Among all of God's creatures
It is only men who kill
With a venom strong enough
To melt the fool upon the hill
Who is eager just to watch
And offer infinite advice
As he slips into the liquid
Of his own
Self-sacrifice

Among all of God's creatures
It is only men who seize
Upon friendship and devotion
As if they were the disease
To be cured and violated
White-washed and despised
Never wondering why the heart
Is growing black
And over-sized

Among all of God's creatures
It is only men who lie
With the energy of a lover
Who'll sing nothing to the sky
Spreading rivers of regret
As dark and cold as outer space
And as infinite in madness
As the beauty
Of the chase

Among all of God's creatures
It is only men who trust
In the Devil and his robbing
To deliver what is just
From the hand of he who suffers
To the handshake of the thief
As the ashes of indifference
Insinuate our sleep

Among all of God's creatures
It is only men who cry
And one day when I'm ancient
I will look at you and sigh
As I sink into the places
Where I'll wish I could have been
As I slip beneath the surface
Of your soft
And wrinkled skin
