Anti-social Schizophrenic self deluding masochist.

Hard to please, I'm on my knees, can't you see it bothers me? Know your worth, you're on this earth, take this "you" and help me make it "we".

With every cut you kill us both, with every drop of bloodied soap, I stand here now, I stand a man, I stand here as a friend and not a foe.

Drop the knife, you think it's right, but can't you see the truth? As you slice, i lose my life, i give it up for you.

So I plead now, with heavy breath, please, cut no more. You scar your youth, you hide the truth, you're a woman, not a whore.

I see the tears you cry, alone, I see you in your battered home, take my hand, and we will roam, to lands beyond the sea.

With sands of white, and gulls at flight, and the tide, moving in. With silent shores, this land is yours, if you'd only come with me.

So drop the knife, become my wife, and stop this awful trend. We take our vows, we live out loud. And together, it will end.
