lyrics

Youth—
so alluring, so alight
My envy boils in the night
As she struts on by

Breathe in
The scent of naivety
Shame about the brevity
But what lasts anyway?

Her skin is soft
‘Neath eyes so dull
Her placeless lilt
Lures me into a lull

What’s that—
Are you talking to me?
Surely this must be
Some kind of mistake

(No, she says) Please
Let me lead you astray
Down some dark alleyway
Let’s have some fun

Her touch is hot
My blood runs cold
She softly hisses
What could could unfold

My skin is taut
My mind’s gone numb
My senses fraught
With what’s to come

So slam the brakes
Recognize this path you take
Is merely a short walk
To the gallows
And heed the call
Ignore the fact you want it all
And scurry back to
The shallows

My skin is loose
Mind not so sharp
Still I realize
This is not my part
