you are my one lingering doubt
the shadow that dims every smile
i close my eyes and smell vanilla
lick my lips and taste denial

i'm dancing on thin ice again
just to drown in your lurid eyes
peering into your translucent heart
leads to my bittersweet demise

the suffocating silence begins to sing
of silver torment and fatal bliss
a distorted illusion of you appears
to destroy me with the memory of a kiss
