I’m not asking, I’m telling you This air’s not for whispers Too much time was spent on these walls Mine just caved in only fists like hammers will make amends) It spins so slow Affecting every blow A nosebleed in control The purpose Played out in front of me Now gone without trace I’ll re-inforce the barriers Lace them with perfect cold chrome It’s where I seem most as one That fortress will be my home
3.
Oh your lips when they move They move like scalpels, baybeh Your tongue, fast, smooth Oh your lips when they move Those kisses, like shrapnel shrapnel shrapnel SHRAPNEL The only way to truly get to know you is to dissect you, baybeh Inch by inch Layer by layer Slit by slit Brick by brick Piece by piece by piece by piece by piece by PIECES! Her every word a riot Delivered with predatory perfection Too much too much too much too much Of everything is never enough The want the want the want the want now WAIT Had to shun the touch, shun the touch And dude, I needed it bad, just not all at once Not all at once

Tie the knot wear the mask pull the rope hang rot in the sun for as long as time stands still right now darling right now darling dance dance show us bruised bent waiting waiting gagged bound happy happy it’s a go-go knife go-go knife (I said GO-GO KNIFE) late nite show

A familiar sense of purpose rushed over him He felt raw, defined There was sweat on his lips He had her kiss them Oh, the shivers down that spine They all acted like he’d expect He knew what came next A definition, his piece in the puzzle For each time seemingly closer closer closer to the core And now, again, he was whole But she was down down down down, out for the count But he was whole She was ruined He was ready She was down down down down, out for the count In for the kill OVER

I’ll see to it And make sure Ooooh, what’s that sound? Never reserved a ticket There was no extra seat I’m on the guest list To witness your defeat Egos breaking! What’s that sound? Egos breaking! Ooooh, what’s that sound? Egos breaking! What’s that sound? Egos breaking!

So you’re tired of being left a secret and not much more You said you’d let go Pitching all too familiar stories Variations on a melodrama Only different rooms Petty morals adding inches to every past mistake In tiny cities with bigger wounds So you’re tired of being left a secret and not much more You said you’d let go Every clue just might be the truth Tasted every tongue Fingers clutching every neck Sweet nothings lurking in every bed Every womb is a tomb Memorabilia will only slow you down Should’ve gotten out, but you can’t Each breath a ghasp Every word a whisper The tide is rising (You said you’d let go)

The office romance The office romance The office romance Is gonna LAST LAST LAST for as long as we’re both here There’s nothing like some corporate adultery, and honey: my conscience’s on sick leave The office romance The office romance The office romance Is gonna LAST LAST LAST for as long as we’re both here We’re climbing the de-evolutionary ladder Labrats stuck in a loop The days of collapse will never hit us now that we’ve got this sweet release Only the surveillance cams will know We’ll slither through the grids We’ll press delete We’ll keep our desks clean We’ll mess up the sheets It’ll be like daytime TV Re-runs of our prime Petty carnal crime Blessed overtime The office romance The office romance The office romance Is gonna last for as long as we’re both here My secretary may think she’s prey But compared to you, honey She’s…just…mere…BAIT! Sent off into boiling light Where they’re headed It feels quite right The office romance The office romance The office romance Is gonna last for as long as we’re both here
