i need your love

i need your love,
cut me up above,
my wings need rest
and i'll take your chest.

i need your fire,
my undisclosed desire,
kill me in the morning
before the sun gives me warning.

i need your lovin'
like fuel to my movin',
in your best sunday dress
who're you trying to impress?

i need your life,
like butter to my knife,
you get me meltin' in your heat
and i laying at your feet.

give me love and lies

there is heaven in the lies
we speak in the name of love,
and then, when everything dies,
the lies rise up above.

those lies turn into truth
as though they've always been,
for there is no old nor youth
that can tell you what they've seen.

take my wisdom, oh lord!
let me live in blinded bliss,
for those lies I have adored
and them liars I deeply miss.

the venomous truth speak not,
keep it out of my tainted heart,
for those lies are all I've got
and I'll keep 'em from truth apart.

the story of a little girl

hey there, little girl
you've been wandering all alone
in this magical forest
where you come to hide.
dreams are meant to be dreams
and nightmares are meant to make you cry.
you long to be alone
so you've come here to die.

there's no magical rabbit
that'll take you home,
there's no way to tell
when you're already gone.

hey there, little alice
why don't you tell your tale?
your mamma tried to beat you
and your dadda tried to rape you,
while your sister sat quietly
reminiscing of days gone by
like a broken old doll
with emptiness in her eye.

there's no magical rabbit
that'll take you home,
there's no way to tell
when you're already gone.

the return

then one day, by the break of dawn,
i am returned, not full but broken,
without memory of ever being gone,
carrying in my hand your token.

it's a gift, a painful reminder
that my absence passed unnoticed,
for i am the lousiest survivor
to ever leave your dreams enticed.

alas, i bring back not regret,
but adventurous stories of awe
that i must tell — soon i'll forget
those wonderful things i saw.

since i came, i've been alone
as alone now as i was before,
never has unexplainably grown
ever a love inside my core.

i treasure you, i bring you back
in rooted memories i cannot tear,
nor your friend — a beast named jack
shan't unsettle our unlove affair.

before the end, i'll love again
as deep as the abyss i've been,
because i'll allow no other men
to ever touch your perfect skin.
