I miss the warm embrace I felt
First time you touched me
Secure and safe in open arms
I should have known you'd crush me

A snake, you were when we met
I loved you anyway
Pulling out your poisoned fangs
The venom never goes away

Serpent swims free in my blood
Dragons sleeping in my veins
Jekyll speaking with tongue
Roach egg laying in my brain

Stalked beneath your shadow
Sleepwalking to the gallows
I'm the sun that beats your brow in
Till I finally threw the towel in

Never knowing if I'd wake up
In a whirlpool, got redundant
My brain was just some driftwood
In a cesspool I became dead

From a rock star to a desk fool
Was my destiny someone said
Life's a tide pool
Taste the waters, life's abundant

Taste me
