​Octopus

This song is by Jonathan Coulton.

I still remember the words you said
They were hard enough to leave a mark
And now they echo inside my head
As I spiral down into the dark

I windmill upside down
Knowing you'll come at me again
And I feel your shadow
Pass above me

Octopus
Some kind of octopus
Tearing my shell apart
Letting the sea get in
You make my insides
Outside

I don't think I ever saw you blink
You were so controlled and no one knew
And by the time we all stopped to think
We were already too close to you

Now you keep coming by
Tellin' me it's not what I think
But I know a murder
When I see one

Octopus
Some kind of octopus
Tearing my shell apart
Letting the sea get in
You make my insides
Outside

Far above me I can see the world (see the world)
Receding slowly out of you
The sinking feeling that my worst mistake (worst mistake)
Was all the time I spent with you

Said you're sorry, you said you'd try
But you never did, I guess we're done
The bits and pieces of me float by
And I die in front of everyone

And you're already gone
Halfway to wherever you sleep
And you make me wish I
Never met you

Octopus
Some kind of octopus
Tearing my shell apart
Letting the sea get in
You make my insides
Outside
