“Your loneliness, at a distance… Out of reach
Comes at me, whistling and asking, It rocks me out of my speech
Never does it look away, detach or leave
All it wants is my insatiable hunger to achieve
Are you ready? Are you sure?
A pawn you will be, a piece to allure
Crying, screaming, laughing… That’s what’s in store
Trapped at a whim, enchanted to your very core
You can’t run nor can you even try
Because all what’s will be, is me, in your mind
What will be, not a fantasy or an illusion
I’m as real as it gets, only that, I’m confusion
An advanced sorry, given to you right now
I can’t control me, my nature is chained anyhow
Your eyes and your lips, I have them on lock
I hope you’re not sensitive, I may give you a shock
Don’t look back, no one’s there to help you
Yours alone will be this experience be, Only you I will allow to fall through
Let’s be on our way, you’ve been such a good time
Hold my hand, Don’t think. It’s not a crime
I don’t promise much. Anyway, I just do
Like an impulsive beast. This is long away from adieu
Cruel you think am I? For being this way?
I can fulfill you, my darling, like a spiritual bouquet
I’m a mysterious gentleman yet an undiscovered fiend
I wasn’t born this way, like all things, I am machined
But think about it for a sec, it’s your turn to play me now
You have to change this lion into an owl, somehow
You say it’s an impossible task? For little ole’ you?
Others have tried, be different, what say you?
You think I don’t yearn to be different, to be better?
My dear if you change me, I’ll write you a love letter
If I am a vessel of courage, callousness and mistakes
Be my hope and compassion, rid me of these snakes
So before I come to you, before you are trapped
Don’t radiate to me your desires then ask why you were kidnapped
I’ll be here my love, waiting for whoever you are,
Counting looks and smiles, sitting, healing a scar
Are you looking? or is destiny your salvation?
Time runs out, but does it have an expiration?”
