  1. Let me be your stranger
    Let me walk through your garden door
    Let me play in the leaves
    Under your sacred trees
    Take that part of me

    Now pull your body open
    Tear me apart slowly limb by limb
    Pull the skin to your eyes
    And watch it come alive
    Till it screams and dies

    A naked body folded
    Her passion by design
    Eden's heart ripped open
    His lovers eyes don't know but say why

    Let me down in your flower
    Cover my mouth with roses and thorns
    Let me bleed over you and make my wish come true
    While the world turns blue

    She wants to take him over
    Oh how he dies for her
    But the garden's turned to ashes
    He's such a whore for her but she wants more

  2. Judging from constant nostalgia in the comments, there is no Merchandise at all. Now I haven't heard of them until only recently and judging from this song, it shows promise. The voice is the main ingredient here – sounds very weird and somehow defies it's own harmony – now, hopefully the singer doesn't rely on it in the same fashion throughout the entire album which may get tiresome if that's the case. As for the music – that part may sound a bit more obvious according to your enthusiastic comparisons, people – the "4AD" sound thing and all, but try and give it a chance as "Merchandise" itself, without all the enthusiastic make-believe it's "The Smiths" or "Cocteau Twins", to name a few, that you're hearing – because you're not.
