- What Matters
puppet on a string MAG
Beautiful dresses, eyes too bright;
a girl sells her body to the night.
Dark make-up, hungry wishes;
long nights filled with smoky kisses.
Men too lonely, sheets too bloody;
still she'll walk the streets for money.
Burning hurt and heated rush;
life destroys her sanguine blush.
Aching for love, relying on lust;
betrayed by men she can't help but trust.
Broken eyes, dirty lace;
one blow could kill that fragile face.
Days filled with lasting sorrow;
nothing but pain in her tomorrow.
And when she tries so hard to feel;
she can't earn back what they steal.
