I wrote this after watching some George Carlin and Bill Hicks and thinking about what true freedom of speech really is... enjoy,

CENSOR

I watched the light in your glorious eyes grow dark
I listened to the fading beats, of your dying heart
I pressed my lips to yours in a vain attempt to grant you life
I wept myself into a grave and now we’re side by side

I let your skeleton hands wrap around my throat
I felt your love arrive in the form of your icy control
I screamed as you cut out my eyes insisting its alright
I was left bleeding by the roadside in the dead of night

Your crystalline world brought to the edge
Shattering into a thousand sharp shards
Your voice growing dim as I go deaf
Too far away to even be heard

Your icy touch, oh how I love your skin
Your proposition of care, how I love this sin
I love the way your tear apart the truth and love
I love the way you close my eyes and shut me up

I watched the light in your glorious eyes grow dark
I listened to the fading beats, of your dying heart
I pressed my lips to yours in a vain attempt to grant you life
I wept myself into a grave and now we’re side by side

Breathing life back into long dead thoughts
A thousand failures but you’ll get another shot
I watched your body as it disappeared to dust
I remember when your cold love sated my lust

OH GREAT MOTHER, beat me with your stick!
Ten thousand times a day I cry, for your loving whip!
Your song is heavy on my lips, always in my mind
And though your soul long has past, your body is still mine.

OH GREAT GOVERNMENT, crush me in your grip!
Bullets, bombs, and tyranny, please don’t let me slip!
Let’s play pretend as we once did, oh blessed parasite
You can shelter me from reality and the darkest night

I watched the light in your glorious eyes grow dark
I listened to the fading beats, of your dying heart
I pressed my lips to yours in a vain attempt to grant you life
I wept myself into a grave and now we’re side by side

Place your hands tight round my mind
Your fangs deep in my heart
Place your limits on my life
Keep me from the dark

I watched the color bleed from your vampirical flesh
I saw the world fall into the flames of chaos
I felt truth as it poisoned my soul
I collapsed as the reality of it all, took hold

OH GREAT ADVERTISEMENT, OH DYING PARASITE
HOW I MOURN FOR YOU, AND YOUR LOVELY LIES
OH GREAT CENSOR, CUTTING TRUTH FROM MY THIRD BLIND EYE
SPEAK TO ME FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE, AS YOU DIE!
