about

In just under 3 minutes, this piece weaves through 8 distinct musical sections, featuring a virtuosic mixture of punk, rock, pop, electronica, orchestral, classical, complex 4-5 part vocal harmonies, and lyrics that nakedly showcase the suicidal obsession Skafish has for his love interest.

lyrics

You aren't turned on by me at all
You don't like the way that I look
Every night I will cast a spell, it is put on you
So you lose your will then you will be mine
Obsessions, obsessions, they are of you
Possession, possession, I want your heart
Together, together, we never part
So happy, so happy, just me and you

When I’m with you I just put myself down (down, down)
I act nervous, you must think that I’m a clown (clown)
You don't think that I am in pain when you're with your love
Sitting way too close then you go to bed
Obsessions, obsessions, they are of you

You infest my blood stream
You grow roots in my heart (in my heart)
You are the disease in me
that spreads and won’t stop (it won’t stop)

I might kill myself today
'Cause I want you
You don't want me
I want my way
I won't give in
This time I will not compromise my dream of having you

But should I wait just one more day
To be a pest
And ring your phone
To act like I
Just called to talk?
When I want every word and every breath to be a dream
I shake
When I see you I shake
For you it's nothing

Now I pray my life can come to an end (now)
Rest in peace
There's no rest when a soul is black when disease is there
There will be no peace there is no escape
Obsessions, obsessions, they are of you
Possession, possession, I want your heart
Together, together, we never part
So happy, so happy, just me and you

And now the time has come
To take a stand
I won't back down
I cannot live with nothing
I want everything
I want my way
I am stuck alive
My soul (soul), it cannot die
I've tried before
The body dies
The soul lives on
My soul is sick
It has disease
I watch it grow
It spreads and kills my heart
(no, no,)
And travels through my bloodstream
(no, no, no,)
Finding every part of me
(no, no, no)
