scared i’m not going to be there when the other shoe drops
and it’s all gonna be fucked away
with the whirlwind i’m behind;
chasing storms
like it was all i was meant for

let me into your sweet heart
so i can show you how sour it really is

if you hold my hand i can promise you it won’t be so lonely
and you can let go whenever
because it’s all the same to me

i’ve been down here more times than i can possibly stomach
and walked all the way back
more times
than you can
possibly
fathom

i’m way deeper than you ever thought i could be
when the bad things bleed,
that’s how you know that it’s me

 

mael-strom noun
a powerful whirlpool in the sea or a river.

a situation or state of confused movement or violent turmoil.
