Suede

you always felt like suede
there are days i feel your twin
peekaboo
hiding underneath your skin
jets
are revving yes revving
from a central source and this
has power over me
not because you feel something
or don’t feel something for me
but because
mass is so big
it can swallow swallow her whole star intact
call me ‘evil’ call me ‘tide is on your side’
anything that you want

anybody knows you can conjure
anything by the dark of the moon

boy
and if you keep your silence
silencer on you’ll talk yourself right into a job
out of a hole
into my bayou

i’m sure that you’ve been briefed
my absorbtion lines
they are frayed
and i fear
my fear is greater than my faith
but i walk the missionary way
you always felt like suede
there are days i am your twin
peekaboo
hiding underneath your skin
jets
are revving yes revving from
an ether twist
call me ‘evil’
call me ‘tide is on your side’
anything you want

anybody knows you can conjure
anything by the dark of the moon

boy
and if you keep your silence
silencer on you’ll talk yourself right into a job
out of a hole
and into my bayou
into my, my bayou
suede

oh little sister, i hope you didn’t feel that way
oh little sister, i’m glad you came, and i said
oh little sister, i hoped you wouldn’t feel that way
oh little sister, oh again, and i said
oh little sister, i hope you didn’t feel that way
oh little sister, i’m still glad you came, i said
oh little sister, i wish you didn’t feel that way, and
oh little sister, said, i’d do the same, do the same
oh little sister, i hoped you wouldn’t feel that way
oh, i said, i wish
oh little sister, can you forgive me one day
can you forgive me
suede
