lyrics

Last night I saw the earth devour the horizon
it’s like the last time we kissed
on the night that gave me command to subjugate this wicked land
I’ll make you happy, girl. You don’t have a say in this

There’s a trail of girls between you and me
they’re only territory

Baby, I swear that I am a changed man
it only took the sting of a thousand poison blades to remind me of your hand
stopped reading Henry Miller, started reading Emily Post
now I know the right hand to hold you with when I toast

It took so much sin just to break you in
and now you’re sitting at the foot of my bed
with your Christian mouth and your Christian tongue
and your Christian knees that bend down for another man
I think you grew up wrong, you grew up too strong
and sometimes I think your thighs could crush me in your sleep
I wanna kiss you in the room you were born in
My darling, this is our place now

Outside these gates, are the busts of every woman that I once loved
and they’re waiting on a train (Only Territory)
pressing tiny flowers into books they cannot pray
now here’s your last empty volume and here is your last bouquet

There is nothing left between you and me
You’re only territory
