What Was Hostage

Tell him to come get all your bloody crucifixes

Then let him go back to wherever he already is

Your heart, you’ve hung out for the entire world to see

You’ve scraped your bones clean how much more can you bleed

  2. “How much more can you bleed?” How many have been in such a position. Right. Raw. On target.
