Wading through the sludge
Of your insanity
The heaviness and consequences
Of your obtuseness
Gravitation toward self-destruction
Grabbing hold to pull me down with you
In the twisted notion
And obsession
Of being my savior
So that ultimately
I have to release my hand
And allow you to fall
Into the jaws of the hungry shark
Whom you perceive
As the white knight
Who is eager to grab hold of you
In your rehabilitated form
And in the course of your mutual hysteria
Tear you to shreds
And eat you alive
