Every single night I endure the flight
Of little whims of white flame
Butterflies in my brain
These ideas of mine percolate the mind
Trickle down the spine
Form the belly swelling to a blaze

That's where the pain comes in
Like a second skeleton
Trying to fit beneath the skin
I can't get the feelings in

Every single nights a light
With my brain

And I say to her
Why'd I say it to her
What does she think of me
That I'm not what I ought to be
That I'm what I try not to be
Has got to be somebody else's fault
I can't get caught

If what I am is what I am
Cuz I does what I does
Then brother get back cuz my breast gonna bust open
The rib is the shell and the heart is the yolk
And I just made a meal for us both to choke on

Every single nights a fight
With my brain

I just wanna feel everything x3

So I'm gonna try to be still now
Gonna renounce the mill a little while
And if we had a double king size bed
We could move in it and I'd soon forget

If what I am is what I am
Cuz I does what I does
And maybe I'd relax let my breast just bust open
My hearts made of parts of all that's around me
And that's why the devil just can't get around me

Every single nights alright
Every single nights a fight
Every single fights alright
With my brain

I just wanna feel everything

    It sounds like she is having an internal battle.. Attempting to reconcile who she is with who she bellieves she should be.. But she cannot run away from her true self.
