as our gazes collide, the unraveling begins first with the flame in my throat burning so fiercely my words come out fiery, blistering and desperate to scald the one who lit the match and walked away next comes the storm in my chest, a hurricane of doubts pressing up against my lungs, surging, screaming if we were in love, why weren’t we enough? why wasn’t i enough? i wasn’t enough but she is and then there’s the calm, a sweet, sickening ache in my bones as i picture us, the sensation of being held in your arms, safe and sound from every thought inside my head so when they ask how i feel about the boy who broke my heart, i tell them i hate you because how could i ever explain the terrible cataclysm i feel at the sight of you.
Two years ago I learned a lesson But it didn't make sense until today
Three little dogs out in the snow Roxy was short and round, but she was strong with red fur Bumble and Sparky were smaller still and just wanted to have fun And after a few minutes shrill barks filled the air Bumble called for help as his brother was being torn apart Roxy had him at his throat The snow was red with blood So I grabbed the beast And timid Sparky tried to run away Blood poured from his throat
Now as day turned into night Bumble and Sparky were safe inside Roxy was out in the cold She wasn't safe and had to go Bumble sat the whole night waiting for his brother And sparky lay wrapped in his mother's arms Trying to keep it together
There are two kinds of people in this world That I now know You either tear out the throats of the innocent Or keep your head down and try protect your own
Starved of care & love Head's underwater & I struggle to stay above Because I'm empty inside, so I cannot float The taste of metal on my tongue & Lead passes through my throat Waking up from up from those inner desires Life's a cruel mistress & she never tires
