​Starving To Death In The Belly Of The Whale

This song is by Hands Like Houses and appears on the album Ground Dweller (2012).

Original video
There's no injection for this, the aching in your lungs
So bite down, but even vipers mind the venom lacing their tongues

Puncture wounds and almost no colour in our skin
And we smashed every vial of the cure
Oh, aren't we vicious when we’re backed against the walls?

I wish you’d just pass me by and we went about our ways
Instead of this bitter exchange of poisonous words

There's no injection for this, the aching in your lungs
So bite down, but even vipers mind the venom lacing their tongues

If the sting would tear you, tear you inside out
Wouldn't it be worth just holding it in, holding it inside?
If the sting would tear you, tear you inside out
Wouldn't it be worth just holding it in, holding it inside?

Revenge should be honey on our tongues
But it's turned to ash in our mouths
Empty out the hives of our honeycomb lungs

Don't we all want to be left alone?
Don't we all want to be left alone?

There's no injection for this, the aching in your lungs
So bite down, but even vipers mind the venom lacing their tongues
