Royal Flush

your room’s so stale, so stale you’re almost nothing, but you can’t fool me.

I want to feel the grime, breathe the stagnant air, peel and taste away the slime, til there’s color in your face that I can see.

your pasty skin — I want to

your carbon lung — I want you

come on my darlin’

come on my darlin’

come on my darlin’

soon as we play we win

and we can play again

you are like a wall with a hundred doors, up and down, open, closed; scared and confused.

but I’m scared too, you’re like a foreign object, but I know our need’s the same, I know our need’s the same.

you always starved –I want too

now it’s how you cry –I want you

(you’re showing red again)

come on my darlin’ (show me your heart)

show your hand darlin’ (show me your heart)

come on my darlin’

soon as we play we win

and we can play again

(you’re showing red again)

come on my darlin’ (show me your heart)

show your hand darlin’ (show me your heart)

come on my darlin’

soon as we play we win

so let the flood begin

it’s an open window

it’s the flow of blood

it’s a dewdrop rainbow

it’s the pharoah’s flood

it’s an open window, it’s a royal flush

it’s the flow of blood, it’s a royal flush

it’s a sweet cry of love, it’s a royal flush

it’s a royal flush, it’s a royal flush
