The holy waters of the blackened sea,
A gulf that separated you and me,
The shadows as they weep,
A dog will chase its tail,
The beauty of creation is alien,
The solitude is your relief.

The sunlight through the wall,
Slamming of the door,
Snake curled up in sleep,
The rustle of the trees,
You swore you would return,
The hell is the others,
And the heaven is the hell.

It's my own
It's my story,
All alone,
It's a defense mechanism,
Fight or flight.

Doesn't matter,
At least you're not asleep,
Your debts are paid in silver,
And the last coins in the deep,
You think you want a taste of madness?
I think you know, the taste of that wine.

A tower shining white,
The stone within the plum,
Don’t you know what they know?
The devil hates the sun.
The brewer of the liars,
Won’t need me for a while,
The killer wears a blue suit,
But I’m not wearing mine.

Fight or flight,
It's my own,
It's my story,
All alone,
It's a defense mechanism,
Fight or flight.

Watch them go by,
Tired, all these beggars,
Stage is soaked with sweat,
And waltzing dead men,
Whistling in alleys,
Carpool tomorrows,
Sealed and stamped with sorrow,
Wasted, wounded,
Now that I kissed her.
Canned chatter,
Burnout gold dust,
Bury the dagger,
Cain and Abel,
Thoreau,
Now that I kissed her.
