HULLS

these people

what are your friends for

you wished it could help you

you better get used to

we don't sleep much

we're looking for trouble

we saw a downside

I was your lover

 

now I hold back

when I talk to you

when I'm blacked out

and you're biased

cause I'm keeping you close to me

I grab your arm hard

to make you hit me

to make it hurt less

to even wait here

 

and he’s a madman

he’s my trouble

it's not right, now

he’s my burden

 

and I talk loud

I push right back

when he’s my trouble

my trouble

to ask me to hit him

till words got out

 

and he’s a madman

he’s my trouble

it's not right, now

he’s my burden

 

and the women

they sing in their low keys

they sing, how did they get here

I wish they could carry me over the waters

but I cannot say anything

this is a secret

you took me out here

you walked on a limb for me

 

and he’s my sadness

he's my trouble

it's not right, now

he's my burden

 

he is my trouble

I was your lover

I was your lover

and now he's over land and seas

now he's over land and seas

now he's over land and seas

he's my burden
