I finally had all my ducks in a row
Peace and quiet, a means of subtraction
How she got in, I'm not sure that I know
2 weeks on and my spine was in traction, my eyes in a basket

My guts and my heart are so out of phase
And I can tell she's nobody's daughter
Just not used to these powerful ways
Shot in the brass and I'm taking on water
What am I to do now?

[Hook]
I call on a beautiful witch
The moral compass
Bait n switch

Hide from my physic derailleur
Drive his car to the sea
Spend the night as high as i can In a towering hemlock
But it's not used to be
Always be found
A creature of habit has no real protection
Tell her I'm leaving, she don't settle down
She sees it's a lie on closer inspection
Like everyone else does

Been rubbing a terrible charm
Holding smoke in my arms
I'm just a simple man
Cursed with an honest heart
Watch it go and tear it all apart
