Torture me first before you let me go
Tell me what you think so that I know
And rush the water and rush the tide
And I give up trying to keep us alive
Because all of the efforts sought out in vain
Only ever did nothing but prolong the pain
Of an innocent surrender bound to last
I wish you weren’t part of my past
But ever present and ever true
Did I even talk to you?
Or was it a dream, all in my head
Wake up in the morning and you are dead
From the ravages of time and spirit
You brandish a sword but I do not fear it
Only surmise what I always knew
You do not mean what I meant to you
