flood a thousand homes

and I wont stick around till there’s nothing left but the bones

 

We fight and we fight lord knows we’ve tried

I punched a hole in the wall instead of you last night

If we don’t stop this train were bound to collide

 

I ain’t saying that I’m trading you in

But we ain’t married so this ain’t a divorce

But it’s safe to say that its run its course

 

And now your banging on my chest asking why i gave up

Wondering why I haven’t teared up

Well, we’ve cried enough to flood a thousand homes

and I wont stick around till there’s nothing left but the bones
