Lost at sea is when I heard you singing Among many shattered rocks she laid if as a sleeping fox. Putting me into her terrible trance with that graceful glance. So distracted you lead me to my own doom. Eventually we all get tricked by a siren or two.
I blame it all on my lack of interest about everyone around me, that I only noticed you when the alarm's about to ring. Was I blinded or was it really just hard to see your eyes that smile and the way you sing? Oh, yeah, it's hard to recognize a pair of crescents staring at another's presence. And it's hard to keep a voice inside my heart because that is all I'll ever hear. Almost. But not quite. I almost tricked myself into liking you. Almost but not quite, because you had someone else.
You say you want us to still be friends But it doesn't seem like you mean it After getting over the pain I decided I'd believe it But perhaps you only said that to spare my feelings Looking at you I know I should have seen it Watch, you'll start acting like you like me again And then we'll both repeat it
I keep falling for his stupid game over and over again.
Her pleas were a song Continuous, poignant and long For who would hear her inaudible pleas? Chained up in a tower, pleading for keys
The tune was a lullaby No matter how much anyone was to try The songbird was imprisoned by the immortal agony and revel She’d made a deal with the devil
Not knowing of his penalties and tricks She knew what’s done is done and blunders are difficult to fix Though even to the most oblivious it was clear That she was to waste the rest of her immortal life in fear
And so, as she seemed to her subjects as mighty and great Her own verdicts, her foolishness and actions were like a hefty weight She wore them under her own skin Incapable to bear her own sin
Her reflection was something she could not see For all she sought to do was to get rid of its provoking face and flee Her soul had been sold For everything around it, was damp and cold
The devil is not someone rational they told her Alas she did not heed, therefore misfortune she did stir The contract was inscribed in blood And now she was a fearful flood
No one heard her soundless cries And saw her endless tries No one heard her hushed pleas And saw her heart freeze
But her soul had been imprisoned in everlasting misery And all she had was an aftertaste that felt bitterly The bitterness of life Had cut into her humanity with a knife
All she ever aspired was to find meaning Not turn out to be demeaning Or be the motive people sealed their doors at night
And why men carried guns with fright
She may have been the fiend of the town With a malicious crown But all she craved to be was an angel with wings Though all she did was dangle from the devil’s strings
The best lies are those webbed through truth Spun with mockery and delight They climb slowly up your mind Unrecognized And when the truth is insight You are already wrapped in silk Staring at fright and Death's bite
