Birdeatsbaby – Tenterhooks lyrics

Waste my time and suffer this
Weight of envy weak in bliss
All strung out under these eyes
Captive by my own device

Heaven speaks a different tongue
Yours is silver and undone
Taste like sulphur and of soot
Hanging by these tenterhooks

Drag me up from under dust
Shake me wake me up
To just pull me back under
My wishful thinking
Head on a plate for a stranger
I've said too much
I'm rolling in sickness
I dragged you up into this lust
We must face the thunder

You can't see the woods for the trees
You can't see the woods for the trees
The bitch was all over me

You got me hanging by tenterhooks
You got me hanging by tenterhooks

Leave your scars I want you to
Creep the lines the edge of you
I will beg for what you took
Hanging by these tenterhooks

Drag me up from under dust
Shake me wake me up
To just pull me back under
My wishful thinking
Head on a plate for a stranger
I've said too much
I'm rolling in sickness
I dragged you up into this lust
We must face the thunder

You can't see the woods for the trees
You can't see the woods for the trees
The bitch was all over me

You got me hanging by tenterhooks
You got me hanging by tenterhooks
