I saw their lights blinking off the road a couple of kids only half-grown I knew that the Christian thing was to lend them a hand so I stepped on my brake and got out of my van "oh thank you sir it's so nice to see such a friendly face in such a dark place you can take us wherever you'd like to go we are on the road we're just on the road" the girl was young, the prettiest thing she had a smile that could make you sing I saw the boy shift in his seat I didn't like how he looked at me "alright sir, that's far enough we'll be going on all you have is coming with us get out of the seat and shut the fuck up I am not afraid not afraid to use this gun" I saw their lights vanish down the road in my chest a bullet found home I wonder if God will ever make them pay and why he decided to take me today

I don't know what to think, so I don't think anymore there's nothing like a chain, to tie you to the floor it's hard to hear your pain, it pains me even more I wish all your complaints, would wash up on the shore I don't know what to do, so I haven't moved in weeks there's nothing in your heart, that could ever comfort me still I hold out hope, for what we used to be looking at it now, my shallow, stupid scheme now that we're lost we're all lost I don't know what to do, cause you taught me how to think but theres something in your flow, that says we're not in sync so pray leave me alone, I expect you could conceive how your bite and claw, could take me to the brink now I'm driving down the road, where your eyes are out of reach and the cops won't take me home, if I stay under 90 see theres nothing by my side but some jack split with caffeine what else do I need, what else do I need? the moon and the stars can't set me free but you won't come and capture me the thoughts in my head won't let me be but your words no longer threaten me your silent mouth won't cut through me cause you can't come and capture me the dark and the night will cover me and you will not ever come for me

you've got to say it to her you have got to give her some words you've got a question for her about what you just heard you've got to say it to her these words just feel so absurd you've got a question for her about those sounds that you heard you've got this creeping inside you and dear, i hope you're frightened too its nothing to be ashamed of your crash will fulfill my want all things will crumble before us this fruit that grew from your blood you know its realm is obscured your father showed you the word you've got to bring this to her you've got to close off the world you've got to say it to her you have got to give her some words you've got an answer for her about the evil you stirred you've got this creeping inside you and dear, i hope you're frightened too its nothing to be ashamed of your crash will fulfill my want all things will crumble before us this fruit that grew from your blood I want to drown it in pills I hope it never heals I want to make it squeal I hope it never kills you've got to say it to her you have got to give her some words you've got a question for her about what you just heard

he's waiting for me points in my veins are comforting burning black I bleed as my skin is opening wrapped in my shell the sharpened sheen soon its will takes over me euphoric cells in conjoining soon I'll feel sweet nothing he's waiting for me I'm all dressed in pink covered scars I'll never show hope these wings will make me float wrapped in my shell the sharpened sheen soon its will takes over me euphoric cells in conjoining soon I'll feel sweet nothing he'll find me he'll find me he'll find me or he'll find my skin

it's three o clock in the morning and I don't know what to do my friends have all gone but you're still in my room theres a light from the door it creaks closed as you move and I just lay in silence, not knowing what to do as you approach my bed, and in you start to slip I remember what they said, how I'd end up like this I can smell whats on your breath, feel whats between your hips you calling me a tease, well now you're having it its three-fifteen in the morning and I think you're almost through I'm staring at the ceiling, wishing your face would turn blue your hands around my wrists tell me its no use I don't want to to me this is a nightmare, but to you I'm just a screw I wonder how you'll say that I was into it I wonder who, if anyone, will even give a shit they know you as the big star, the guy who never quits and me I'm just someone with my arm stuck in a twist they won't believe me when its your word against mine they'll say it was my clothes or I glanced into your eyes it makes me want to scream, but I also want to hide one thing I won't forget is you were the coward that night
