Lacking all motive (on account of such digression),
I feel like I know her (this requires much dissection),
She makes me want to die (she can see right through me),
I'm just another passerby (carefully, she's moving),
She sees the wear on my skin (and thinks she can fix it),
She might steal my soul (oh, I'll hardly miss it),
I'll be sleeping while she's screaming (hardly, she's choking),
I'm almost dreaming (and she thought I was joking),
I warned her of my friend (the one that wakes when I slumber),
The he would bring about her end (and I'm all the more humble),
My counterpart is insatiable (blood: his only gain),
But without him I'm replaceable (he always cleans his stains),
I'm a hero (by my own definition),
That's all you need to know (he offers such conviction),
I've attempted to end him (with no such success),
All that's left is to blend in (and so I digress),
I've beheld his glory (unappetizing as it may be),
I'm the muse of his story (always haunting me),
I suppose to have no limitations (only his objectives),
This much control takes much gestation (none can protect us),
I say I'll soothe him (as his teeth marry skin),
But I refuse to remove him (I enjoy his sin),
My status is stationary (until I finally mute him),
His blood trail is legendary (which makes me no less cute, then),
In an effort for silence (I attempt an insurrection),
He misunderstood this (and fled with vile inflection),
It seems he is banished (with no identifying marks),
Now my lust is famished (I must make a new start),
I'm burning alive without him (this fire too consuming),
I'm a dwindling pyre of sin (his body I'll be exhuming),
So, goodbye sanity (and all that came with it),
I'll begin a new calamity (one much more gifted),
So play the song (all who are righteous),
I'll never sing along (and you'll never stop this).
