lyrics

I wanna get down with my hemlock girl
when she gets back from the underworld
i wanna steal away in the dead of night
i wanna disappear in the dying light
i wanna stare into the haze myopic
i wanna get high borderline psychotic

i wanna gaze into the scanner darkly
i wanna go back to her apartment
hunt her down with a poison arrow
say goodbye to the straight and narrow
I wanna fall down stairs to the bottom
fade away into a dream narcotic

I’ve been sinking so low
there’s not much deeper to go
it’s such a long, long way down
She’ll never come back around

i wanna get down with my hemlock girl
spiral stairs into the underworld
I want to walk across that bridge at night
hold a steel rod in a field of lightning
i don’t even want to try to fix her
Just paint a dark, cloudy picture
