lyrics

We are such easy marks, adhered by virtue as we are
Too closely defined, like a skin stretched
Tight across ideals, the tribal drum
A sounding board, for someone

And the night is dark and cold
But the moon shines like hell
You say it's love
I say possession

I've go someone inside of me
I can lose myself for hours at a time

You rubbed me the wrong way, tension staggered me
So much polarity, opposites attract they say
Well, it's hard to progress, when you know it all
Let's throw is up against the wall

And the night is dark and cold
But the moon shines like hell
You say it's love
I say possession

I've go someone inside of me
I can lose myself for hours at a time

Someone's dancing on our grave
Oblivious to what they gave
Our pleasure comes from above but heaven's here on earth
They dry their eyes, try to hide their mirth

And the night is dark and cold
But the moon shines like hell
You say it's love
I say possession

I've go someone inside of me
I can lose myself for hours at a time
