New Song Lyrics

So, here we've come again to the end of another April, to the end of National Poetry Month. And once again, circumstances beyond my control, I didn't get to blog about poetry as much as I would've like, or had planned way back at the beginning of April, back when I was young and innocent and whatever. But, as it is the end, I've decided to finish off my poetry blogging with the reveal of my latest set of song lyrics.

These are also based on a scene in Effigy and once again, if you've read the story, you can probably figure out which scene. And if you haven't, well, maybe these will inspire you enough to want to read it...


Maelstrom

Your eyes snared me
Before I knew it'd been done
A single drop of rain
From a sky soaked in sun

And drenched I now am
As the storm carries on
The water keeps rising
But my will to swim is gone

Did you want to hold me under?
Did you want to watch me drown?
Well, it won't be long because this storm's now a maelstrom
And the black is pulling me down


You kissed me so gently
When the deed was done
You smiled so sweetly
It never occurred to me to run

Is that what you wanted
When you planned your attack?
Me looking in your eyes
As you stabbed me in the back?

Did you want to hold me under?
Did you want to watch me drown?
Well, it won't be long because this storm's now a maelstrom
And the black is pulling me down


What a clever little whore
With your clever little lies
Lure in your prey with a smile
Then trap them between your thighs

How did you ever get so close?
How did I let it get this far?
I've had my share of hurt before
But you were the first to scar

Did you want to hold me under?
Did you want to watch me drown?
Well, it won't be long because this storm's now a maelstrom
And the black is pulling me down


You were sobbing when I saw you last
Crocodile tears flooding your perfect eyes
Your siren song was on your lips
But for the first time, I saw past your guise

I'm through bleeding for you
But I won't try to fight my way free
I'm too far gone and done with the world
So let the world be done with me

Come now and hold me under
Come now and watch me drown
I'm a dead man adrift in a maelstrom
And the black is pulling me down.
