Hello I know you’re whole again and out there dancing in the colored lights
With superficial fickle eyes upon you blind to what you
Hold inside you yellow blooded ice eyed lady of temptation
Dove Plume over snake skin in all innocence you lacerate but hey
I learned a thing or two from watching you who wields the knife just right
I’m cutting sharp and harder than I used to thanks to you

Hello six months alone finally disclosed to me this revelation
Twisted little angel face I loved you more than all creation
But all my mind and all my time got bent into your situation
Mutilated hearts scarred scattered shards of shattered inspiration but hey
You’re damaged too and frankly I should pay you thanks
For all the dark decay our mutual destruction made illuminate

Hello I know you’re not alone but you’re lonely and I know you think its fine
Dream beneath another’s sheets but any bed you’re sleeping in’s still mine
A pair like you and me so fair of heart so hard of mind
So unprepared so rare to find a mirror’s cracks exactly matching mine
Hello I know it’s ridiculous but the dissonance was still my gift to you
At least a part of it the serpent struck the heart of it
I’m sorry miss you’re terrible but I still love you
