Exit Everything (Howard Rowland S.)

This is a warning A gun-to-the-head thing This is a sign A don't-get-out-of-bed thing The sky was deep And the wind was hot And I tried to speak But I could not The telephone rang like church bells Jesus Christ I've gone to hell A powder burn to the face To remember you by A powder burn to the lips It'll make you cry A blazing blister kiss My love, don't you even try To remember this Exit everything Nodding dogs and valium Let's make this whole world Spin like a top And then stop Exit everything Here we go again One more time Out of the black And into the ether... The windows blew out As you blew in You wore the smell of success I wore the taste of sin With every lie I did you in Now the siren slowly spins It'll never last I backed away from the stars Because the light cut my skin Like shards of glass And the cordite sting I'm far too late, I'm far too thin I've lost it all, that's everything I don't feel a thing You know you probably heard her It was the sound of murder You know, maybe you heard her This is the sound of murder Exit everything Nodding dogs and valium Let's make this whole world Spin like a top And then stop Exit everything Exit everything Torch the throne, kill the king And teach the whole world to sing Exit everything
