Zola Jesus – Lick The Palm Of The Burning Handshake lyrics

When they call you name out of the ground
And you say it don't hurt when I'm going alone
And you know I don't hurt but I keep it strong
And I try not to go
I just won't I you know
The need to know it takes you over
Takes you over
The need to grow it takes you all in
Takes you all in
To the listen again and again
Takes you over again and again

Takes you over
I'm the only one that makes you stop
And I know the... Is going down
When you say you don't see the pain in my eyes
Do you really want to bring the fire outside
I don't want you to go
In my eyes I'll never show
You need to know it takes you over
Takes you over...
