i will sink behind your emerald eyes. stoke the creaking furnace down inside. turn this stone into a hearth and home to light your way through the night. you will grind the paint from your aching teeth. silver rings will rub your fingers green. try to snap out of this awful trap but wings of glass cannot last. figured somehow you would take this to your grave. rise up this morning, all your debts are getting paid. all right!
