Baroness Chlorine & Wine Lyrics

When I called on my nursemaid

Come sit by my side

But she cuts through my ribcage

And pushes the pills deep in my eyes

The taste was much sweeter

Than chlorine and wine

And my doctor’s unable

To cut through cable that leads to my mind

In spite of the winter

There’s ways to keep warm

Whatever you give me

Please know that I’ll ask you for more

The day I stopped swimming

And came out of the tide

I’d never felt so uncomfortably dumb

Here by your side

Black rose on the bed

Turn me to fire

Black rose in the vein

Shine in your eye

Please

Don’t lay me down

Under the rocks where I found

My place in the ground

A home for the fathers and sons

Black rose on the bed

Turn me to fire

Black rose in the vein

Shine in your eye

Please

Don’t lay me down
