Cat got your tongue?

Chasing down the alley way,
Afraid? Honey, you should be,
Cat got your tongue?
Baby, abuse me, misuse me.

Taste venom on your chapped lips,
Nothing here that I can’t fix,
Fall to the floor, young dove, die,
I don’t care, I don’t, you see,
The dusk to dawn,
Who’s next in line?
No one, the wind calls,
Tear me down.

Cyanide sunset, take me away,
Put a gun to my head, fire, go on,
What makes you think I’m scared? I’m not,
I am dead inside, so empty, so emotionless,
I blame it on the drugs I fired into my body, again and again,
This dark sin was written,
You told me to burn the book, but I didn’t,
I burnt myself instead, then cut myself open,
The blood poured from parted flesh,
Drip. Drop. Drip.
I laughed like a mechanical toy,
A wind up, a joke, provoked,
Evoked. But yet I’m not what I seem,
Who do I claim to be? I wear
This mask of despair, don’t you see?
Flashes of silver, shining red,
I laugh, like a clown,
I laugh, once again,
And nobody notices how fake it is.

Back at the alleyway, you stand with a smile,
I push you back, but physics, defied,
We stumble forward, tumble over,
I hear your scream, I see the blood,
I start to shake, where am I?

Someone claimed to know me,
Sugar, I'm a mystery.

I wanted more that I can have,
I wanted all that I won’t get,
I wanted perfection, a cure for insanity,
But all I get are pills and shots to fix me,
They don’t help. I pull the blade out, drag it down,
Push it down, I fall down.
