lyrics

Lodged in my trachea - hell's grim assassin
Everything's going wrong, just don't listen
I never thought it could be so observant
bragging the undertow, a drip dried servant
Minnie the lane wouldn't think twice, dragging you down
You'd be surprised what a fine sheet, April in heat
Lodged in my trachea - hell's grim assassin
Everything's going wrong, just don't listen
Who ever thought it would kick like a turnstyle
Swimming you up the stairs, the rip tide
Look at the blood!
Tonight night ight ght ht t..t...t....t.
