Sacrilegious Sacrifice
2/10/2014

Wounded air I breathe in as I think of you
Crystal sand beneath my feet and still I struggle to walk towards you
Candy blue sky I see settling inside of you no room left for me
so I cry without you

Pleasurable pain roped around my throat
and my mind is high from the thought of you I smoked
I open a memory full of suite cases
where you hide your misery and your many faces

(I am your sacrilegious Sacrifice) you needed for just a short time,
I know now loving you is harmful to my mind and damn near a crime)

You sing yourself out of rainbows time and time and again
Unsettle soul I will love you until my world is over and yours begin
Please tell me you will give my love for you a fighting chance to win
Trust me on this I know our bond was never made just to be broken

(I am your sacrilegious Sacrifice) you needed for just a short time,
I know now loving you can be harmful to my mind and damn near a crime)
 

I disassembled the universe just to find you
Dismantled the earth just to get inside you
In the dark I hid the stars just so I can find you
Discovered god just to remind you
I can’t and will not live a life without you

(I am your sacrilegious Sacrifice) you needed for just a short time,
I know now loving you can be harmful to my mind and damn near a crime)
