LAY DOWN them arms

no 'mount gonna do you good

sweet lemon-pie motherfucker

Damn, you shoulda left it all behind

you know, it's right about now

when the sweat comes down

you should walk away, baby

and LAY DOWN them arms

 

I can sense it on you

Darlin', my skin is burning

LAY DOWN them arms

Juices flowin, waves are nearer now

music thumpin', burst my chest

oh FUCK, is that my heart?

But no, the beat don't stop tonight

so LAY DOWN them arms

 

Set fire to my soul

You better burn the fuckin' house

Sure, baby, but I can still hear the music

It's like fuckin' churches with bells

LAY DOWN them arms

Just about getting too late

Know, sugar, tables turned just now

DON'T LAY DOWN THEM ARMS
