One finite blow
to an unfeeling heart;
one so numb
from this world, depart,
does it gracefully so,
from one fatal blow.

What to do? To Hell with it all
when your significant other
gives you nothing to live for,
anymore.

A sickening smile etched,
left to right, untruth after untruth he told;
his breath dead and cold,
broken words for a broken heart.
Exchange me this:
your soul for another lie;
hang my heart with your noose
but first let me say goodbye.

Head downtown,
across the street, never.
How clever...
A little red humor,
not for virgin eyes to see.
You haunt her dreams,
and make her psyche scream.
Let the demon leave your lips,
let your soul burn with your bliss.
Nick the carotid so gently
and bleed her out painlessly,
until she becomes
a transparent pale,
lifeless white;
ruined from the inside and out.
How do you swear
to a G-d you don't believe in?
She used to be your whole life
from "in sickness and in health"
without a care or worry.
Now all that's gone
and she's just words to your story.

A sickening smile etched,
left to right, untruth after untruth he told;
his breath dead and cold,
broken words for a broken heart.
Exchange me this:
your soul for another lie;
hang my heart with your noose
but first let me say goodbye.

What to do? To Hell with it all
when your significant other
gives you nothing to live for,
anymore.

One finite blow
to an unfeeling heart;
one so numb
from this world, depart,
does it gracefully so,
from one fatal blow.
