This apartment leaks and swells
its soaks my toes it moans and wails
you better call the doctor you better call the nurse
my little home it aches and hurts
patch it up soaked in sin burn it to the ground and start over again

open windows bring the breeze
stoke the fire under lock and key
you better burn to ashes better burn to dust
pile up the furniture
breathing smoke and drinking blood you call it chaos i call it love

paint our faces with the ash that remains
were gonna dance around and bring the rain
water come and wash it all away
see that sunrise brand new day

little darlin show your teeth
take a bite lick it clean
mass production movie scene
cut the suture and set it free
boiling blood making steam walk on fire to taste the pain

i got something that you need
skipping stones on gasoline
my surrender is my release
and my desire i need to feed
boiling blood making steam i'm on fire
