A Halo in Hell

Turn your face towards the sun
And darkness falls behind you
I’ve never had this take so long
My heart strings fray to find you
My halo flickers overhead
These sins I can’t afford
But I have died a thousand deaths
And I fear not one more

I write a song everyday. Today was this. 

To love the beautiful is ordinary
To love the ordinary is beautiful

Interlude in Em

She’s creeping in
So cruel, to be so torn apart
To turn so blue,
We’re crawling up so high,
So high

When you live in the dark 
So long, it starts to love you back
My idols are dead
And my enemies were right,
So right

Supersick

I feel a little bit out of place
With this whole damn race
I feel a little bit out of place
With this whole damn race

Isolation making scars
I can tear your world apart

You know the first time I met her
She says I was disturbed
You know the first time I met her
She says I was disturbed

You know it’s hard not to want
When you get offered none
It’s hard not to want
When you get offered none

Isolation making scars
I can tear the world apart

Dawn it breaks, still I’m wide awake
Only stay till it’s light again
And I see you baby, I see you falling
See you baby, and you won’t bring me down

Isolation making scars
I can tear your world apart

In the amber of the moment
I rip my mind away
Solitude is nice to visit
But a poor place to stay

I have a short number of days before I’m burning in hell forever. So I want to make them count.

Bella Donna and the Devil’s Breath

Old man dying on the road
Old man dying on the road side
Little boy cuddlin’ the cold
Little boy, older than he owes by

They put me on a morphine drip
I don’t wanna be a soldier
They put me on a morphine drip
I ain’t gonna be a soldier

Little girl crying in the cold
How many are there low, down
Russian boy, needles in the bowls
Russian boy, he don’t even know sides
Old man dribbles in the folds
Dogs out barking on the chains, by
River gonna take me to the bones
Ride that pack like a wolf’s eye

The took me a morphine drip
I don’t wanna be a soldier
They put me on a morphine drip
I ain’t gonna be a soldier

keeps getting stuck in my head. Rough, but fun

The prettier they are
The more it hurts when they’re gone
I bare you my soul
Just for turning me on
What are Russian kids taught
About world war two
And what do we leave out
About the things that we do
Temptation ain’t dressed
In a red cape and horns
She comes as every dream
You’ve ever wished for
Every time I see her
The more it hurts that she’s gone
I bared her my soul
Just for turning me on

She lifted my chaos
When a warm voice was needed
Danced with my angels
Through heavy bleak seasons
And I liked her not
For the heaven-white pieces
But how the sound of her name
Could silence my demons
