Sugar and Salt

Scorched honey hardened into shards of glass

You hope when it tears you apart it won't hurt near as bad

But the stinging in your veins isn't sweet like molasses

And you hold your breath tight as the pain passes

Can't you see, it'll never be the same again

Cause now you're layered full of ash and scars

You're not exactly sure where it is you fell apart

And you're hoping the sugar will mend what the salt ate alive

But you realize there's no changing when you're trying to survive

Can't you feel these dreams hammering at your head

And you rushed for candied apples but they were covered in blood

The pain comes rushing in to damage like the floods

You'll never see my eyes turn the color they did that day

And you'll never understand why I feel someone should pay
