Wintersleep /

Jaws of Life

Hold me like a child
In your warm, warm arms
Whisper parables
Keep me safe from harm

Oh, my sagging skin
Oh, my burning sky
I will close my eyes
I will close my eyes

There was laughter once
There were pretty songs
Pull the metal shards
Thin my clotted blood

Oh, my rotted skin
Oh, my burning sky
I will close my eyes
I will close my eyes

Oh, the jaws of life
Oh, the jaws of life
Oh, the jaws of life
