cast out in confidence. land locked or heaven sent. you went for broke till we were spent. rivaled by only all the snakes in your head. dropped out or braved the test. hands up or pay the debt. you went for throats till we were left dreaming about none of your charms. tell the world the devil wears a halo when the curtain's drawn. did it wear you down? being here? or is that just fear whoring at you for the first time? but it won't be the last cast out in silence and half-cocked in self defense. you wanted to know, no, this curse will never relent. did it wear you down? being here? or is that just fear lunging at you for the first time? the birds will kill you last cast out in a league with the blessed. always beautiful in circumspect. a sum lesser than the parts. a gain running at a deficit from the start. son you may have brains but you've got no heart. thinking out loud to do you harm. tell the nurse the angel hides his horns when the lights are on. the language. the blueprint. the second skin. the meaning. the divine math. the diagram. you were for broke till we were spent. rivaled only in your head. the sheriff. the reflex. a special word. a language unlearned. a light in the universe come to lift this curse. a language. a blueprint. a special word. you went for broke till we were spent. rivaled only in your head.
