Misshapen Love

lyrics

why you wanna go
and wreck my life?
why you wanna go
and bleed me dry?
why do your words
seem so insincere?
why do your intentions
seem so unclear?

they tried to warn me
but I couldn't hear.
the water was rising
the flood was near.
we struck a match
and sang the song
of our hollow, misshapen love.
of our hollow, misshapen love.

how long must we
hold the reins?
how many shoulders
must we place the blame?
when you treat
the ones you love this way
i wonder how you treat
those you hate.

they tried to warn me
but I couldn't hear.
the water was rising
the flood was near.
we struck a match
and sang the song
of our hollow, misshapen love.
of our hollow, misshapen love.

why you wanna go
and wreck my life?
why you wanna go
and bleed me dry?
why do your words
seem so insincere?
why do your intentions
seem so unclear?

they tried to warn me
but I couldn't hear.
the water was rising
the flood was near.
we struck a match
and sang the song.

The St. Louis five piece punk-blues wrecking crew create songs about desperate people doing desperate things in places they shouldn’t be. If there is a jukebox at the end of the universe you will find Kentucky Knife Fight between The Stooges and Tom Waits. ... more
