Satin and Chrome
If all we feel is all that’s left
If there is no other way
Than the one we’ve found
Then heavens the only judge
Satin and Chrome
Diamonds and stone
Leather clad angel
Silk shod devil
As the night explodes into nothing
Leaving blood on the walls
Knives in our backs
Torn to the heart
Stripped to the bone
Satin and Chrome…….
Tongues are forked
Blades are crossed
Guns are cocked
Charges are set
Detonation is inevitable
Bodies in the fall out zone
Satin and Chrome……
Blood red sun and leaden skies
Hearts are burning
The anger and pressure on the rise
Only murder to even the score
Satin and Chrome
Clinging to the wreckage
Striking out for shore
A hurricane is blowing
Salt spray in our eyes
Satin and Chrome
Romeo lies bleeding
Juliet stands defiant
Black widow supreme
Go respin your web
Satin and Chrome…..
Gravestones stand crooked
Broken teeth against the sky
Weeds entangle the path
Poison ivy strangles our thoughts
Hatred is writhing
Passion is endangered
Love lies dying
Naked hearts are maimed
Satin and Chrome
Diamonds and stones
Leather clad angel
Tears apart our home
Terror stalks the bedroom
Horror shares our bed
A devil in the kitchen
An angel all alone
Crosses in the bedroom
Whips against the wall
Bound and gagged
Bleeding all alone…….
Satin and Chrome……
Windows are painted black
Gouging out prying eyes
Private grief for a battle fought in public
Needles flash in the bathroom
Sweet mercy flies again
Mainline running all the way
Tracing tracks and finding trails
Pleading voices beckon
Sirens call into the night
Furies dance around
Pulling at our hair
Satin and Chrome…..
Undress before the mirror
Tear apart those rags
Throw them on the floor
Catching moonlight on your skin
Moonlight on ivory
Nighttime in your eyes
Let fall your hair
Gold burning in the dark
Satin and Chrome…..
Leather clad angel
Unfold your wings
Send down your mercy
So cold to the touch
Silk shod devil
Ride across my dreams
Mounted on a nightmare
Howling through my mind
Nail my heart to your sleeve
Beating still
Pumping out all that I am
Memories love hatred and greed
Collect a vase
Empty out all that we are
Leave no trace behind
Only stains on the carpet
And crumpled sheets
Run fingers through your blonde hair
Snagging all the knots
Pulling all the tangles
Cold steel against the skin
Angels in the graveyard
Devils in our hearts
Daemons in our sleep
Horror while we wake
Satin and Chrome…….
I can’t blame you for running away
You can dig a tunnel
You can climb the wall
You can sneak past the guards
Watch out for the mines
And the car is booby trapped
The trains aren’t running
And there’s no turning back
The phosphor glow burns down
Darkness falls as if a shroud
Cut glass screams
Shattered dreams into the night
Show no compassion for a stranger
Show no mercy for a saint
Show no justice for the wronged
Show no passion for your lover
Satin and Chrome
Diamond and stone
Leather clad angel
Silk shod devil
Armour plate your soul
Reinforce your mind
Rebuild your defenses
Hurry there isn’t much time
Baby come closer
As a butterfly unfold your wings
Sweet nectar for plenty
A heady potion for passion flowers
Satin and Chrome
Diamonds and Stones
Leather clad angel
Tears apart our home
The web you spin of intricate beauty
Hold me inside wrapped up in your cocoon
Metamorphosis supreme
Exquisite enchantment in lattice and silk
Enchantment weaves a heady spell
Fresh dawn rain on a summer’s morn
Fresh green grass wet with dew
Cold winters evenings spent warm with you
Weaving through the tangles
That encloses my heart
Thorns that pull and tear apart my mind
Cut a path through the thorns
Take a machete
And drive it into my heart
To feel the rhythm of my life
Satin and Chrome
Diamonds and Stones
Leather clad angel
Tears apart our home
When you reach a clearing
Under an oak tree
Bury my heart and my soul
From acorns grow a mighty forest
A mighty forest
Stout and strong of heart
Roots buried in mother earth
Solid firm and resolute
Under cathedral arches
With filtered light
The texture of grass under my feet
And summer rain on my face
The city walls enclose
Buildings loom electric light
Filters down through the smog
Chokes our lungs and sears our eyes
As deer caught in headlights
Transfixed by hurtling death
Terror stalks the innocent
As life force ebbs away
Satin and Chrome
Diamonds and stone
Leather clad angel
Silk shod devil
From open combat to tender loving nights
From bondage and chains to freedom and ties that bind
From mirrors and the naked to reflections in the pool
From Calvary to crosses and whips on the wall
From shrouds and leather to satin and silk
From butterflies and spiders to the webs of love
From chrysalis to fruition
From the darkness of hope to the light of despair
When all is counted
When all is submitted
When all is gathered in
All we are is Satin and Chrome
