lyrics

You're a velociraptor
Velociwrapped around my neck
You'll always be the answer
Majestic captor of my self-respect

Now did you say something to me?
I can hear you only slightly
Bloodflow constricted to my face
Gone pale in your embrace
I'm OK

Let this heart feed you
Let these lungs feed you
Let this spine feed you
Let me into you
Let me into you
I continue in you

As I am crushed between your jaws
It sometimes gives me pause
The leaves are changing
How sharp and beautiful your teeth
Above me and beneath
You're so amazing

And as I am shaken like a rag doll
See your tail wag
It's all amusing
And although my vision slips away
I know it's not too late
It's just confusing

Let this heart feed you
Let these lungs feed you
Let this spine feed you
Let me into you
Let me into you
I continue in you
