Yeah!
This is the way to find my harlequins face
To my junkie dead body covered in lace
The flesh still warm where skin had once been my lips
My smile just scattered fragments lining the ditch

You like to watch when I bleed (Like a coward)
I’ve got some right here for you (Like a coward)
I push you down on your knees (Such a good whore)
I make your dreams come true

At 60 miles an hour on course and pace in hybrid mental states
So my pathetic limp kiss has never caught this way
No catalyst begins across the face of those who end
Leaving its scar too deep for all of your attempts to mend

Come on
Cowards
Come on
You whores
I’ve got no choice but this if
I can’t get rid of it
You’ll never be any match for what I can do to myself

I’m still stuck here, breaking it backwards apart
Watching all the raindrops cover up before we can start (Like a coward)
Without a doubt that all will be washed away
There’s still no proof to see if I will someday

You like to watch when I bleed (Like a coward)
I’ve got some right here for you (Like a coward)
I push you down on your knees (Such a good whore)
I make your dreams come true

I’ve got no choice but this if
I can’t get rid of it
You’ll never be any match for what I can do to myself
To myself

Come on
Coward
Come on
You whore

    General CommentCowardice, in general terms, is the perceived failure to demonstrate sufficient robustness in the face of a challenging situation. The term describes a personality trait which is typically viewed as a negative characteristic and has been generally frowned upon (see norms) within most, if not all global cultures, while courage, typically viewed as its direct opposite, is generally rewarded and encouraged.
    Cowards are usually seen to have avoided or refused to engage in a confrontation or struggle which has been deemed good or righteous by the wider culture in which they live. On a more mundane level, the label may be applied to those who are regarded as too frightened or overwhelmed to defend their rights or those of others from aggressors in their lives.

    According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, the word "coward" comes from an Old French word coart (modern French couard), a combination of the word for "tail" and an agent noun suffix. It would therefore have meant "one with a tail" – perhaps one in the habit of turning it, or it may be derived from the dog's habit of putting its tail between its legs when it is afraid.It is possible that the English language was enriched in such manner through military contacts with the French, or with the French-speaking Normans that conquered England in 1066.[citation needed]
    The English surname Coward (as in Noel Coward), however, has the same origin and meaning as the word "cowherd".

    Acts of cowardice have long been punishable by military law, which defines a wide range of cowardly offenses including desertion in face of the enemy and surrendering to the enemy against orders. The punishment for such acts is typically severe, ranging from corporal punishment to the death sentence. Cowardly conduct is specifically mentioned within the United States Uniform Code of Military Justice.
