Lyrics[edit]

    smack dab flat on my back
    the solid ground beginnin' to crack
    I pulled her down and down and down
    I lost my breath, I thought I'd drown
    
    fistfuls of you, fistfuls of you
    you pulled me through with white knuckles
    fistfuls of you, fistfuls of you
    you pulled me through with white knuckles
    
    her leg, my hand, a smoldering brand
    sticking to her wet body like sand
    her place, distaste, we fell from grace
    red smears across our face
    
    fistfuls of you
    fistfuls of you
    fistfuls of you
    
    fistfuls of you, fistfuls of you
    you pulled me through with white knuckles
    fistfuls of you, fistfuls of you
    you pulled me through with white knuckles
    
    white knuckles
    white knuckles
    white knuckles
    white knuckles
