Restriction in black pressed against my forehead
a thousand tiny plates drifting out to sea
carry all my thoughts away, empty me
taunt the growing circle, plunge the knife
smile your blackest smile, go and laugh at me

Demons on your shoulders they laugh at me
at the one who falls so quickly, who’s hurt so easily
well you see i never thought this was fun
you bitch yes you hurt me, now you say you’re done
dive for the floor get lost in the shadows
love, hate, vengeance i said it wouldn’t break me
as i felt everything drift away
crash on my chest and watch the sawdust scatter
little broken bag of bones you tossed away

The view from this vantage grew quite dark
as the plastic filled my brain, as my thoughts shut off
draw me out to scatter my pieces
carelessly dropping everything over
the edge of my world where the walls slid in
the light withdrew, i’m left stranded here
you brought me a candle, I held it to your face
trying to burn you, trying to learn
your face ashen black as you stripped your clothes
knowing you owned me, knowing control


from Mesmerized by the sirens, released October 12, 1988
