Boats in bottles and empty bottles on boats,
I left them there with gashes in their throats.

The secrets no one should ever know,
Have I really hit an all time low?

Dragging corpses through the mirrors of my mind,
Denying? Replying? That's just unkind.

I did nothing, I respond in my head,
Muted by the hope that I'll wake up dead.

I long to be everything you despise,
I'm sick of these pathetic, useless lies.

A cold hearted sinner without a soul,
These acidic memories have taken their toll.

I long to feel the touch of a human again,
To be held, loved and fucked in the rain.

I would bleed into the river if you asked me to,
I would. Oh, wait... It's far too soon.

I almost forgot that you don't comprehend,
And that you still believe my heart's on the mend.

I killed again, I'm sorry, I know I was wrong,
Even the heartless can show feeling through song.

I wanted to see their blood on my hands,
Send me away, no one else understands.

I have to be shut up and locked away,
Even though you still believe every word that I say.

What I lack in innocence I make up for in wit,
I'll strike a match to burn the writ.

Why don't you see through this pointless mask?
Just leave me be... or is that too much to ask?

We fight again, time after time,
I know this is a warning sign.

I'm leaving tonight after the words are hurled,
I'm just a corrupt stranger from a different world.
