Grey Matter

I hate you, I love you
Leave, please
Don’t go away
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
And heads you win
And tails I’m lost
And love equals pain

I am drifting
Without an anchor
Through your ambigous region
A strange continent
I’mmune 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 surge against silence
A knife across a plate
Makes the sound
Of need on hate

I am drifting
Without an anchor
Through your ambigous region
A strange continent
I’mmune 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 glitter in your pocket
You got mothballs in your soul
From too many false teeth
And greasy flash bulbs

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

I love you
I hate you
