lyrics

The Murderer

In my dream I have bound you
And I grab you by the scruff,
Drag you howlin’ down the stairs
Where you’ll hang upside-down and
Scream out your lungs and die.

In another I’ve found you,
And you’re burnt out in your car,
And you’re choking on the flames.
Through your distended eyes you
See me standing by as I watch you die.

If I’m right, if I’m wrong,
When I wake and I’m strangling the
Sheets where he’d lain. Now my
Lover only sleeps in the stain, like a
Throat-cut dog at your feet. When you wake
I’ll be gone.
