How easily forgotten
how easily replaced
your loved ones become…
We are the wreckage strewn behind you
love’s own casualties
from the battle that you won

You could not wait
to fly your flag
you could not wait
to raise you man in victory

I know you hate
to be mistaken
for the woman
of just an ordinary man…
To be the lover
of an ordinary man

I’m down on my knees
I’m crawling across the floor to you
I’m holding out my hand
God I do not understand
why I’m down on my knees

Now I’m troubled by your silence
I’m troubled that you no longer dare
to lay with me under the night stars
or walk unhindered on your own two legs
you could not wait
to lose your new freedom
you could not wait
to carry your new chains
I know you hate
to keep him waiting
so you’d better
drag yourself back to him again

I wanna feel alive
I wanna feel awake
to make these night stars go away
I wanna feel alive
I wanna feel awake
I wanna feel anything and
everything
this world will let me taste

I wanna see you cry
I wanna see you break
I wanna see you crash into the walls
of your own infamy
