The Jaws of Life


The Jaws of Life Could Take Me Home Tonight

Wrestling the wreckage, I'm fading into darkness unknown.
My head is going straight to voicemail, missing calls from home.
These veins are erratically static, strung out on a backseat;
but the memory of music shall comfort me.
I am so scared, but trapped in a melody.
A bittersweet temporary goodbye.
Not a stranger in sight to notice that I'm not alright.
In this night, take me back to simpler times;
when these wheels never spun out on the ice.
Pain has made me so slippery,
giving into triggering trickery.
I am in need of jaws to bite off these flaws.
I am bleeding out, my secrets shout!
Is it too late tonight to be found?
