​Don't Take Off The Gloves

This song is by Owl John and appears on the album Owl John (2014).

She's across the ring, spitting pink, menace flicking slurs
I'm on the floor, wretched ball, poet with my words
So come at me with that savage streak, howling to be loved
Just don't take off the gloves

Two vicious drunks' teeth have sunk into an open wound
Connection lost as though I caught dementia from the moon
So come at me when I'm weak, degraded, and undone
Just don't take off the gloves

That sucker punch, that brittle touch
And the cut keeps dripping but the blood won't thicken
There's poison in the tap water
There's poison in the tap water

That sucker punch, that brittle touch
And the cut keeps dripping but the blood won't thicken
There's poison in the tap water
There's poison in the tap water

Here it falls again by buried green on bare electric wire
How we find this demon lights a heavy-handed fire
We're kissing drinks, spilling wind, howling to be loved
Oh don't take off, don't take off the gloves

That sucker punch, that brittle touch
And the cut keeps dripping but the blood won't thicken
There's poison in the tap water
There's poison in the tap water

That sucker punch, that brittle touch
And the cut keeps dripping but the blood won't thicken
There's poison in the tap water
There's poison in the tap water
