Poison & Lies


It was the stairway that lead me to you;
simple perfection’s intended to save me.
From the start
I knew you were the one.
But something inside of me lied.

Telling me to sleep,
telling me to cry.
Slipping in too deep
slipping in to die

That breath of life you sent
decayed all I had inside.
You killed me when you kissed me
as you shared your morbid fable.

Telling me to sleep,
telling me to cry.
Slipping in too deep,
slipping in to die.

Looking in the mirror
I cannot see anymore.
My face is cold,
my love fallen ill.
but only seeing myself inside,
and hearing your words.

Telling me to sleep,
telling me to cry.
Slipping in too deep,
slipping in to die.

The voice inside me
only comes from you.
Yet you hear nothing
except the stones moving inside,
slithering to the rhythm.

Telling me to sleep,
telling me to cry.
Slipping in too deep,
slipping in to die.
