Constantly announcing hell
The joy not to be
To die of not dying
How to be appalled
When you’re death’s best friend

Condemned to choke
Every word I pray

“Who was pretending us?”

Condemned to choke
Every word I pray

You came
And read the current and the gas
You closed the doors in our house politely
Like someone who isn’t well versed in life

Cede to wash the knife
and thy lust wants 
my hash life
Hell won’t tolerate hymns
 
You once seemed to love
the tumbling of infarction
the oddments of destruction
the effort to stay:
a blackmail
decay
 
Life lays in your heart like in a coffin
Stop faking suffering like a child
Bonds of silk and vows of lead weight
in rotten milk - this was your feast plate
 
Now all your veins burst
all fears and wrongs
Hell won’t tolerate hymns
 
You once seemed to love
the tumbling of infarction
the oddments of destruction
the effort to stay:
a blackmail
decay
 
Life lays in your heart like in a coffin
Stop faking suffering like a child
Bonds of silk and vows of lead weight
in rotten milk - this was your feast plate
