A song about pain

lyrics

I will bury you again
I loathe your touch but hold you closer than a friend
My will to flee, each time you breathe, fades like the sand after the shore...
Then I awake to devastation that is yours

You sing so out of key,
and yet so loudly that I listen by default
The fault I find in clashing chords smothers the royal melody...
Within the noise I lose the root, my song is yours

Thorn in my side,
With a face like mine,
You've torn from my sight
The name that was my pride.
Hope recedes. This darkness breeds.
My heart, my heart, you've won.

I cannot do that which I want,
The weight of fear has kept me shackled to your taunts.
In rich deceit, you tend the weeds that drink what courage I had sown...
This wretched silence of my soul, to be alone!

Thorn in my side,
With a face like mine,
You've torn from my sight
The name that was my pride.
Hope recedes. This darkness breeds.
My heart, my heart, you've won.

I've never known myself in Truth,
for you have burrowed tooth and claw.
To the marrow, I've been soiled,
ravaged by the thought
of death and plague you've made to spread.
But only my hands bleed with red.
All I've loved you've taken as your own
