Criminal Image

I’ll be your fiction and flight

I’ll be your fight with denial

Criminal image of you

 

You’re a scepter in the dark

Brought tyranny to my heart

Criminal image of you

 

I draw your blood, steeped in sin

Drag a needle on your skin

Your hands have got me unglued

 

Can measure pause when we speak

You spin the spell, and I’m weak

Criminal image of you

 

You’re a siren, anything I want

Everything I want

You’re a siren, anything I want

Everything I want

 

I’ll take my penance with years

Gathering cups of your tears

Searing myself with their heat

 

Chained to your curse and sickness

When I taste blood in your kiss

The tiger trap holding me

 

Lashed out, no purpose, just pain

Three thousand miles away

Criminal image of you

 

White knuckle you made it stop

Your heart is hard as a rock

Criminal image of you

 

I have been so small in my head

I’m a hole in your thoughts

I have been so small in my head

But you’ve got me caught

 

Initial on every pill

The chemicals keep me still

Bursting synapse in a fugue

Drawing your picture at most

The only way I get close

Standing way back in the queue

 

Crimson red paint on my door

You’ve skipped over me before

Criminal image of you

 

And I am bound in your sleep

Prisoner to all your dreams

Criminal image of you
