I want control of things I can’t know, like what’s in your mind
When you’re twitching at night? And I can’t relax until you’re staring back
When I exhale, it’s an animal’s breath,
For once not obsessed with survival, at best.
You make the predators rest in me
Kill the ambivalence, nobody’s innocent
I’ve never been fearless; I’ll shatter that image
Don’t get upset, don’t get obsessed
Give it a rest or get cut again
You make the chemicals settle in me
You bypassed the obstacles, told me it’s possible
We can abandon it all on a houseboat in Canada
The weeks, they bleed, the seasons, they sneak
A garden of weeds, a carpet of leaves
Can you make the sedatives last in me?
Can you make the chemicals settle in me?
Can you make the predators rest in me?
