I looked my name up
To get sick of myself
I’d been taking my cues
From the book of revelations
And been horrified
To find
I’m so capable of making a mess
And it’s hard to find love
Buried under duress
Oh no

So we waited this out
Outside the burrow
With teeth and nail
We shadowed our sorrows
Like a hunter
Oh nose to the ground
Just sniffing for clues
Till we found out
It was both of us
Looking for you
Oh no

So baby I’d be horrified
To find
I’d been the thorn in your side
All this time
So if you need to cut me out
Then cut me
But please make sure that I die

But don’t
Don’t you let me down
Easy or in pieces
I can take it
All at once

Bees die when they leave the sting in the flesh
So you’re killing me
But at least I know I stung you the best
I’ll be fossilised
Little wings trapped in crystallised sap
You could wear me like a pendant
Would you like me like that?
Oh no?
On with the show

Baby I’d be horrified
To find
I’d been the thorn in your side
All this time
So if you need to cut me out
Then cut me
But please make sure that I die

But don’t
Don’t you let me down
Easy or in pieces
I can take it
All at once
