Seabound (2)

Poisonous Friend

You frighten me
You spy on me
You're scaring me
You care for me

I have a poisonous friend
She's living in the house
She likes to move on bare skin
She knows my body inside out

I don't recall when this affair began
She was simply there
Now I am shaken by the fear she could assault me
But I must not show it, not to her

Sometimes I watch her kill
Cold eyes and no restraint
And I wonder how it feels
To annihilate a friend

You frighten me
It's getting harder to conceal
You spy on me
All my secrets are revealed

You're scaring me
A play on words for us to see
You care for me
I find this harder to believe


Say goodbye to gravity
Say goodbye to sanity

A ray of hope
Down to the wire
(Gone, gone)
Hand me a match
This is a story about fire

One by one
We sacrificed our pawns
For our queen
To play her way
Rooks and knights
Built a solid wall
For her protection

One by one
We couldn't go on
To keep the balance between
Madness and affection
Our queen enchanted everyone
Fatal play
One night
Our queen just walked away

Every time we managed to calm down again
You returned with more poison
Every time we managed to navigate a while
You filled our souls with more outrage

When the sirens broke down
We were still here
Igniting more fires
To burn down every

When the towers collapsed
You whispered my name
Princess of fire
I do remember you

Darkness comes
At nightfall
This place is quiet and abandoned
Smoke and ember
Attest to what we had
Now checkered wasteland

One by one
We sacrificed our pawns
To please our queen
Fulfill her desire
Our walls have fallen
Treasures stolen
Our queen is long long gone
And I dream of fire
