Track Name: Pleasure Part
Tell me what you want
tell me how you want it to be
I’ve got all the time
And the fire of a reveling teen

There is nothing worse
Bursting at the seams
It’s all underlined
I can see the scene
It’s all on my mind
Pleasure Part

Distressed in a desire
An unforgiving want just to see
Skin is turning dry
A wind that turns a fantasy

There is no more search
I know what I need
Where I want my eyes
Brimming with a seethe
And a sinister mind
