To The Lions Be Thrown

Sweet deception
Loss of perception
Unable to grasp
These emotions fallen into my lap

Tie this noose around my neck
And expect me to jump
Stumble upon this glorious wreck
And expect me to clean it up

(Chorus)
As crystal clear as the tears themselves
I see you placing me, as another doll on the shelves
Another back in which to thrust your needles
Supervising all, devolving to fetal

The invisible nemesis of yesterday
That torments my tomorrow
The bane that haunts my veins and clouds them gray
As I am the hopeless romantic that weeps in sorrow

(Chorus)
As crystal clear as the tears themselves
I see you placing me, as another doll on the shelves
Another back in which to thrust your needles
Supervising all, devolving to fetal

Waging war with myself
Knowing not what to do?

Determined to find the balance
To make one of two?

Will to slay the latter
To serve the lesser on a platter

Split these sides
Don?t deny
That you can see what?s inside

Stand me at attention
Tell me at ease
Place this pretension
And make me uneasy

(Chorus)
As crystal clear as the tears themselves
I see you placing me, as another doll on the shelves
Another back in which to thrust your needles
Supervising all, devolving to fetal

Delusive compulsion
Mass distortion
I wish to be my own
Not a product of two tone

Moral decay
In the winds of change I sway
I wish for you to be gone, of that I am sure
In still life I still await your departure

Rename me for my own [x5]

Or to the lions be thrown
