i laid in the flowers and
i listened to them hum,
i think i loved your hands
the most, even when they
flayed me to the bone
and i don't think i'm
supposed to talk about -

the devil, he said i've
lived one hell of a life,
you see, just read my
name out backwards,
and god ain't nothing
but a dog, so don't you
even go wasting your time


(i left my conscience pining outside the door)

...I couldn't help but try saying "sgnulkoa" during the last stanza..

Me trying to do that ruined the moment.

This just reminds me of how hard it can be to confront yourself and force yourself to realize that sometimes the things that you love also destroy you. But you just can't help it.
