It’s me having dinner in a fancy restaurant
Me with my favourite clothes on: black shirt and skirt
Me with a colored eyelid, ruby on my lips
Me sitting so still – you speak
With a piece of spinach right between your teeth
My hands squeeze up the napkin on my knees

There’s fire, and the air is getting thick,
you know there’s fire
and the moon is much too big
there is fire, and swallow heated stones
you know there’s fire
melting down my bones

It’s you playing execution once again
You in your favourite role, your favourite skin
You cutting up the thread held in my hands
You making me beg some harder punishment
Your gravity is more than I can bear, I’m a satellite
And wherever you may go, I will be there

There’s fire…

It’s me sitting in a room beside your bed
Me without my guilt, there’s nothing to repent
Me with my colored eyelid, more ruby on my lips
Me sitting so still – you sleep
And I wonder if I’ll ever learn to be a little bit harder
A teardrop’s falling down upon my knee
I wonder if I’ll ever learn to choose a little bit wiser
It wouldn’t be that bad sometimes to lose you
