They finally understand it now

All the freak outs and shallow howls

It took awhile, but now they see

Finally it all came to be

Etched in my arm, this sin had a name

A dirty little secret

Filth hidden in my brain

But they knew I couldn't always keep it

Now with a lifeless arm

I carved it in before I let this go

Like a lover's please inscribed to a tree

This pot luck, penny wish wouldn't do any good

I'll gasp for breath and utter none

Almost out of this life that's left

I draw an image of you in my arms

A rising chest, with you in my cleft.

Echo my voice now with your own

I promised always to stay so strong

But in weakness I found a kiss

Now I can quote

"I'd die without this."
