Fingers caressing charcoal

Stretching morbid images

Shadowing clean paper

Blackening what once was pure

---

Some say beauty comes from pain

Maybe that is why you drive me insane

Cutting my mind until I can no longer tell

Which way is to Heaven and which is to Hell

---

Lip caressing chocolate

Digging into boundaries

Lustful taste incomplete

Staining the figure of innocence

---

Some say beauty comes from pain

Maybe that is why you drive me insane

Cutting my mind until I can no longer tell

Which way is to Heaven and which is it Hell

---

I'm just so confused, I really can't see

What I want from you, who I want you to be

Because I know I don't know you, there is no way

That I could have, and still I want to someday

So I keep getting angry, then falling down

Into some sorrow so that I can drown

I can remember being happy at one time

And being with you was more than sublime

But being away isn't worth the price

Of feeling like I have done the worst vice

So I ask you for love, then I plea take it away

You must be confused, so am I, I must say

That is why I keep saying your love deceives

And am continually asking you to leave

Wishing you could want me somehow

And with the same longing hating you now

Some say beauty comes from pain

Maybe that is why you drive me insane

Cutting my mind until I can no longer tell

Which way is to Heaven and which is to Hell
