not to coin a phrase/but play it as it lays
make them think you’re safe in your restraints
not to tip my hand/but all these false demands
misdirect from what I really want
and how much I really want

I see a jar of pills and a bottle of bleach
I want all of one or a little of each
they give me a longer leash but I keep straining

I know they check the beds/when we’re fucked on meds
that’s why I keep your picture in my pants
but they don’t have a clue/what I intend to do
when we sneak out from the Easter dance
so I’ll tell you in advance

I want to lead you once more into the breach
pierce you like the flesh of a peach
they give me a longer leash but I keep straining

why be brave
when fear is all you have?
why be saved?
there’s nothing to forgive
why behave
as if the life you live
requires explaining?

I see a jar of pills and a bottle of bleach
a golden ocean just out of reach
they give me a longer leash but I keep straining
