about

This is a song about sex.

I was heavily inspired by the work of Perfume Genius for this particular song. His track Queen lists off a bunch of things people like to lobby against members of the gay squad and instead brings them to a positive light, and owns them. This is about not being ashamed of ones orientation and realizing that although there are those that opposes, love prevails.

lyrics

Sword in my side
Snake in the grass
Satan in scarlet
This too shall pass

Snail in my shoes
Nail in the grooves
Sapien ( no homo? )
My impotence broods

Just sing me to sleep
Snap both my teeth
Leave me shaking
Shaking like a leaf

Bathe me in milk
Wrap me in dark
I'm trimmed and treasured
Both sterile and stark

Birth me a king
Rare and ready
I'm calm and cautious
Be slow and steady

Sing me to sleep
Snap both my teeth
Leave me shaking
Shaking like a leaf

Sword in my side
Snake in the grass
Satan in scarlet
This too shall pass...
