BILLY NOMATES – Blue Bones

Taken from Billy Nomate’s forthcoming album CACTI.

If you wanna die then do it you don’t need my permission
You’ve such an iffy ambition it’s got the better of you
If you really want to go then I don’t think you should stay here
It’s been a pleasure to lay here next to you

But death don’t turn me on like it used to
Koo koo, koo koo
No, ‘cause death don’t turn me on like it used to
Koo koo, koo koo

While living was a burden I put myself in the hospital
Every sunny day is just diabolical
And I dream about the touch of someone like you
If the feeling’s really that strong then lay in your own misery
I want to keep you company
That will scare the life right outta you

But the end don’t get me high like the start do
Koo koo, koo koo
No, ‘cause death don’t turn me on like it used to
Koo koo, koo koo

No, I get it, I do
I had me a death wish too
I’m already late to be so destitute
Not saying I’d save you
Love’s hollowing for the brave few
And maybe we were both born blue

But death don’t turn me on like it used to
Koo koo, koo koo
No, ‘cause death don’t turn me on like it used to
Koo koo, koo koo
No, the end don’t get me high like the start do
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
