Use.

Use useless using user,

Used by your abuser,

Uses only to be used,

The kind of clarity that leaves you confused.

Tattoos made with stick and poke,

But there’s no ink in needles filled with dope.

Pin head pupils and glossy eyes

The result of sour lies.

Your body lies there on the floor,

But it isn’t you anymore.

Oh, Breathing carcass, what are you?

Who am I speaking to?

Those are my lovers eyes you’re looking through,

But he sees differently than you do.

That heart that you feel beating,

It’s my lovers heart you’re stealing.

Tell me, is he in there living?

Tell me, is he in there dying?

Can he see me out here breaking?

Can he see me out here crying?

That is my lovers mind; the one you are brain washing.

Please, do take your time, that is my favorite part you’re taking.

Your voice nearly fools me, it sounds so familiar…

But to fall for you is an affair with my lovers abuser.

Use useless using user,

Used by your abuser,

Uses only to be used,

The kind of clarity that leaves you confused.

Tattoos made with stick and poke,

But there’s no ink in needles filled with dope.

Pin head pupils and glossy eyes,

The result of sour lies.

That’s my lovers body you’re destroying.

Permeating through his veins, I bet your are enjoying

Poisoning his heart and head

Until the truth is dead…

Tell me, when are you done

Playing with his mothers son?

Tell me, when will you leave,

Anymore tricks up your sleeve?

That is my lover’s father…

You’re filling his heart with anger.

This is my lover’s family…

His brothers, they miss him dearly.

Give him back to us before he has no more room to fall…

For you are the monster in him bringing out the monster in us all.

Use useless using user,

Used by your abuser,

Uses only to be used,

The kind of clarity that leaves you confused.

Tattoos made with stick and poke,

But there’s no ink in needles filled with dope.

Pin head pupils and glossy eyes

Tell me no more sour lies.
