lyrics

In the bedroom,
black light overhead revealing
walls are glowing.
Jane Doe lay there dead, but there was
no sign of struggle,
a piece-less puzzle
that I can’t seem to understand.

Yellow legal pad,
composing notes to self of motives
someone could have
anger this explosive.
I felt a stirring
no less disturbing
than what lay there in front of me.

Open eyelids, empty eyes, pale flesh.
Recognition sinking in,
there’s a pattern here,
and it’s much worse than my worst fear.

So I lay it out,
a map in front of me.
Sleep elusive
amid this killing spree.
I take a moment,
vertigo slowly
pulls out the rug from under me.

Open eyelids, empty eyes, pale flesh.
Recognition sinking in,
I’m a sinking ship,
and it’s much worse than my worse fear.

Everything I once held true,
every friend I’ve tried talking to
(since the reason and the rhyme
of taking someone’s life
was how I spent my 9 to 5)
left me like the breathless life of
her and him and her and him and her and him.
