(KISS ME!)
Kiss me with your bayonet.
(CURSE ME!)
Carve your name with blunt precision.
(KISS ME)
Greet me with this violence.
(CURSE ME!)
Taste my pores like an insect feeding.
(KISS ME!)
Scream, scream cried the debutante.
(CURSE ME!)
Dance, dance, said the evil paraquat.

Sing, sing you’re telling me.
Bleed, Bleed, said the paper to the pen.

Understand there’s no time.
Understand I could not care less.
Reattach these severed limbs, fasten velcro to loose appendages.
Burn these lips with your fingertips,
crush this heart with your megaton footsteps.

Die young. Leave a pretty corpse for me.
I wouldn’t hold my breath If I were you.
Shrapnel swirls like butterflies And leaves your broken body in my arms.

Kiss me with brass-knuckled fists
Hate me because I left you bleeding
Love me with your violence
Grab my throat like a mad man seething
See you the opera house
Wage this war with unparallelled carnage
Meet me the parking lot
Mangled parts can’t be salvaged

Save your breath, don’t say your prayers
Words won’t help where you’re going
Save your breath, don’t say your prayers this curse shall keep you wandering
Burn these lips with your fingertips
Crush this heart with your megaton footsteps

Save your breath, don’t say your prayers
Words won’t help where you’re going.
Save your breath, say your prayers
Words won’t help where you’re going
