Whores of Amsterdam

The air doesn’t move
that’s how my tongue fails to find
that pretty groove
that’s how my eyes get left behind
The windows, cracked
let everything fill the empty space
that I always lacked
let’s nail it all down, just in case

Words of the wise:
that’s why all empires burn down
that small demise
that tries not to make a sound

In this crossing
your tongue equals
evil equals
pain equals
welcome me home

You’re so pornographic
I feel just like a voyeur
And I’ve become so sick
of your delusions of grandeur
Drowning in the static
I can see all the allure
You look so intrinsic
So pristine and so impure

Neon lines all burst
that’s when you finally notice
that aching thirst
that makes the craving worth this
The ceiling falls
let’s lie still to meet the sky
Unanswered calls
They want to dissolve the dye

In this crossing
your tongue equals
evil equals
pain equals
welcome me home
Your mouth equals
evil equals
pain equals
welcome me home

You’re so pornographic
I feel just like a voyeur
And I’ve become so sick
of delusions of grandeur
Drowning in the static
I can see all the allure
You look so intrinsic
So pristine and so impure

Your mouth equals
pain equals
evil equals
welcome me home

It’s an honest drug
Lying through bared teeth
A new name for God
For the soil bared beneath
But I would abstain from you
Yes, I would refrain from you
But I’m just not through
I can quit when I want to, but…

…you’re just so pornographic
I feel just like a voyeur
And I’ve become so sick
of delusions of grandeur
Drowning in the static
I can see all the allure
You look so intrinsic
So pristine and so impure
So pornographic
I feel just like a voyeur
so intrinsic
So pristine
so impure
