Hearts In A Storm

Seated with my phantoms around me

Pass me another beer; give me another cause to self destruct

My mother blames me for the sins of others

My head and heart lay with unstable lovers

And now I don’t know which way to turn

 

And now I will walk these solemn streets

And I can only hope they eat me alive

I can only hope to destroy what rots inside

 

I know better than to fall in love in the midst of storm

And I should tell them and pull them down with me

Or should I leave them in silence but forever free

 

Awakened and there’s nothing to hope for

Pass me another shot; I want to destroy myself in your arms

My father blessed me with the genetics of darkness

Should I kiss my lover or render him heartless

And now there’s nothing but dust to save

 

And I will stray between the truth and a haze

And I can only hope my demons will fade

I can only hope he may love me someday

 

I know better than to fall in love in the midst of storm

And I should tell them and pull them down with me

Or should I leave them in silence but forever free

The End
