Nooses (Texas in July)

This blister has made a permanent stay Upon the fingers plagued by a hand A hand that couldn't bare to raise up, be seen And speak like a man Bury me, let me lay I'll be right there when you look away Bury me, let me lay Remember me when I'm dead I'm dead Asphyxiating in water so cold Frigid straight to the marrow Pushed down, buried deep inside Where no light can shine through To live within weakened thoughts and brittle bones Bury me, let me lay I'll be right there when you look away Bury me, let me lay Remember me when I'm dead I'm dead You start to go under The waterline feels like a noose With every step the surface gets closer to your neck This sovereign baptism is the last thing you'll have the chance to disrespect Wicked tongues lick the silver spoon And the timid become the footpath While you turn away Bury me, let me lay I'll be right there when you look away Bury me, let me lay Punishment waits impatiently The blind follower requests a closing pardon. There are no ears to hear this false sermon. Your faulty judgment displayed so clouded Remember me when I'm dead I'm dead
