Even your betrayal tastes sweet to me
I want to affect surprise
but like usual I manage to take it in stride
let the breakers roll into me
close my eyes to feel it crash
against this heart of mine

I can almost taste it bleeding on my tongue
but thinking of my mouth just reminds me
of yours on my skin
the numbing divine way
you made my body your temple
sang praises with caresses
worshipped like the most devout acolyte
came to know me better and less
than anyone

because that's what falseness amounts to:
you'll find yourself blind and begging
to know the truths behind these mysteries
that were once me
you've made something unholy of this love
so I am closing off the alcoves
blowing out the candles
of this altar you once made of me
where I was the sacrifice
