A stranger to you but
I've known you forever you're my flesh and blood
You gave me this life and made me hate you for it
The distance in years but time is a cloud and a whisper
The anger gives way to a sickness
for a home that I've never known
Face down 'til you make me forget how to breathe
Tongue tied so I bind you unwilling to me
Fear not the voice of the serpent inside
We'll stand still and pray
for the storm to subside and leave us soon
The fear of the dark no warmth in the arms of a monster
A chemical contacts' course of incision
Your fragile refrain the seconds they chisel our lives away
like a sick circadian conundrum.
Will you leave me alone again
knee deep in hopeless despair?
Will you waste your days in hiding
haunted by memories of me?
Finally your one shot and love but you blew it.
Darling you failed failure
And pain is all you have left
