I Like Pretending

from Kiss + Swallow by IAMX



Your silver skin that crawls in rhythm, sweats like spring
Returns me
To the death wish

And all my epiphanies that branded me and broke my knees
Confirms me
Into the death wish

Misfits for free, a gravity pure expression tears
And pulls them
Into the death wish

And all our accessories that concentrate the pain and tease
Embrace them
With the deathwish

Are we pretending?
’cause I like pretending

Are we machines obsolete, alone
With symbiotic
Self indulgence?

And if we dig deep, the circuitry burnt out bends
Into neurotic

But your silver skin soothes my aching curses and
Reminds me
That you’re worth it

The whole world’s insanities, the bleeding hearts and tragedies
Won’t distract me
From the deathwish

Are we pretending?
’cause I like pretending
