Glasgow Laugh

The state I’m in
Can’t really breathe
A skeleton grin
I lick my teeth
Sipping daiquiri
Right from the soft cup
Just move with me
Don’t want to fuck this up

And I’ll make you smile
And stain the pure white tiles
We will be here awhile
So make it easier
and worthwhile

It’s at its end
Soon you’ll breathe
Now take your hands
Out from between your teeth
Trickling down
To the ground, the taste
Copper unbound
Spread your cheeks, scream the haze

And I’ll make you smile
And stain the pure white tiles
We will be here awhile
So make it easier
and worthwhile
And I’ll make you laugh
Like it’s all just the past
White knuckles holding fast
Just release it
and crash

Let it sink in
Who really breathes?
With lips and stray skin
Caught between teeth

And I’ll make you smile
And stain the pure white tiles
We will be here awhile
So make it easier
and worthwhile
And I’ll make you laugh
Like it’s all just the past
White knuckles holding fast
And I’ll make you smile
Just release it
and crash
and crash
and crash
crash
