Your heart is like a honeycomb
And inside each compartment
Is a honey bee

I rest my head against your chest
And I can hear them buzzing as
They sing to me

Snug inside their waxy chambers
You don’t think about the danger

All the walls that separate them
Are as thin as tissue paper

Drunk on nectar every single bee
Believes that she’s
The only queen

Think of what will happen when
The sticky sweet surrounding them
Gives way between

Best consider this a warning
Smoke them out or they’ll start swarming

Filled with venom angry things
They will destroy themselves to sting you
