Ice

the ice is thin
come on dive in
underneath my lucid skin
the cold is lost, forgotten

hours pass days pass
time stands still
light gets darks
and darkness fills my
secret heart forbidden

I think you worried for me then
the subtle ways that I'd give in
but I know
you liked the show

tied down to this
bed of shame
you tried to move around
the pain
but all your soul
is anchored

the only comfort is the
moving of the river
you enter into me a lie
upon your lips
offer what you can
I'll take all that I can get
only a fool's here

I don't like your
tragic sighs
as if your god has
passed you by
well hey fool
that's your deception

your angels speak
with jilted tongue
the serpent's tale
has come undone
you have strength
to squander

the only comfort is
the moving of the river
you enter into me a lie
upon your lips
offer what you can
I'll take all I can get
only a fool's here to stay
only a fools here to stay
only a fools here
