Chinese Burn That Horseshoe Birthmark

lyrics

Mother I refuse
I'll beg & bruise
This is the last crown I can lose
There's sour in your flowers
Rust in your blues
A black cap judgement for the accused

A dream that smoked you thin
Your skin wrapped in rain
But oh that crooked smile tattooed on my brain
Higher in the tide
A coat-tail to hold
The debts just wear you frail
A kiss unresolved

I've only your drunk mother's aim
To hide from and crawl out unscathed
Those heels that are tapping at my spine
And wrecking ball tremors that remind me what's in front of my eyes

Mother I refuse
I'll beg & bruise
This is the last crown I can lose
But little does she know
She's in my bones
Sweetening the pill
Stirring my soul

I've only a fraction of your whole
And a billion won't cover your one
Just the radio static replies
And wrecking ball tremors that remind me what's in front of my eyes
