hungry

i have read your book of lies
testament of fear
swallowed every bitter bite
washed down with angel tears
she says: i am not a monster
i am barely formed
this is not how i was made
not how i was born

you can fill me
but i need something you can't give me
i am hungry
you can feed me
i need something you can't give me
i am hungry

i have died a thousand times
sacrificed and whored
i am only skin and bones
and i need more
she says: i am not a danger
why are you afraid?
i would love you anyway
could you do the same?

you can fill me
but i need something you can't give me
i am hungry
you can feed me
i need something you can't give me
i am hungry
