​Desertbed

This song is by Crime in Stereo and appears on the album Selective Wreckage (2008).

It's like we're in a bad dream
Bolt upright at night
Trying not to scream awake
To our backs facing while you sleep

Then surface just long enough to breathe
Spines interlocked like faulty cogs in a failed machine

Give yourself away, I am the key
Give yourself away, a worn, thin skeleton swinging crookedly
Give yourself away, grinning copper teeth
Come open up for me

It's just like we're bad friends
Both wasting our time
As our picket fence defends
All the things we must protect

Pretending that we still can connect
Is our sole defense, as the present tense begins its slow descent

Give yourself away, I am the key
Give yourself away, a worn, thin skeleton swinging crookedly
Give yourself away, grinning copper teeth
Come open up for me

You give yourself away
You give yourself away
You give yourself away
You give yourself away
