In Your Icy River of Blood
A heart as cold as stone in a winter blast
Temporarily passionate but it will never last
In the modern day world the casualties are vast
Victims in a hurry overlook their lover’s past,
Groping through a fog I stumbled upon you
You were different and I thought you could be true
The greatest mistakes come when it’s all shiny and new
A broken heart allows survival of a very few,
Like so many in a garden of stone here I lay
Trusting an easy lover will make you pay and pay
With integrity as moldable as clay
No matter how hard you try she won’t stay,
In a river of blood I get washed away
Lord give me another chance I pray and pray
Tumbling down a frozen slope with a busted sleigh
Was that you my little adulteress, what did you say?
With all this insanity go wear your mask
Like Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde I’ll take the flask
Baby, when were you going to tell me, was I supposed to ask?
When it comes to telling the truth I’ll take you to task,
The scars that come from betrayal always seem to stay
Oh Baby, Baby, Baby, why won’t they go away?
I’m just here trying to keep the wolves at bay
A lie is not the truth just because of what you say,
Building crystalline bridges with only my dreams
No one there to live for or so it seems
Innocent enough to be impaled by her foolish schemes
The eternal illusion of peaches and cream.
