sonnerie téléphone portable pour Ketamine for breakfast
Video clip

Now look here, in the house opposite
Black gate posts with a concrete frog squatting on top of it

Through the hallway
Ancient wallpaper
Nicotine gold
Up the stairs rickety
Loaded with history
Here in the top flat
Flowers on the windowsill
Little breeze fluttering the petals as they stare out
At the city streets

Gemma is awake
What woke her

Open eyes
Street lights float slowly through broken blinds

She watches

As the light plays across the tattered carpet
She holds herself tight in the room's half darkness

It's cold
She wedges her hands underneath her armpits

It's 4:18
And gemma's thinking

Before i was a adult
I was a little wreck
Peddling whatever i could get my grubby mitts on

Ketamine for breakfast
Bad girls were drinking with
I gave 'em puppy dog eyes for the acid on their fingertips

Heads in the basement
Lips without faces
Getting faced in, half-baked in a bakery

Eating pastries
Desperate for a body who could save me

But i never really wondered what they gave me
Always wanted something else
Sweating in the door queue
Spittin' like a villain in the pantomime old shoes

Bad teeth

Drinking in the rain with my ghost
Sitting in the back of the class, comatose

Uh, feelings on my back in the dark
Hold me close
But you never held
I did some things i swore i'd never
'til that night you tried to kill me
Run me down with your car in the snow
I didn't realize i thought you would go

Every day i live lives in the day i wake up in
My dreams are all screaming "oh fuck"
But i'm fine now
Something remains its still pulling me

Yah my future is bright but my past tryin' to ruin me

Try to change it but i know
If you're good to me i will let you go
Try to fight it but i'm sure
If you're bad to me i'll like you more

I saw some things when i was young
That made me who i would become
I fill them with me everyday
'cause if you try and run away
They run beside you place for place
Trip you up and drag your face
Freedom out of every waste
They chancing every bit of taste
Heart is sprayed up with the names of all my friends that lost their way

Doesn't change it all remains
It takes my strength and gives me shame
All i want is someone great
To make me everything i ain't

But the only ones for me
Are the ones that shouldn't be

Even though i'm doing good
I'm working hard, my work is strong
Might be fun just for awhile to go back to where my hurt is from

Rinse myself through emptiness and push my body close to anybody who can recognize the presence of my ghost

Try to change it but i know
If you're good to me i will let you go
Try to fight it but i'm sure
If you're bad to me i'll like you more
