Your eyes no longer see
The things you used to believe in
Your songs no longer seem
To have meaning
You sit facing the wall
I watched it all happen
You sing facing the wall

The velvet tongued man
Wove you into his design
He pulled on your threads
And he seemed so benign
A permanent smile
Not one word is unkind
But he’s carefully severed
Your heart from your mind

The velvet tongued man
Knows exactly how to use
In polite English turns
How could you refuse?
The dance had begun
I could not accuse
So I watched as you willingly
Broke in two
