    Marionette Show

    You finally
    let my heart go.
    Untied our strings ... now
    I was dirty from my fall
    You dropped me right in the mud ...
    you know...
    But .... look at me now
    Standing in the pouring rain
    Tendils of soaking hair curving down my bare back
    drowning ivy
    Sparkling clean new girl
    Lipstick smeared down my chin , ha..
    they must wonder whose blood I've been sucking.
    Oh I've been sick over you
    This hazy year gone by.
    Your virus , eating my core.
    As I sat .. in the pain-lit dark
    Contemplated...
    What went wrong, if it was me
    or you ?
    Waiting
    for this curse to abate.
    Trying... not to hate
    as you wound my strings tightly
    and yanked
    your lips moving to my ear and murmuring
    " Baby.. your dance , I once loved...
    It bores me today...
    But remain on your shelf in my absence
    While I wander off and play
    never forget
    you're mine...
    my darling marionette
    no one loves you more
    then I.."
    Now... this last blow...
    you've bought me to my knees again
    in this smoky , loud disco
    With that apathetic girl clinging to your side.
    My mouth fallen open in
    Incomprehension.
    I'm fed the bitter medicine
    and through the sting , I suddenly ...finally
    feel good
    and light again
    I'm walkin in the rain , the dirts washing down
    Sparkling clean new girl.
