All I can think about is removing these bandages,

Just so you can watch my wounds

Infect themselves with hoping that I am worth the coping

And that I have something left to lose.

Seduce me one more time like I’m not on my knees;

I said and meant I’m feeling fine with this halo around my neck.

I liked this so much more before I buried mines around me in the floor.

An operation of my indignation; just try to forget everything because

This place has lost its meaning.

I wish I hadn’t lost this because I still feel it when I move;

The ghost of what I had gives me what I have coming.

This extraction is a myth; peace of mind is something it can’t give.

When it’s all you think about, it’s all a lie.

Still, I can’t take you for what you are;

To me you’re just another fading star in the sky that beckons to be wished upon.

I just want to take a step towards something;

Towards anything at all, and leave this bloody message on the ground.

It says something about working it out and making amends,

But I can’t give this up without a fight.
