the house was pretty and the yard was wide
and I felt strong, with you at my side.
your eyes at night, had a beautiful glowing in them.
and I knew in my heart, just what was growing in them.
ah, but you made me drink poison.
it felt smooth running down my throat.
I love you. and you made me drink poison.
it was cool and smooth and sweet.
do you remember...
we had a bed of daisies thriving in the yard,
and I quit my job, so I could hold you all the time.
I tried to stop the thing matastasizing in us,
but in the warm, slow evening,
I could feel it rising in us.
ah, and you made me drink poison.
it felt so smooth, sliding down my throat.
I love you so much. and you made me drink poison.
it was cool and smooth and sweet and cool
and smooth and sweet and cool and smooth.
