lyrics

You fill my heart up like a test tube
Experimenting with my rescue
Labrat love is no long-term cure
But it's all I have for now for you.
I broke my soul out of the young cage
Returning it in turn for old age
Laboured love is like a stuck page
But it's all I have for now in truth.

My heart's dissected on your slate
My insides burning with bouquets
Blood roses bloom for you
Blood roses bloom for you.

You kill the murder in my make-up
Building bridges in my break-up
Liberated from my kingdom come
But I'm all I have for now for you.
I spoke the sonnet of the senses
Responding with my gut reflexes
Exploration of my guesses says,
All in all I'm just a part of you.

My heart's dissected on your slate
My insides burning with bouquets
Blood roses bloom for you
Blood roses bloom for you.
