lyrics

Lyrics by Christopher Seymore
Music by Son of Bitch

The Greenfield Strangler

It’s goin’ off like firecrackers held inside my hand
My fingers pop like balloons on your cheaply rented lawn
And I can still feel your breath creepin’ up my neck
It’s that deep darkness that won’t let you forget

Your face lines the shelves of all my wicked thoughts
It’s creeping down the hallways, kicking over bottles
It’s like a phantom pain from a severed limb
Just that deep darkness that’s drawing me in

Oh oh, it’s like slow burning whiskey
Oh oh, only good when it’s gone

Just some resin scraped from the bowl
The ghost of something good that’s already used
This bottle kisses me girl but I wished it was you
Just that deep darkness that clings to me like glue

Know why did it, why you had to leave
You had to get free from its spindle iron grip
But that Greenfield Strangler, it’s not done with me yet
It’s that deep darkness that starts to feel like a friend

Oh oh, it’s like slow burning whiskey
Oh oh, only good when it’s gone
