lyrics

I can hear them speak behind my back
She's gone and had a hard attack
She's slowly losing her mind
And I watch as your hands twist
Tight around her skinny wrists
Your lovesick Valentine
I feel the bruise you gave me
Spread against my skin
Stretching from my hairline
Down until my shin
I know my life's been pretty good
But mama is upset
Daddy's always angry
And I am just a wreck

*I feel you in my bones
I try to exorcise your ghost
But it has found a home
And I have been a sorry host
My heart just wants to roam
But you have gone and made the most
Of one more ugly lie
*The Stockholm Syndrome lullaby

I've started to believe I'm alone
Cause my head's stuffed with rag and bone
And I've been losing my mind
And I watch as our smiles fade
With skinny hearts and fire raids
A fuse lit by the blind
I feel the scars I've won
Scream into the wind
It makes me wonder if I
was chaste or if I sinned
I know my life's been just alright
But my lover breaks my neck
My friends are in the bathroom
And I am just a wreck

**

I love my captor
The trauma ward's rapture
I love my captor
The final chapter
I thought I was worth a lot
But I love it when you say I'm not
I watch you hold her taught
And I feel myself shaking
fraught with weight from waking
to the dawn
The moon falls into the sea
And I cry anon

**
Hush now, don't you cry, the Stockholm Syndrome Lullaby
Learn to love a lie, the Stockholm Syndrome Lullaby
Hush now, baby, don't you cry, your crib's a cage and you're stuck there til you die
