Sometimes She Escapes Me

In the desperate endeavor
to save myself forever
i've drowned in the lies purged from the pits
of my wit
and my lips
no longer whisper
the lullabies of ether
I lie in an insomniacs dream
and hallucinate my life flowing from the streams
of my heart, a bloody art
one would call far from my start
but no closer to the line of finish
and these feelings never diminish
I feel the weight of my sins upon thy shoulders
and she sings this could all be over..
sometimes she escapes me
but I can't forget the cold nights when we
held each other, that was all we had
with shaking arms, my own voice just as bad
i've sold my soul to a devil unknown
stripped myself from skin to bone
I weep as she guides my hand,
remember that she never did give a damn
