lyrics

Morning ring out, church bells in C
Throwin’ sticks at my heart like stones at the sea
On the day Moses comes, don’t you worry ‘bout me
I’ll be drinking the blood of a sailor

I do what I have to for love to survive
I get through the night
Get through the night

My world formed from a void, born bearin’ light
I can still taste your skin when your impulse is kind
Eating fruit from the hand that carried the vine
Maybe now I’m meeting my maker

I do what I have to for love to survive
I get through the night
Get through the night

I would love you to death, be your last sin
Then die at your neck for still taking you in
So close to you now and the rush of your gin
I want love but I settle for Poison

I do what I have to for love to survive
I get through the night
Get through the night

I want Love but I'd settle for Poison
