lyrics

if it hadn't been for my dietitian
never would have met her
my deficiencies had sent me snooping
at the "Spirit Vitamin Shop"

she had those green mint leaf tattoos
and a scarf of some kind of faux fur
I lost my will to live without her
the second she offered a drop

as I sipped she brushed her bangs aside
and revealed that feline green line
one taste of her scent
and I couldn't stop

now I can't see through darkness
like I used to
with the girl with the cat's eye

now I can't see the colors
now my tongue is dry
without the girl with the cat's eye

I still yearn for the good old days
cross-legged inside her tent
the one with the holes punched in shapes
of stars

we touched tips to knuckles and
sang eerie chants under lights
sparse and spotty and hot
the hexes she taught me
tossed hot stones in my heart

the panels in her eyes
reflected her mischief
of a sinister salivary gland
our bones bending like bars

now I can't see through darkness
like I used to
with the girl with the cat's eye

now I can't see the colors
now my tongue is dry
without the girl with the cat's eye

How did she replace her pupils
with the wicked pit slit of a cat
I don't know what it was about her
that made me fall for something like that
I can't see her again,
can't risk the hitch of witchcraft
I still hear her hissing
like she tasted my tears and laughed

now I can't see through darkness
like I used to
with the girl with the cat's eye

now I can't see the colors
now my tongue is dry
without the girl with the cat's eye
