I still feel raw
Kind of like you owe me more
And as far as you are concerned
I earned your slamming door
Not quite dirty, not quite clean
Not quite ready for what i’ve seen
I know who is against me
I feel you won’t protect me
And now I listen to your lies
Tell myself I won’t do it one more time
I know you think you own me
When you need me to be there, I won’t be
Behind the veil, I see
what you’d have me see
Only I’m all too aware
of tricks your mind plays on me
When nothing works in this scene
What’s so lovely as a dream?


from Blue Skies Black, released February 29, 2012
