Monsoon in my Blood

Photo from the Philippines, Tim Calla

It [my blood] flows like a lagoon

Promise me you’ll drown in it

I’ll meet you underneath it

Till red meets red crimson red

Vomit Blood, Vomit Blood

Cry for me, let me see your ruby tears

Let the lagoon and monsoon spill from my eyes

Monsoon in my blood.
