Consequences

Welcome to my world :)
Although you cannot see
What I see, or feel what I feel,
I’d like to share with you a part of me.

I clutch my heart as I fall to the floor.
Irony is cruel, as the bastard calls my name,
That’s right, I can’t feel any more.
All I’ve been given is your sense of shame.

So I suffer the consequences of my actions,
Am I doomed to suffer, a victim of disdain?
Inflicted with anguish, guided by lust,
Is this to be my heart song’s refrain?

Perhaps I may bleed myself dry?
Find the purity of mutilated ecstasy,
Bleeding for you and being led
To a deep-seated torture and agony.

You are my love sickness;
I savour your foul taste like putrid wine.
My damaged nerve endings provide pain,
Like you’re a hard-wired knife in my spine.

I feel broken and bitter as I tear myself apart.
Your shape-shifting nature acts as a deception.
The blade serrates my exhausted flesh again,
As I find you shallow, without depth perception.

Where once I burned bright for you,
Now I’m frozen and frost bitten.
Is this my consequence for wanting you?
To remain the other woman and hidden?

I am tempted by emotions, yet you
Damage me and swallow my soul.
Despair feels like the truth of all life
And you are the master of it all.

Maybe self-destruction is the only way?
So when our false utopia has crumbled,
And poisonous parasites crawl under my skin,
My self delusion means I am utterly humbled.

Artist's Description


I love the Incubus song Consequence
Blink and you miss a beat
Keep one of your eyes open at all times.
Think that you’re on the brink?
The shit hasn’t even begun to hit the fan.
Consequence you’ll see will be stranger
Than a gang of drunken mimes.
Situation has a stink.
Better clear the air before your son becomes a man.
Blink.
Everything’s been augmented,
You’ve been left so far behind.
Think, for sure, next time you should
Wear a pair of eyes in the back of your head.
Consequence you’ve seen has been stranger than sci-fi of any kind.
Situation baffles me.
I guess it’s true you too are one of the walking dead.
You better think fast!
‘Cause you never know what’s coming around the bend.
You better not blink!
Don’t blink
For consequence is a bigger word than you think.
It’s bigger than you or me.

My other source of musical inspiration – perhaps more obvious?
Linkin Park Bleed it out
Yeah, here we go for the hundredth time
Hand grenade pins in every line
Throw ’em up and let something shine
Going out of my fucking mind

Filthy mouth, no excuse
Find a new place to hang this noose
String me up from atop these roofs
Knot it tight so I won’t get lose

Truth is you can stop and stare
Bled myself out and no one cares
Dug the trench out, lay down there
With a shovel up out of reach somewhere

Yeah, someone pour it in
Make it a dirt dance floor again
Say your prayers and stomp it out
When they bring that chorus in

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away

Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out

Go, stop the show
Choppy words and a sloppy flow
Shotgun, opera, lock and load
Cock it back and then watch it go

Mama help me I’ve been cursed
Death is rolling in every verse
Candy paint on his brand new hearse
Can’t contain him, I knows he works

Fuck, this hurts
But I won’t lie
Doesn’t matter how hard I try
Half the words don’t mean a thing
And I know that I won’t be satisfied

So why try ignoring him
Make it a dirt dance floor again
Say your prayers and stomp it out
When they bring that chorus in

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away

Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out

I’ve opened up these scars
I’ll make you face this
I pulled myself so far
I’ll make you, face, this, now!

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away

Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away

Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away

I bleed it out
I bleed it out
I bleed it out
