Sub Urban – when the flies fell Lyrics

I see the slashes on your legs and the smile on your face again
Blood is drying on your fingernails
Laughing at something that I said
Were you still sitting ‘hind the stairs
With a new boy in your hair when I left
You seemed to recognize my face
But my hands feel like somebody else’s

I blanked last night when you told me
I blanked last night when you told me twice
I blanked last night when you told me
I blanked last night when you told me twice

You cut your hair off with a blade
Didn’t want a single trace o’ that poor girl
The water couldn’t get you clean
So, you burned your skin instead with the curl
(You live in your hell)
I watched an angel cut the sky
Feathers plucked from flight
(Just to torture yourself)
And she sunk right through the ground from colossal heights
(Tell me what could I do)
She cried out for my name, I didn’t hesitate
(The moment when the flies fell)
I screamed, “I cannot be your saint, I know you can’t be saved”


I blanked last night when you told me
I blanked last night when you told me twice
I blanked last night when you told me
I blanked last night when you told me twi-
I blanked last night when you told me
I blanked last night when you told me twice
I blanked last night when you told me
I blanked last night when you told me twice
