lyrics

When you were a kid's kind of sad
cuz no one cared and no one came
you saw a snake on the roadside
shedding it's skin
and you prayed that you could do the same.

When a big fat hand trapped
and held inside your tiny cries
your mouth fell open
Filled with soap and water -logged
Little white lies.
But how could you have known then
the truth would only tarnish you for life?
How could you have know then
the truth would only dirty you for life?

When you heard the words betray
that love's nothing more than a cum stain
the moon soothed you more
than cold mothers do.
She could never accuse you
of seeking a safer embrace to crawl into.
She would never accuse you
of seeking a safer grave to crawl into.

When the burning begins again
and you gravitate around rage
as if you do not exist
beyond this spinster witch's red flame.
The doomed bastard stake
will tie you to the exiled devil child's name.
The one who did the rape
will smile as he set alights the blame.

When you recognize the mark that death made
how futile is grasping the Lazarus contrast
it's too late.
The feathers have already fallen away.
The feathers have already fallen away.

When that last second comes calling
a barn owl, your only witness will say,
"I was all you wished for
but I was here every single day
placing every obstacle upon your false hope's way
standing every obstacle along your false path's way."

When you get the joke
and the riddle has withered and grayed
it won't be for a lack of understanding
every ounce of your beloved suffering
was all just in vain.
Every ounce of your beloved suffering
was all just in vain.

When will you evolve into something more
than just a patchwork of your pain?
