This is the first single from our second album, Chrysanthemum.


i fell in love with a demon

retracing my steps in the snow
regurgitational madness overflows
using me for your vindictive ways
your poisoned halls calling safety draw me closer
feeding into deeper wounds of shame

where’d i go? i can’t explain
empty hole, encased in blame
yellow pills of feathered memories light my way

give me all your heart desires
regurgitational madness overflows

lost in a loop, obsessed
orange hair caressed
sweet melodies unraveled in the night

retracing my steps in the snow a
tiger sniffing the rose
catching up to this figure inside me
she turns

and her body’s wrapped in plastic
and her body’s wrapped in plastic

fallen angels understand
tired of all this world demands
fallen angels understand
tired of all your world demands

leave it all behind

give me
all your heart desires
give me
your heart
