I swear your love is like candy
Amber glean within your eyes
And a sleepy waning mixture
Of your loving and your lies
Like a symphony of cries
I am not prepared to hold you 
Or the amber in your eyes

Ive got a wax cap over me
Now I am the honey
Waiting on the bees
Waiting on the world
To devour me
Fermented and dripping
From all this time
In the sweet crystal slime
Missing all of mine
Missing all of mine

And she cracks like
Hard candy
Tossing on the tongue
In love but on the run
And she is inside of me
In on in on in
On in on in on in 
She splits wide open
Just like the pages of a book
And I slept real soundly
Through all of the time it took
And now I’m hooked
And she’s addicted to the honey
So my goose is cooked
She peeled back the wax cap
And took a taste and took a look

Honey drips like syrup
On a hot summer day
In the winter it’s molasses
Won’t come out to play
Without a lot of pressure
Better if it stays
In the Honeycomb
In the Honeycomb
In this sticky home
All alone
In the honeycomb
Where it lays

And you are
A beautiful vision
Through the amber glassy case
But I am turning ugly
drifting away
Inside this place
Afloat In this concoction
I am changing
As my nectar melts  away
And I’m feeling drunk and different
Theres a darkness that has stayed
Floating in the honey
My love just melts away
Suspended in the honey
There is a darkness that has stayed
But that’s all ok
It’s easier this way
And if the bees have a short winter
I may be spared from my demise
And I’ll be brewing into flavors
Of the aged and the wise
Behind the wax cap
Where I’m changing
Maybe then I’ll be deserving
Of the amber in your eyes…
