about

I wrote this quite a while ago. It's about somebody, and that somebody knows who she is.

lyrics

My mind is reaching overload
As I rush throught he door
Slam it shut behind me
And drop down on the floor
Arrows thud into the wood
More and more and more
Right behind me

Grab a pewter pitcher
Tear apart my skull
Pour the water through my brain
Until my thoughts grow dull
Sparks will plague this dying circuit
'till my corpse is cold
And yet you hold me
And yet you hold me

You hold me, you keep me tucked away
You hold me, you love me anyway
You hold me, you keep me tucked away
Oh yes you hold me.

Villagers surround me
Through the night and day
Holding fire and pitchforks
They won't go away
I can't help but listen
To the things they say
Are they about me?

I miss the warmth of your embrace
I miss the words you say
You hold a mirror to my brain
And keep the Beast at bay
I need you here because you know
What I face every day
And yet you hold me
And yet you hold me

(Sparks will plague this dying circuit)
You hold me, you keep me tucked away
(Sparks will plague this dying circuit)
You hold me, you love me anyway
(Sparks will plague this dying circuit)
You hold me, you keep me tucked away
('till the end)
Oh yes you hold me.
