Some religious symbolism I guess, I don’t know if that’ll offend people

Burn me in Gethsemane

A witch at the stake

Dying on the cross.

Please carry me home

My burdens and sacrifice

My skin

My bones

My ashes

My groans

Can you come and save me,

What say ye?

Can we please just be fairies

Faking like we’re scary,

We wear our pseudo-nightmares

To dream away the day.

But here we are skin walkers,

All just not-good talkers

Please keep from us the stalkers

Who lullaby the night.

Or burn me in Gethsemane,

Witch begging for her fairy wings,

Let me be the monster in the dark

Who scares off all the monsters not as large,

So I’ve nothing worse to fear

Because no fantasy I cling to dear

Will shield me half as well.

Go burn me in Gethsemane,

A skin without a puppet string

Silent in the crowded room, they scream.

I have demons worse to fear

Just rock away this night, I’m here

In desecrating flames.
