The Willing Well I: Fuel For The Feeding End

Album: Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV Volume 1 (2005)
  • Is this what I wish for those and all they know?
    Could depend on how cowardly I should act
    If she won't give me the love I came here for
    With pen I am armed here to react

    Hey now, hey now what is it boy?
    All the things that trouble you
    Visit your mirror image
    Of what might have once behaved
    Hey now, hey what is it boy?
    But I won't rest till dead, till dead do you part

    This is how I feel my God from what's been dealt
    The flies that flutter flight tonight
    Is it love that I'm feeling or is this hate the same
    The emotion's enough to kill the sane

    Feed little maggots off the Westside of your sin
    Run little maggot when they learn of what you did

    From start to finish I've made you feel this
    Discomfort in turn with the world you've learned
    To love through this hate to live with its weight
    A burden discerned in the blood you taste

    Why would you deny me answers?
    If I'm just a boy on the break of being
    Horror and hell through its fires
    Be brutally honest, was it better before me?

    In the curve of your body
    How I want her with me
    The truth of the story
    The Vishual, I wish you all

    The better end of all to come
    The truth be now here one by one
    I am to extend to none
    The memory that fuels the fire

    Watching his tale with the words he unfolds
    Conscience and cold we'd never know
    They scream as he laughs off the dust from his eyes
    These words will now learn of the dreams in his mind

    Could this be that hard for me?
    To configure a new love in hate
    To my new entity or banish it home to the grave
    No one is safe

    With the quickness strike out for the less of us doubt
    Mercy of the man who put the pen in our mouth
    Word write us well signed, "Forgiveness for sale"
    I'm through being full
    Of all the might you want killed
    The fiction will see the real
    The answer will question still
    In your body and blood as your parents once wept
    You will follow their lead one by one, every step

    Could this be that hard for me?
    To configure the new love and paint
    To my new entity or banish it home to the grave
    I will not save... your world
