When I awoke I lay tied to a foreign bed. Inside a house sown out of human flesh. A palace of skin graft architecture. Oh desolation! I can't stand to fuck these walls. Desolation! I can't stand to suck these halls. But how do I sleep when the skin I stroke underneath the sheets is mannequin plastique? And I wonder where the girl who slept beside me has gone. When the faces in the photos stare with glass eyed mystique� Tick, tick, tick, tock I watch the clock for tenderness.

    General Commenti think it's some one who he has sex with, but it's absent of all emotion, and he feels empty doing so, and so he can barely stand it.
    it's as if, although he is with someone, he is alone. "Oh desolation!"
