An artist, I am, a creator Of wonder and marvel form. I take the blank canvas without objection See it's beauty before its conception Then carve away the imperfections And now I'm left with My gem. Something the world can't condemn.
Oh I sprinkle just a bit of honey in her eyes. Colors of the wind I do apply And she'll shine like a cloudless sky. What else, what else could I try? Maybe love? No not love. Submission.
Lovely puppet... Captivating… Mesmerizing... Smiling… Leave me breathless Stay for always. Ever flawless. Oh how I make you dance Twirling here and there. Make me forget all my cares.
Lovely puppet Don't be silly… Your whole world is With me. Let's keep dancing Like we're weightless. Lovely puppet. Looking out the window, oh, Staring at the clouds. You can't leave, even if you leave You'd get tarnished And no longer astonish Nor would you harness My art, my precious art.
Lovely puppet I command you Stop these questions No more thinking No more gazing Don't play with those strings, love. Be the wonder as I made you. Lovely puppet.
Break your own bones to look the part Your words are poison to your own soul Lies are tied loose at the end So you can untangle them all over again Manipulate those with strings Put ones on those who disobey the queen A sly little devil sat with a crown A makeshift castle made with a frown Throne made of eggshells painted in gold The stench of her pride plague the halls Oh how daring you are, a threat with no promise Your sword and men may break on moments notice Deny you may of the weight of your weakness We see the cracks, the glass breaking beneath it So for now I bow to the ruler of all Who'll fall on her own sword with no one to call
Knock on my skull you'll hear no reply cause I've been empty my whole life and that hasn't changed I'm just a living corpse and I can't hear you anyway so wave my lifeless hands make me seem more alive force my lips into a smile make me nod my head will you ever be satisfied? with the corpse half-alive? it's a miracle they say the corpse now alive "look at her!" "she even smiles!" but go right ahead knock on my skull but you will hear no answer
What a time it is to be a corpse pretending to live
