Torn Again. (2/8/04)

Hey temptation

you made me bleed again.

You made your cresset shaped

incision and just pushed me farther away.

Hey lust

you unsatisfied little fiend

I hope you’re pleased with all

the mistakes I’ve made to give

us what we need.

I’m torn again.


I’m torn again

Hey greed

you’ve amounted up to some

you’ve buried skeletons in my closet

to satisfy your money ache.

Hey pride

you struggled to the end

you took the loss and used the tears to polish your six pointed star.

I’m torn again


I’m torn again.

I can’t be more than these sins

enough to cleanse my spirits wounds

or stitch them up...

I’m torn again.
