Stand up straight at the foot of your love
I lift my shirt up
Stand up straight at the foot of your love
I lift my shirt up

I'll rest my eyes till the fevers outta me
I'll rest my eyes to the rivers in the sea
I'll rest my eyes till the fevers outta me
I'll rest my eyes to the rivers in the sea

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I'll never marry but Ohio don't remember me

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I'm on a blood buzz
Yes I am
I'm on a blood buzz
I'm on a blood buzz
God I am
I'm on a blood buzz

Lay my head on the hood of your car
I'll take it too far
Lay my head on the hood of your car
I'll take it too far

I'll rest my eyes till the fevers outta me
I'll rest my eyes to the rivers in the sea
I'll rest my eyes till the fevers outta me
I'll rest my eyes to the rivers in the sea

I'm on a blood buzz
Yes I am
I'm on a blood buzz
I'm on a blood buzz
God I am
I'm on a blood buzz

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I'll never marry but Ohio don't remember me

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I'm on a blood buzz
Yes I am
I'm on a blood buzz
I'm on a blood buzz
God I am
I'm on a blood buzz

    "floors falling out" from under you is like you losing your footing, losing your ground, losing your balance, it's like a chaos you can not control.

    however I know english but I couldn't understand completely what he means singing the words.. I wish I could get it. for example what it means: floors are falling out from everybody I know? fall out is like ''occur'' here?
    ohh I wish.. I like the song..

    It must be about making and smoking dmt from a blood red solution . The bottom falling off and carried by a swarm of bees.

    I think it is the story of someone from a smalltown moving to a larger city by no choice of their own and subsequently falling between the cracks of the city into an opiate addiction and being forced intp prostitution as a result. Pretty nasty really

    I never married but ohio don't remember me - i was not famous lover but people don't remember me; stand up straight at the foot of your love - now i can see you clear, when some time has passed; i still owe money to the money to the money i owe, i never thought about love when i thought about home = i couldn't fall in love with anybody while thinking i don't belong here; the floors are falling out from everybody i know - i cannot count on anybody cause they are in the same situations as i am.
