Our first song ever upgraded for our first album. Freshman in high school rock


Feed me your boilin blood
Cut your wrist and let it flow
Let it burn my tongue
Let it slide, down my throat
Feed me your tears, off of your cheek
Let them fill my lungs
I don't care if they drown me

You've been walkin in my heart and I know that I love you
You've been walkin in your tears
Let me shine your shoes

There's a place in my heart for your disease
Get yourself a broom
Sweep it inside please
If my eyes turn red, don't tell me nothin
It's better to die without knowin that I've sinned

You've been walkin in my eyes and I can't see
No one, but you
You've been walkin in your tears
Let me shine your shoes

I'd rather die than see you bleed
I'm right here for anything you need
I'm not your dog baby but can't you see, I just
Can't bear to see tears on your shoes now

I put your red on tables, and chairs
I break them back beyond, repair
You come over and see they aren't there
It's all for you baby

I'm just shinin your shoes
I just can't bear to see tears, on your shoes
