You keep me in your arm, in your vein.
I'm your blood now, numbing the pain.
I slick through you, coating your mind
A need forever, a lust to bind.

Your heart pumps me through you
My love courses into
your thoughts and prayers
your dreams and cares

Can you cry me out?
I hear you shout
Can you pry me loose
while i tighten your noose

Oh, you are so good to me
only now can you see
that you are for me and you are mine
until life runs out, and i can dine.
