Nero's Rome

Nero’s Rome


My life died when my love lied
Like a snake in the grass
And just like a Garden of Eden
She ate the fruit forbidden


It chewed me to the core
It left me wanting more


Everything’s too bright in a shell without a light
Like a heart of one-way glass
I saw myself when seeing you
You saw me, but others too

I was a vampire before your mirror
Night came, I became white and disappeared

Everywhere I went was ground zero
In a town I used to love, now hate
My songs like bombs burn and break
Biting, screaming, scratching Nero
I will be the anti-hero
My fiddle and I fornicate
