The Leech

...and justice for both dishes
on this scale where were trying
to outweigh an obese leech
and the worlds advocate.

Im the millstone on your neck,
with my nails carved on your back,
burdening your mind
set on a comeback you planned
on sharing with me. Weve been
taking turns in getting fat,
climbing back to the bottom
as you slowly blur a past
behind a frosted glass.
And Im constantly there,
placing stalagmites on your path;
pulling you around as if youre elastic;
making you sweat to kill my stasis;
leaving through you as you live through me.

But Im the first to amputate your limbs if you run too ahead;
Im the first to make you unwillingly face what you dread;
Im the first to nail your head to hang the picture of my muse
and the first to blackmail you, in case you refuse.
But I keep spoiling you with honest sweetness
for a glimpse of your healing smile.

What if Im grateful,
still all my thoughts stream on a hateful echo through my mind?

All my uncertainties overflow
the platters of the leechs meal,
and you and me will keep carrying its sedan chair
you let go.

[ I think this is a bit scattered; but I'm sleepy and had some ideas, tell me if this needs anything. ]

People say I tan easily, but that's just my Bronze showing through.

Well, It's nice but I can't catch your mind in this text. What was the main purpose of writing this song text?

Thank you for your comments guys. This is actually a bit personal and hard to explain because it has so many ideas blended, but I may edit this post with a probably lengthy explanation.
