the borderline
The Borderline

Red and Roses
Lips and Breath
Hair and Dolls
They're look a-like

Smoke and Mist
Night and Midnight
The deep and Hell
They really get me

Flip and Fly
Heal and Feel
Flower and Poison
are on the brink

The Borderline The Borderline

Belly and jell-o
Crack and Jazz
Arch and Bridge
They're look a-like

Meet me and Hit me
Tiny and Sticky Candy
Kiss and Eating
are just same things

Free and Fall and
Love and Low
Evil make you feel good
can't help doing that
