and if the hawks in the trees need the dead
if you're living you don't stand a chance
for a time though you share the same bed
there are only two ends to this dance

you can flee with your wounds just in time
or lie there as he feeds
watching yourself ripped to shreds
and laughing as you bleed

so for those of you falling in love
keep it kind
keep it good
keep it right
throw yourself in the midst of danger
but keep one eye open at night
