lyrics

I know when you can't care for me anymore
It's because you've changed
We met when I was face down on the bathroom floor
And my pants were stained
And now you've found some hotdog that wasn't rolled across the ground
Well we're both only subs for some filet that's not around

So please
Please
If you have to leave don't do it slowly

I know when I can't say I love you anymore
It's because you've stayed
I haven't seen the outside of this studio apartment
Since the last time I got paid
And while two weeks worth of work is sucked into my face
I gave you all the breathing room of an Amazonian snake

So please
Please
If you have to leave don't do it slowly

If I want to be the babe that suckles from your breast
If I want to profit from your taste for helplessness

Then I understand if you can't help but give me everything
When I asked for more
They only come to me as mothers come to orphans
Because they're forced
I wonder if empty space desires to be full
If fawning futility thinks itself beautiful

Please
Please
If you have to leave don't do it slowly
