Song Description

As is so often the case with inspiration, this song was born of sorrow; it is about the collapse of a relationship and the anger created by being unwilling to face its demise.

Story Behind the Song

I was hanging out, wallowing in self-pity and hangover euphoria and this melody popped into my head. The progression proved infectious and the song kind of wrote itself. Isn't getting dumped fantastic inspiration?

Lyrics

I love the nectar in your cinnamon it?s sweet like honey from the tree
Roll the dice maybe we?ll win again I?ll take a chance we gotta wait and see
You summon thunder, I bring the rain it?s hot like summer on this African plain
You feel you?re dying on this crying scorched earth soon you?ll be flying
Crying on the day of your birth

In your mind you find you never wanted, never wanted to give
Now it seems we?ve been caught deep in between
Girl your body it just feels haunted, girl your body it just feels haunted

So what you thought is all I told you
All I said, honey, you don?t care but
All this time I find I?m wasting neath my peace of mind and
You?re still there

So don?t look back on everything you ever, ever wanted to give
Your friends are laughing because you?ve been staffing
Your hospital with overgrown kids

In your mind you find you never wanted, never wanted to give
Now it seems we?ve been caught deep in between
Girl your body it just feels haunted
