Rip Me OpenHollow me out like a pumpkin on HalloweenScrape out my guts and throw them on the floorRip out my internal organs and throw them against the wallGrasp my brain- my common sense and set it aflame above the candle you place in my shellSo I’m easier to fill with crimson red rage.
On The Blue DanubeMay I drown-In that which is your sorrow and mineAs they perform the waltz upon my face,One- tear drop rolling down my cheekTwo- tear drop across the bridge of my noseThree- tear drop over the curve of my lip,One- shatter my dreamsTwo- break down my wallsThree- bury my soul.
