I Bleed*

All I ask
is that you
let me spend forever
feeling this way.

Every time they cut you, I bleed.




Carrion*

It weeps for you late at night,
when sleep does not come easily.
It weeps for the one you miss.

It weeps for the dreams on the tips of your finger.
It weeps for the tears on your pillow.
It weeps for the silence.
It weeps for the noise.
But when it weeps it got
no face,
no bodies,
no languages.

It weeps for you so hard, so much and so often.
But you don’t seem to notice a bit,
转身就走。

'cus you’re just carrion, carrion, carrion...

It weeps for betrayal, intended or not.
It weeps for the colors, faded.
It weeps for the sunrise, by moonlight you linger.
It weeps for the last time you touched.
It weeps for you so hard, so much and so often
But you don’t seem to notice a bit,
转身就走。

'cus you’re just carrion, carrion, carrion...




Absolution

In case you didn't know,
I've decided to let you go.
You just left for a smoke.
Oh lights can be so lyrical.

In case you didn't know,
I've decided to let you go,
Leave all the corpses behind.
I'll burn them with butter and time.

They think they get it but they don't (12 million idiots)
They think they get it but they don't (with sad ugly faces)
They think they get it but they don't (700 fucktards)
They think they get it but they dont (sleep under the races)

In case you didn't know,
I've decided to let you go.
You prefer it without ice.
I prefer there's no light.

In the dark
I'm racing...




Memories of Summer Sunburns*

He gave me that night back and this time,
I told you the truth.
We talked and held each other till the sun came up.
And as I went to hell, the devil asked me if it was worth it.
I said yes.
I said yes.

I’ll see you at your funeral,
if you’ll see me at mine.
I’ll wait at the edges for your ghost to rise.
We’ll find someplace nice to haunt,
an abandoned beach house
filled with memories of summer sunburns.
