lyrics

eyes open eyes shut
inside a cage made umbrageous, causing pain, the blade is prosaic and the blame is the same, but the scars are poetic, they speak without lips, like a book full of braille, but carved into her hips, while she reads through the pages now wet with warm tears, all the mouth covered screams, all the cold silent years, summed up in a bottle of truth and of lies, her friend by her side while she sinks and she cries to a name she had learned that her parents have spoken in circles and turns, all those promises broken, they said that he'd stay, that he wouldn't be cruel like the friends she made and then lost in a foolish, proud second of reaching for ways she could feel uninhibited, play for a night of profligacy, stay for a day and then lost for month, the light in her head and the black in her gut, and her eyes and her eyes and her lips that she bites as leads her beloved to believe that she lies down to sleep in place that is safe in their sight just to please their unease, avoid meaningless fights

she is full of light, even when things don’t feel so right

there is so much dark, all around she looks for her heart
