Perseus holds the head of Medusa
oh what i would give to be her
my hands cannot hold steady
when you reach out to me
navy boy oh if you could tell
would you ever be taken as i am
that i looked to you every night
you did not seem to notice
god had made your sweetheart wrong
born to suffer, born only to die

a dog will rut its way into harm
when one lets off the leash
to reveal what i once was
just for once, just for once
in this she is not unique
to have lied to a lover
if for want of a pure touch
to be common, to be seen as i am

salute your rage, a hammer
beat upon me, crumble me as powder
wipe me off of your uniform
it's the same blood that you loved
i don't think that you are a fool
but you cannot deny me as a woman
oh ensign, i was your woman

    General CommentThe narrator is enslaved by love (this is the leash that ties them to the person). The person is depressed and angry and for that the person loves and cares for them that much more.
