birthstones in the garden

serene turns to bloody
lullaby whipped to scream
if you've ever watched 
your mother die
you'll know what i mean

goodtimes are soon forgotten
friends just drift away
death roosts in the brain forever
i guess we're born that way

who is this diadem 
that gives then steals away
puts birthstones in our garden
then swiftly cuts it all away

but its not for me to ask?
