The Japanese House - Teeth

I’m still burned and my blood creeps
I’m the sun-flooded mouth and I cannot speak
I’m the scars upon your knees
I’m the scrapes of iron your skin breathes
I could be anything

And it was so brief
A kick in the teeth
Oil and powdered lungs
Because i know how to breathe
And it was so brief
I want more time for luck
And then I go again

You're the movements in my sleep
You are the words I couldn't keep
I saw the fumes and watched them seep
Into the wounds you bear to bleed
I could lose everything

And it was so brief
A kick in the teeth
Oil and powdered lungs
Because i know how to breathe
And it was so brief
I want more time for luck
And then I go again

You love
When I saw you
