Your Debt

Tossing and turning, the night lingers long
She holds me hostage, her grasp very strong 
I heard my dream spin, her lips to my ears
Asking her to stop, only brought more tears

She’s proceeds to hurt, twisting more dam lies
With what we go through, another friend dies
Cold sweat brings the chills, blankets and sheets wet
She holds me hostage, they’ll never pay your debt

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
