Reductio Ad Absurdum

God save the bitter sweet you always taste
When you love her, you fear the poetry on your face
Crave a clean slate, but you’re always dirtying up the glass
‘Cause it hurts bad to have no hand in what will pass

You wept with devils who beheld your hand as you beheld the dawn
And you saw her teeth in the aftermath of some brutal chance
And in your heart you traded every love you ever had
For some ruined land that laughs at the labor of your hands

God damn the sweet romance of an empty heart
‘Cause you held it dear when she closed her eyes and disappeared
And you love yourself only when you hate everything you were
And it hurts bad to have no hand in what will last
