Pull her underwater.
Hold her 'til she sputters.
Don't let her go.
Watch the bubbles rise.
She smiles and you sigh,
"Don't let her go."

Through your hands, she's born again
and her guilt falls on your head.
But you don't mind at all,
because you know it's all
to keep her clean.

You love her, so you sank her.
Your arms are an anchor,
but she won't float or drown.
Her sins bring out the blue;
the black she left for you
to sort out as you hold her down.

Pull her underwater.
Hold her 'til she sputters.
Don't let her go.
Watch the bubbles rise.
She smiles and you sigh,
"Don't let her go."

Wrinkles on her fingertips
like webs on the years she's missed,
but she doesn't mind at all,
'cause you're the saint she called
to keep her clean.

You love her, so you sank her.
Your arms are an anchor,
but she won't float or drown.
Her sins bring out the blue;
the black she left for you
to sort out as you hold her down.

Pull her underwater.
Hold her 'til she sputters.
Don't let her go.
Watch the bubbles rise.
She smiles and you sigh,
"I'll keep you clean."
Cause I love feelin' dirty
And I love feelin' cheap
And I love it when you hurt me
So drive those staples deep

Nice, although very messed up topic. I wasn't totally pulled in when reading it. It did get an audible "cool" out of me, but I wasn't totally captivated by it, which something thats dark like this usually will do to me.

The only line I didn't really understand was

"Wrinkles on her fingertips
like webs on the years she's missed"

Does this mean you're talking about an older person? Or is that just from being submerged in the water so long? And "webs on the years she's missed" doesn't make much sense to me. Maybe I'm looking too hard for the meaning.

I don't think he's talking about an old person.

"Wrinkles on her fingertips
like webs on the years she's missed"

That's probably showing how she wasn't really present through all the years they've had together, not really making the most out of it? and it's relating to how you wrinkle if your under water too long.

but that was just my first interpretation of it. There's probably some otehr meaning.

I think these were repeated quite a bit.
Normally wouldn't be a problem, but they made up a large majority of this. Too large, in my opinion. Every time you started up with something new, it didn't last long at all until it gave way to this.
Other than that, though, I think this was gorgeous
