    THE PROPHET AND THE BEAST

    You talk me up
    You drain the life from me
    You call me up laughing in tongues
    I doubt your game
    I question your name
    Please! Tell me your name!

    You rape my soul
    I can’t make me whole
    You voodoo my sexuality
    You command fire to follow me
    You speak with intelligence
    Choke my spirit inbetween personalities
    My heart is naïve to which one of you is killing me
    Please! Tell me your name!

    You want me to believe in you
    So you piss on my faith
    Beat me down like the school kids that teased you
    Demented and cursed in a sea of sin
    Eyes rotating on an axis of an unknown universe of anger
    You let me go warning me of danger
    Begging me to heal you
    So please tell me your name!

    Suicidal tendencies
    Devils mocking your lack of faith in me
    Alcohol splashing on hollow walls to reveal the identity of your abusers
    You have to succeed so I’ll be a little bit closer to your confusion
    Please tell me your name!

    I tried to pray for you
    But you told me GOD never knew you
    You cried out in a bed of sick fetishes
    Unable to make love to reality
    Breathing fast
    You scream in shame
    Fluck my name!

    Singing backwards on gospel tunes
    Howling at the moon to end the night
    And a voice whispers back to you
    Run!
    Pray!
    But please for GOD’S sake
    Tell me your name!
