Barons of Suburbia

Barons of Suburbia
take another piece of my
good graces
I’m in my war
you’re in yours
do we fight for peace
as they take another piece of us
But baby I would let
your darkness
invade me
you could maybe turn this white light
into navy
before you leave

It was a slight miscalculation
that my friends
my friends would be waiting
on the other side of the bridge
on the other side of this
this mole hill of a mountain
this potion
now a poison
they’re on the other side
of right
we’re on the other side
of her
midnight

When it’s all said and done
we will lose a piece
to a carnivorous vegetarian
Barons of suburbia
I have heard you pray
before you devour her
So baby will you let my darkness
invade you
You always liked your wafer sweet
in the middle
before you leave

It was a slight miscalculation
That our friends
our friends would be waiting
on the other side of the bridge
on the other side of this
this mole hill of a mountain
this potion
now a poison
they’re on the other side
of right
we’re on the other side
of her
midnight

I am piecing a potion
To combat your poison

She is Risen
She is Risen
Boys
