Abattoir Memoirs

She picked you from the crop
Culled you with her scythe
Popped you from the bud
With her hunting knife
You gave her all control -
Made you bleed in the sand
Under the summer sun
And her chain of command

Just how long did it take you to fall
From the tree you grew so tall?
You found her lies at the root of cause
Coiled, the snake with open jaws.

How many times did it take for you to cave?
When the crows were lying in wait for mistakes.
Any hair, any line, any moan out of place,
Could send them in a boiling rage.
Which one told you to cave?

Ambling toward the abattoir
You’ve grown complacent
To her witchery, her charms
You struggle to place it
But she has you ensnared
A bull in a yolk
And with those dirty hands
I promise you’ll choke

Just how long did it take for you to see
How her sultry eyes have sewn the seeds of treachery?
If you foundher dead- bullet in the head,
You'd reminisce the times you bled.

All for her.

Unfuck her.
Remove her stain.
She’s on my mind, inside my brain
I’m going insane
I feel insane
There’s nothing that can soothe the pain.
Remove her stain
Remove her stain from inside my brain.

I’m going fucking insane.
