In the darkest of times,
I know I can turn to you
Shake me down for my nickels and dimes,
Let your mind erode my view
What tainted secrets do those floral eyes hide
Torn away from the past, without a guide
Did they beat you and break you?
Did they treat you like a slut?
All I want is the truth to come through
But it quickly dissolves, from your mind it's been cut
A mechanism for safety, a way to feel free
Though your soul is caught in a raging black sea
I don't recall what you said back then
What I do know is that while we may just be friends
I care like a lover, I'll be here time and time again
So if you ever feel like looking back through the lens
I'll listen and weep,
To all of the secrets you keep
The voices that'll stay,
Till you're empty and gray
Broken deeply in the past,
I'll attempt to make amends
To demons still unsurpassed,
From this mortal coil you'll transcend.
