Carcinogen Crush

Speechless. Read the words between your lines, in isolation. Silence separates of what design? I heard you speak words I know you didn’t write. But I believe you, believe them, ’cause you spoke them again in my dreams last night. I swear to you I’m not the one. I swear so I’ll become your only delight. Take a bow; you’ve performed exquisitely. Though the millions scream, I know you’ll see each subtlety’s understood by me. I would be as devout as the high school sweetheart that I never had, I swear.

I swear to you I’m not the one. I swear so I’ll become your only delight. So if you are confined to me, I swear that you will be so lonely (dreaming). Your airs of grace, your airs of grace will fill me. Your airs of grace, your airs of grace will fill me. Your airs of grace, your airs of grace will fill me. Your airs of grace, your airs of grace just kill me. I swear to you I’m not the one. I swear so I’ll become your only. So if you are confined to me, I swear you will be so lonely, dream-like. Dream-like. Dream-like. Oh.

Ether

Wear your tears tonight my dear. I’d say they truly suit you, unimpressed and moistly dressed. I may decide to keep you. I open my mouth and drink down the sea. You’d drown in me if savior sleep would cease to evade. I’d dream it all away. I’m caught in the fall when I’m awake. I’d cede my soul to take. I’m no one at all, and nothing’s changed at all. I open my eyes to lovers in flames. Praying sleep will provide us a cool escape.

I’d dream it all away. I’m caught in the fall when I’m awake. I’d cede my soul to take. I’m no one at all and nothing’s changed at all. I close my eyes. I close my eyes I close my…

Dream of Waking

I feel it washing over me, the slow poisonous tide. Pins and needles dance on me. Sickness undefined. Now I’m afraid to face the sky. Please someone hear my haunted cries. Please let them waken me. With eyes sewn shut I still can see (I end up somewhere) All that is surrounding me (Somewhere between) Between a dream (I end up nowhere) And motionless reality, will I forever lie?

I feel them binding so smoothly. I see myself below. I feel it gnawing, eating me. Poisonous and slow. My mind it speeds. My voice has died. God let me make the faintest cry. Please let them waken me… With eyes sewn shut I still can see (I end up somewhere) All that is surrounding me (Somewhere between) Between a dream (I end up nowhere) And motionless reality, will I forever lie? Binded by my hands, bind my legs, bind my eyes, bind my mouth, bind everything.

Opened up and for the taking. Just one touch and I’ll be yours. Opened up wide for the breaking. Just one touch and I’ll be yours. What’s on the other side behind the mirror? To try (I cry) to break the static keeping me here in between.

A Winter’s Tale 

A chilling silence. A world of violets. My breath materialized again. Immaculate. Inanimate. A comfort cutting time I see a string of white lights. Forever walking through December. Forever longing for a sign of life, a bringer of light. Forever wandering together through a world of violets. Ice everlasting. A full moon casting a purple veil enshrouding all. I perambulate, somnambulant. A solace piercing time I see a string of white lights. If only one for night, if only for one night, if only for one night remember. If only for one night, if only for one night, if only for one night together.

Fallen Like The Sky

Flee today with me and we can hide until they want you. Where the strange creatures play mystic games of strength. Disassociate. Seal my fate, seal my, seal your. Until they eat their own young. This is a lonely war tonight and I’m forsaken. Are you a lonely one, too? This is a lonely war tonight, with soldiers breaking. They were the lonely once too.

Leave your stain and laugh. My wounds innate. Leave like they all do. We the strange creatures play endless games of hate, we the reprobate seal our fate, seal our, seal your. Till we eat our own young. This is a lonely war tonight and I’m forsaken. Are you a lonely one, too? This is a lonely war tonight, with soldiers breaking. They were the lonely once, too. This is a lonely war tonight and I’m forsaken. Are you a lonely one, too?

Rabbits Are Roadkill on Route 37

What once did exist, now is meaningless. And doesn’t it seem funny, how soon you did forget all the words have now lost their weight. But I remember, I remember. Desperation, devastation. All I truly know is isolation, self damnation. All light that I’d owned, unshared and worthless now. What I knew was wrong. One who lived is gone. Guess it was just an echo when you would sing my song. All the notes you’d forgotten now, you left abandoned, I remember. Desperation, devastation. All I truly know is isolation, self damnation. All light that I’d owned, unshared and worthless now.

I can hate myself more than anyone. Will you join me? I know you know this tortures me. Have I created the suffering? Solely. Or do you happily cut further in to sever what’s left inside that binds me. Now all I feel is desperation, devastation. All I truly know is isolation, self damnation. All light that I’d owned, unshared and worthless now.

Synesthesia

Heartbreak, incarnate, I’m nothing if not your memories. Your heartbreak, please let me be enjoying your pain. Someday, I will be, I’ll be the common voice for community. Because I may well forever be the loneliness you feel. Where all remaining failed. Please let me haunt as scent on your pillow, letters of past so distant and wrinkled. Please let me haunt as scent on your pillow, letters of past so distant and wrinkled. Just say, say you will follow me, follow me. Invite me to your memory. Just sing, sing again for me that long forgotten song.

