I can see black roses in pill form
Through infrared scanning
Inside the sanctum of two lovers,
The heart you hold is the one you break
The shaded hours where the minutes are dated
Years stripped, bare bones to be cremated
Drown in VHS tapes then hit tracking and rewind
Fissure filled comatose nectar seeps through the mind
Flicker in and out in the wrong crowd, not your kind
You were down with Jonestown
Sugary sweet Kool-Aid permanent showdown
A village of smiles coerced into a frown
