I see you picturing me in bed
And that’s how I know you haven’t heard a single word that I’ve sang or that I’ve said
The truth is, if you ever got inside
You’d see a lot more dark than light
And that’s fine
By me, that’s fffine.
Just feels good just to say.

That I’ll surprise
You can’t separate me from my
Beautiful eyes
Exterior guise
But baby I taste like honey and knives
Honey and knives
Honey and knives

The cutting edge of her mind
Slips from her tongue all gooey-like
And she sings with a voice so sweet
You’d like to lick
But unfortunately voices
Can only be swallowed
By those who own them.

So that’s fine
You can’t separate me from
My beautiful eyes
Or my lame fuckin’ disguise
But baby down inside
I’m honey and knives
Honey and knives

You just think I’m nice
So it’ll burn twice as much
When I slice you open
And pour honey in the wounds
Can you imagine something sweeter?
What could be sweeter?
What could be sweeter?
What could be sweeter?
