Kicking Angels in the Teeth

why don't you say what's on your mind
engage dissolve all that's inside
embrace the sorrow of your need
and remember that this flesh isn't free

caught you enthralled
well disinfect it with all might
boil it over
until we learn
to burn in the light

yellow candy pink dress above the scar
when revealed you glow like August stars
you're kicking angels in the teeth
when it should be the scum
you like beneath

so while I'm here won't you
let your lonely guard down
before far darker
resistances are unwound
it's talk talk talk talk talk before
you break down
and there is nothing more
than your blank lulling sound
