Open up my wounds and watch them heal again, slowly
Take down all the stars up in the sky tonight, and watch them die
I can taste the shapes while colors speak so softly
Can you hear them?
Can you feel the crushing weight of an eternity?
Don't talk about forever
When you know the end is just a kiss away...
Rainbow rainbow, black and grey
Can you feel it?! Ha!
Sparks upon my lips and an ocean beyond the clouds
A race of human-robots, so much better at loving than me
I'll rip and tear at the mechanics in my brain
Until I'm something real again
Until I have something that no one can take away from me.
It's feeling, it's emotion: a livewire without a name
It's sound in technicolor
A dream within a dream within a dream...
They're itty bitty speckles flowing through my veins
Can you not taste them?!
Please slice me up and say I'm not insane
I'm not deranged
It's just that pain is absolutely orgasmic these days
And I know I love you
But I just cannot recall your name.
Borderline personality, synesthesia, sado-masochist
I'm only reading what you told me to
From the little piece of paper that shares my name
Are we the same?
But you don't bleed when they cut into you like I do...
I'm withered now, my love for you's expired
And I remembered what your name was when I smiled
I got up out of bed today
Tripping over whatever lay in my way
I was surprised to see the stars
Lying dead, with a new set of scars
Running up and down my stark-white arms
And I knew that it was you who put them there
To show me that my blood was no longer speckled
And that you were feeling regretful
That you'd ever picked me up at the grochery store
