about

A mixture of Greek tragedy and toxic male pathos.

lyrics

Imagine my dismay my darling
After our night of sopping passion
I awoke and found you gone
I scraped my fingers through the empty hole of you
Our sheets were as cold as stone

Wandering these dank and restless halls
Hoping to find you playing the tease
My day ended on the balcony
Screaming your name
Into the wild and empty seas

I want to see you
I want to hold you
Caress your furrow'd brow
I want to feel you
I want to touch you
I want to pin you down

When you said 'Paris' dear I thought you meant France
Not you fleeing With that pimply little queer
All these years you've been singing his name
And whispering poison
Into my desperate ear

Come Back Helen I'll find some way
In my heart, for me to forgive
For one more night my tortured soul
Caressed
Under you loving wing

I want to see you
I want to hold you
Caress your furrow'd brow
I want to feel you
I want to touch you
I want to pin you down
