they say Lucifer was an angel once

You: ďYouíre a godsendĒ
Me: ďYouíre like the devil in my veinsĒ

Screw fate
let this be an opportunity
to let loneliness fuck us
from the inside

I was dead before I met you
and Iím dead now that youíre gone

I wasnít born to feel the brand
of your hands on my skin
tattooing through the layers
of scar tissue Iíve been wearing
like badges of honour

Iím the child science wouldnít let die
and have stolen the breath
of those more worthy of this world

Itís easy to forget Iím alive
that a heart beats somewhere
deep inside †this silence
I donít speak

Iím tired of your never ending suicide
Iím tired of this cage youíve left me in

Iím tired of the way lonely slips
through my brain chemistry
and turns my blood to ice crystals
that scream your name in the dark
