grey matter lyrics – jewel

i hate you, i love you
leave, please
don’t go away
can’t decide if
i like your face
or if i wish
it would stray
you’re a child but
you’re malicious
you’re sweet but
don’t remember my name
and heads you win
and tails i’m lost
and love equals pain

i am drifting
without an anchor
through your ambigous region
a strange continent
immune to all reason
and i’m flattered by
your grey matter

inside my skin
i feel your tongue
telling me i’m dirty
and licking my bones
a surge against silence
a knife across a plate
makes the sound
of need on hate

i am drifting
without an anchor
through your ambigous region
a strange continent
immune to all reason
and i’m flattered by
your grey matter
and i do not understand
why a woman can’t
just love a man

you’re amusing
you’re a real cool show
with your meat hooks
and barbed wire carnival
you got glitter in your pocket
you got mothb*lls in your soul
from too many false teeth
and greasy flash bulbs

i am drifting
without an anchor
through your ambigous region
a strange continent
immune to all reason
and i’m flattered by
your grey matter

i love you
i hate you
