Perfect Fool

Liquid Violence

That which gives me strength
As the stream runs red
Pouring like liquid violence
From a cut in my head

I falter in thoughts and
There’s a knick in this knife
Look at that pretty mess

Ignore it as it falls away
Wrapped up in doubt

Maybe I could push the world around
Spin it on the tip of my finger
Get it moving again
At my pace
Let it beat in time with my heart

I think I need some strength
Just until I’m alive enough
To start living again
To start turning again
