Where do you draw the line when you fall in love with someone who is willing to give everything physically, but nothing emotionally?

In light of today's political climate, I want to stress one particular phrase in the lyric: "explicitly consensual." 😳

lyrics

How can you lie there sound asleep
So vulnerable atop the sheets
Indifferent to your nakedness
Wide open yet mysterious
Immaculately conquerable
Explicitly consensual
I could touch you anywhere
And you wouldn’t wake up

(Rejoice)
Your body is mine for the taking
But something inside me is breaking
You’re completely untouchable
Who are you?

My finger strokes your abdomen
Our bodies scream for oxygen
The air is thin in paradise
Are you prepared to pay the price?
You gasp and giggle in your sleep
I offer up my soul to keep
The spirits smile on us tonight
My flawless plaything

I worship you
I pray at your altar
Who do you cling to
In the comfort of your mind?
Choke down my pride
I’m better than this
But I can’t deny myself.
