Taste The Mercury

A Small Victory

We're driving past

Unspoiled road signs

Gleaming in the moon light

To trace edge of

That bitter sweet coastline

That keeps us captive

By our pupils

Again captive 'til we get home

And baby I know

That you haven't seen sleep

Since I've been gone

But I'll keep my promises to you

And wake up alone

'Til we're there

This isn't at all

Like wind biting our face

This isn't at all

Like winter

Not at all

Now the coal burns red

And warming every inch

Of our chests again

Now the coal burns red

It's our reminder

That this kiss goes on

With or without you

So stop trying to pretend

Yhat you don't love

The taste of mercury

From my lips

Eating and beating

It's way through your veins
