elephian lyrics – dead flowers

you hold the match still burning up against the palm of your hand
the smell of smoke seeps through the room, the room in which i stand
you don’t seem to like the chair that your back is perched against
you don’t seem to be that aware
that bit, that bit i understand
and now it’s time for you to bed a smile comes across
green robe covers like a pin soaked in a pennywise pocket gin
you think i’m lucky not to pay the rent, you think i’ve fallen for a fool
you always were hard on you
that bit, that bit i understand
with watered eyes you look an angel, that bodies shaking through the floor
i know that i’ve caused all your sorrow i know you should have gotten more
it’s not something i ever planned it’s not some evil i’ve had before
there’s just one thing i can’t understand
why would you ever want a man
