Somewhere, through the frozen fields
Somewhere, beneath your pale and tender skin
Lies a house, absorbing fear and pain
Solar, red, contained
Feeding on my dreams
Somewhere cold, inside the optic wire
Down where fingers and semen crack and bleed
There I will be, with my arms spread out and broken
Waiting for your breath, to animate my veins
We're not alone: all our thoughts are numbered
Malignant and cold
Animal and hungry
But I will contain all
That ever was or will be
Then I'll watch my skin erupt
In a symphony of flames
Screaming out your name
Screaming out your name...
Why can't I hide inside your malleable
Electric face? you'd suck away the pain
And swallow down my sickest dreams
Now my body feels like snow
Spilling out the shattered screen
Where will we be then
When all the fear and blood are gone
Drained into one hundred million open children's mouths
Screaming out your name
Screaming out your name...

    General CommentDreams, subconscious needs, fears. The animus is the male element in a female psyche.

    General CommentIt's basically his need for her, or their need for each other, put into words. Their strong love for each other. I love it!
