Take me down to the river
break me down at the knees,
tear my heart wide open-feast
on glory begotten by thieves.
Taste all the sweeter
the more that you eat her-
the pit in my chest
all the same.
I’ll keep on hiding remember
I’m trying while you live beside
A zombie of triumph
the love undenied trust
a mirror of joy through the pain.
This girls a riot
a poison-on fire
a pariah whose forgotten her head.
Kill them with kindness?
Perform for your highness?
A queen whose forgotten her bed.
I’ll dine on my blood
forget that I sold up
my demons for pills and this smile.
I’ll stand before you
gapping heart implore you
this hole is just bleeding on your floor.
I’ll keep believing as long as your breathing rip me apart-I want more!
Look at me I’m screaming-someday you’ll need me!
I’m writhing inside on the shore,
inside my head I find a half dozen mines
a world too confine-
yes, yes, I’m fine.
Pretty true lies in time allies
a smile that whispers alright.
Pain washes back keeping it trapt the monsters beneath the waves. In time you’ll see feasting on seams
only keeps you so long in a seed. Changing of tides-someday I’ll die
paint another perfect melody.
