Listen through the walls, the wave has got to break soon
Only so many nails to a room, only so much could it support
The floorboards sigh to the sway of the dance that keeps going all night
And peel away the dawn

And I am a peach down in the forest
Of knives, and snakes, and mesquite
Where all is a dream, all eyes on me
And I bite my nails 'til they bleed

I see your clothes come off and your knees come out
Like an iceberg, like a secret offer
Sailing the waves of that icy morning
While all in between there's a new wind blowing

And I am a peach down in the forest
Of knives, and snakes, and mesquite
Where all is a dream, all eyes on me
And I bite my nails 'til they bleed

Yes, I am a peach down in the forest
Of knives, and snakes, and mesquite
Where all is a dream, all eyes on me
And I bite my nails 'til they bleed

The prevailing winds from the east
I will set my sights on defeat
