"It's not caused by anything, it's just there. It waits. It lays in wait for the time when you think, 'It's fine now, I'm OK.' Then, the next thing you know, it's not OK." ~ Robin Williams (1951-2014)

lyrics

INK
(© 2014 Clint Nolan)

Embrace you when your mind is darkest
the circle is undone
your desperation intoxicates me
with the setting sun
you said you want a "normal" life
let's put that to the test
the angel's kiss escapes your brow
forked tongue upon your breast

Shuttered eyes don't see
and covered ears can't hear
I smile and dance
while I'm drowning in this ink
the taste is on my tongue
my skin is cold and numb
I shrug again
while I'm drowning in this ink

Lay you down on the stone cold ground
on a plot beside your grave
don't you worry I will take you
in a way you'll feel no pain
ushered under my black wing
we'll soothe your aching mind
there's nothing that I'll give to you
it's all just your own lies

Shuttered eyes don't see
and covered ears can't hear
I smile and dance
while I'm drowning in this ink
the taste is on my tongue
my skin is cold and numb
I shrug again
while I'm drowning in this ink
