Requiem

I like it like just like this
You be the sadist, I’ll be the masochist
We’ll sing of a thousand amazing graces

Amen

Now you’re trying to find a way out of this mess
while they’re fighting to find a way back to you
I’m running as fast as I can
But she’s alone

So bring it low
No one will ever know
Bring it low
violently
now she’s right where she always wanted to be.

You must like it like this
You can’t resist the chance to desecrate all the laws of gravity
Swing wild, then disappear
underground
but your demons are still waiting right here (and so are mine)

Now you’re trying to find a way out of this mess
while they’re fighting to find a way back to you
and I’m running as fast as I can
But she’s alone

So bring it low
No one will ever know
Bring it low
violently
now it’s just like she always dreamed it would be

I’ll see you on the other side…
of yourself
with the
Liars and sycophants
Martyrs and pacifists
Victims of circumstance
Traitors of consequence
Dying of
Crying of
Sighing of
Falling in the name of… (love)

I’m running as fast as I can
I’m running as fast as I can
As fast as I can…
