You want me to fight for you?
If that means fighting with myself, then I’ve risked my life for you
You wanna be forgiven,
but you don’t wanna know your crimes, just the bliss of innocence
I don’t know what you expect from me I’m not a damn thing like I was
Haven’t I hurt you enough to convince you, I’ve hurt you just because?
You wanna trust me, except when I tell you that you can’t
‘Cause I’m nothing lovely.
Beneath this skin, I wanna be like you
Want you to see yourself in me, and live in my nightmare
Smiles and beauty never fade in photographs
They hide in sheets while bodies try the same
Time becomes the fragrance of the frozen past
And haunts the hearts that live outside of frames
Would you mind if I break you, dethrone and disgrace you, in the name of Love?
You’re my scarlet forgiveness, my merciful mistress, unjaded and stung
Would you mind if I kill you, betray and reveal you, in the name of Love?
You’re my unholy scripture, enabler, and victim, of all that I’ve done
You wanna be enticing, to an endless appetite
Darling, It’s still lying.. if you lie to yourself
Let me ask you a question, let your “yes” be “yes” and your silence the same
Is your back to the darkness, the same way your god’s is, in heavenly shame?
Do you pray to disarm the mirror, and pose like the picture, of all that you claim?
If you’re as sick as your secrets, are you barely breathing, and cold in your veins?
You want me to fight for you? Who’s your worst enemy?
