    twist and turn the wind up key in my back,

    being a machine of course a heart I must lack, all I have are springs and gears, never to shed actual tears, for if I do I'll begin to rust, I'll start to crumble and gather dust, cold and calculating that's my mind, I once was loved and once was kind, I gather strength and...

    Catch it up, catch it up Check back in - time

    is running Rushing on - Open, plan, act, close Flows right past the end of day Swept on bubbles across the way Washing over - cleaning through What's arriving; next to do Party time - lets hit the street I'm out of here - got friends to meet

    even rust breaks an iron will, what can mortals do to draw the line? If those who drink from a dirty still accept disease from some hell's wine, Then what can we do that time can't heal? If your demon's watching steal your shine then pray to God that they're not real...

    I dream to lie with you,

    to quiver ardently , euphoric under your spell, To swoon, trembling adoringly beneath your beguiling gaze, To prey on your lips, and devour your charm, With your arrogant grace and willowy neck, Lisping sonnets do drip from your gilded tongue, As I, adoring puppet to your every...

    And if by mistake you see my existence ,

    I'll show you a word from my mind as it is, And perhaps you can delve and find what you need, Anything to soothe you for you malicious deeds , But be careful when I show , For all good things may overflow.

    Don't fear. The alphabet has congregated and will now appear. I know, I know. With words like this I just doesn't seem fair. But let's get one thing clear. Me plus words equals a love affair. True. Debate sure but by God you better concentrate. Because when people can't follow...

    The Confliction Of A Tortured Soul
