I came running every time you said the word
Your haves and have-nots built this house
And won't you step forward into the light?
Won't it burn and glare like the quiet between us?
Dirt-fed and tarnished, but I am golden
Underneath, and today won't flake and peel away
And what's in a name won't just fall away
Hand will unclasp, but blood's forever.
Give me a reason why things had to go this way
You hung on my back, your words across my face
Call it a slip of the tongue, call it your party phase
I'll call it "I don't owe you anything."
Chamber is loaded
With every promise you couldn't keep
Cross this line, cross hands and hearts
Like one drawn around a dream from yesterday
And the vultures and hawks circle over
In the heat of what you are:
A moment; and I'm tonight's first kill
Give me your fucking worst
I'll give you what's left
