“It’s the beast. It’s my heart. It’s open…” Brand New

You Call Me Darlin.

Though it means nothing to you
And everything to me
You are a computer that learns
You outmaneuver me
Even though I realize
I’m the one that taught you those moves
You asked about my health, my mother
Not because you care about either
Its just the conversation starter
The lead into what you really want to talk about:
You.

And I remind you frankly
That nothing has changed
I still love you
You pretend you didnt hear me.
Reminding me
Rewarding me
With silence on the matter
That nothing has changed for you either.

Lady Stockholm

She resents the cage
But time will temper
Her spirit wanes
Lonely and desperate
She will accept your crumbs
Welcome them, even.
Thats when you know
You’ve broken her
Mount her head on your wall
A trophy of your cruelty
