The salt from my eye burns
As does the acid of my tongue.

Might a tempest relieve me of sound and sight.
Might I unearth the hatched
And put it to proper use

My hand is poised, and in fury.

Only thunder gives me rest.

Dare me to breathe
When I can't catch my breath.
Sway my temper's balance.

Only thunder gives me rest.

    General Commentit's all about being at the edge of lashing out, and praying that the target of your wrath pushes you that extra inch past your tolerance. "sway my tempers balance" also a great freakin song to simply blast when you're having a bad day.
