lyrics

They're wrapped around your finger
Marionettes on a string
Want something give a wiggle
They come a-runnin' when you ring

You tied your knot around me
but I slipped that flimsy thing
You try your best to ground me
But I keep on taking wing

Meet me down by the river
Bring your bag and bring your stones
You want blood and I'll deliver
One of us will take the long way home

Under a waning moon
White as anger, black as fear
Wrote my name in salt & ashes
Lilac flower and a lover's tear

You cast your pain in circles
You wanna make it disappear
You want a vessel for it
Well honey, you won't find it here

Meet me down by the river
Bring your bag and bring your stones
You want blood and I'll deliver
One of us will take the long way home
