shoulder devil

by bly wallentine

shitty whiskey on a shitty killing spree double decker at the bottom of the sea i'm an angel in your pocket, buddy on the clock i'm terrified of fucking up burning everybody down isn't doing you any good and everything around me makes me believe you're burning everybody down you're not doing any good call it treason when i won't respond to shame lazy susan we can pass around the blame i am probably gonna die when i am thirty five i don't have any time to waste
flicker little firefly i'm invisible in light and destructive late at night fucker in a hologram i'm a wolf in women's clothes and i'm careful no one knows shoulder devil don't desert me let my wicked dealings hurt me shoulder angel don't protect me let my shitty deeds infect me
I only want what's fatal to me I wish you could see you're killing me baby perpetual indulgence fucks me to sleep light makes me weep I'm lucid maybe i am unfit to coexist with anyone alive I tell you I'll quit but I'm no quitter baby my self-destructive tendencies are vital to my well-being and i need a release there is a fissure inside my chest i always do what feels best but i can't get no peace
i am mistaken for a saint though i am full of dread and though i know i'm supposed to pray i masturbate three times a day instead i'm always shaken by the thought of passing prematurely the universe will wring my neck and all my friends will be a wreck/erect for a bit i cannot grapple with the realities of my compulsory existence i refuse to fuck with the realities of my compulsory existence
suck on the end of a bottle of piss i'm stuck in the glass caught up in the bliss tongue in the teeth of a negligent god we fuck and we cum and i hold to the rod the spirit tells me i'm a fucked up girl and I do my best to comply i'm a weekend lover in a holiday world and the spirit tells me to die so why do i deny the holy ghost nail in the cross of the son of man i'm thrilled by the blood as it runs down my hands devil in the dial of the clock in my brain enthralled by the shit as it speeds down the drain
