I am a child
Who needs
Its mother's milk
A desperation
Of a certain kind
A desire that
Burns me
In a place
That I refuse to say

A pneumatic imposition
Waves with every breath
Toward those who dare
To embrace its presence
A taunting of sorts
Who twists itself
Into a rather
Suggestive hello

A river of feeling
Feeling loathing
Feeling shame
Feeling overwhelming sin
Washing away
All that dared
To label you
As innocent
But who wants
Any of that anyways

I want release
I want to
See you cry
Tear of regret
That you lived
Anywhere but
This moment

Faith means nothing
When we can have
Heaven on Earth
Because its true that
Every time an angel moans
A devil gets its wings

    Song MeaningThe song outlines the pining of a woman who desperately desires a man she cannot have. Due to unexplained circumstances, she has shied away from revealing her feelings for so long that she has lost him or his interest (he is involved with another woman, he got married, moved far away, etc.). She is so crushed by this that she feels only his embrace could console her.

    This is where the song comes in, right in the middle of a fantasy that her man has come home to give her the love she has wanted for so long.
