It took so long to remember just what happened.
I was so young and vestal then,
you know it hurt me,
but I'm breathing so I guess I'm still alive
even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.
I've got my hands bound,
and my head down, and my eyes closed,
my throats wide open.
I do unto others what has been done to me
Do unto others what has been done to you
I'm treading water,
I need to sleep a while.
My lamb and martyr,
you look so precious.
Wont you, won't you come a bit closer,
close enough so I can smell you.
I need you to feel this,
I can't stand to burn too long.
