The Music Of Bitter Roses

Keep tabs on my mini heart

Posting suicide notes destined

To earn me medical treatment

Fresh blood drips on every page

Pharmaceuticals can’t contain my rage

The New Devereaux is just as poison

As the Old One

This Ain’t A Scene

But A God Damn Arms Race

I scream but homeland doesn’t hear me

America’s tradition is going down in flames

Late night sleeplessness

is an epiphany house

But you picked the wrong lock

The music from the bitter rose

Avenges every petal you crush from howling

In ignorant meddling with love not your own

The lake of my own cherishing

Is seldom full of gorgeous babes

But the thought of them is comforting

I need the right kind of woman

But none

can seduce the immortal sin away from me