Heartbreak, incarnate, I’m nothing if not your memories. Heartbreak, please let me be enjoying your pain. Someday, I will be, I’ll be that what you want from a failing dream. Because I may, I may at best feel as low as you feel. Please let me haunt as scent on your pillow, letters of past so distant and wrinkled. Please let me haunt as scent on your pillow, letters of past so distant and wrinkled. Just say, say you will follow me, follow me. Invite me to your memory. Just sing, sing again for me that long forgotten song.

Let me be all the words. Let me be all the words. Let me be all the words. Let me be all the words. Let me feel the words echo in comfort. Let me be all the words that you’d unsay. Let me feel the words echo in comfort, comfort, comfort, comfort. Let me be all the words that you’d unsay, unsay, unsay, unsay. Let me be all the words echoing comfort. Let me be all the words that you’d unsay. Let me be all the words echoing comfort, comfort, comfort. Let me be all the words that you’d unsay, unsay, unsay, unsay.

On The Arrow

He said, “Who truly belongs here?” “Not I,” she said. “I’ll lie here with you.” He knows no one shines forever, they change with the weather. He said, “I’ve now stayed too long here.” “Goodbye,” she said. “I’ll wait here for you.” He knows the winds carry sorrow, as they leave she’ll follow. They leave tomorrow. Fragments of joy torn apart. A freshly drained heart that beats, disguise themselves through him. He’ll say that it’s nothing new, and swear this is true. For you, I’ll swallow the ocean. I’ll swallow the ocean.

He said, “Who truly belongs here,” “Not I,” she said. “I’ll lie here, to you. I know this sorrow is sacred and I’ll never break you. I’ll softly save you.” Fragments of joy torn apart. A freshly drained heart that beats, disguise themselves through him. He’ll say that it’s nothing new, and swear this is true. For you, I’ll swallow the ocean. I’ll swallow the ocean.

Lower It

An invitation, excluding no one, so you walk right in and destroy the fucking place? You’ve lost your right to be part of my family, the family that welcomed you. You joined and left in disgrace. Your flag was flaming. Your flag was flaming before it ever started flying. Your flag was burning, burning down everyone in true salute. Sense of commitment. A sense of pride. I heard you say that we shared a destiny. Now it’s plain to see you’ve got no sense at all. The name that once honored, you disgraced and made a mockery.

Your flag was flaming. Your flag was flaming before it ever started flying. Your flag was burning, burning down everyone in true salute. I could always see the smoke from miles away. I could always see the weakness in your eyes. Far away I feel the lies while the sky is burning. You will always be unwanted. Your flag was flaming. Your flag was flaming before it ever started flying. Your flag was burning, burning down everyone in true salute. You will always be unwanted, unwanted. You will always be unwanted, unwanted, unwanted.

Transference

No room for doubt, accusations one to ten. You’ve got my number boy, you’ve got my number boy. No wasting time now, you’ve got me dialed, I’m one hundred eleven less than perfection. Pride has faltered now you’re left crawling (keep your disease) sealed lips will not cease the calling (your disease), Pride has faltered now you’re left crawling (no shame) sealed lips will not cease the calling.

Pathetic eyes complimenting what’s inside. I’ve got your number boy, I’ve got your number boy. So appalled as I watch you purge. Now see if your fiction reads salvation. Pride has faltered now you’re left crawling (keep your disease) sealed lips will not cease the calling (your disease), Pride has faltered now you’re left crawling (no shame) sealed lips will not cease the calling.

No room for doubt. No pity is deserved. You’ve got my number boy, you’ve got my number boy. Coincidence you’ve assessed correct, I’m one hundred eleven less than perfection. Pride has faltered now you’re left crawling (keep your disease) sealed lips will not cease the calling (your disease), Pride has faltered now you’re left crawling (no shame) sealed lips will not cease the calling.

Who Knew?

Every single notion burned indelibly. Every motion leaving scars behind. All sincere emotion received skeptically with no preparation for life eternal. Every tear that’s fallen brings one thousand floods. Paper cuts are leaving blood behind. All the silent laughter ringing piercingly. I blink making my eyes mine. Words in their worthlessness, they should be weighted down, but do I truly wish their cessation?

The Chicken Song

Chicken’s good for the body, chicken’s good for the mind, chicken’s good for the funny bone, chicken’s easy on the eye. Here we go, now! Yum yum chicken bone, bock bock chicken.

Hearts Frozen Solid, Thawed Once More By The Spring of Rage, Despair, and Hopelessnes

Whoa! I will die screaming! Whoa! Scream my last breath in useless anguish. Tear the sun from the sky. Whoa! I will die screaming. Whoa! Die screaming!
