This song is by The Mars Volta and appears on the album Noctourniquet (2012).

I must've crawled through your bedroom door in a fit of jealous breath.
Perched upon the blackest foot of your unsuspecting bed.
From the blossom rags in my jackal croon to the stems of the cinquefoil

And all the rats in the cellar form our verminal steps 'cause you know they're gonna take me to you
Yeah to you

All the traps in the cellar go clickety-clacl 'cause you know I always set them for you
