As we spin around the mattress
as the guilty war start time again
as I mumble my resistance
I hesitate
and then I take you in

Your sent is too familliar
your fingers nullify my skin
am I still your creepy sister?
when you wash me away?
and away we come again

He leads me down to the basement
He waits til' no one can hear
He leaves me dirty and wasted

I am faithless
I am shameless
I am faithless

I don't expect to be forgiven
I don't expect these scars to dissapear
I came to life as you predicted
so you where right,
I'm your souvenir

can I return your little secret?
can I remember to forget I'm here?
cut out my tounge and let you keep it?
would it turn you on?
or would it make you ill?

He leaves me broken and breathless
He leaves me his cigarette
He leaves me shattered and shaking

I am faithless
I am nameless
I am

twisted, I'm so twisted
is that human?
given, I'm so given
I am low(?)

He leaves me

I am faithless
I am faceless
I am

I am shameless
I am nameless
I am faithless

    General CommentNO ONE likes Marry me Jane?! Anyway...

    I got the feeling that this is about incest, between a brother and sister. Not just the "am I still your creepy sister" which obviously implied it to me, but also the girl "mumbling her resistance", his "scent too familiar", things implying this person is related to her or very closely associated with her.

    Even if not about incest, this is obviously about a young girl having sex with someone who coerces her to do so, and she regrets it, feeling "faceless, nameless, shameless"... etc. Although later she feels guilty and tortured by her knowledge of what she's done... she bears emotional scars.
