Noble Intentions

She gives me everything,
Everything I need.
She’s a life-ring tossed
into my stormy seas.

She’s a carnival
on the edge of town.
She erects a home
for all the lions and clowns,
who take me over.

My flashpoint of desire,
My unforgettable fire.
She flouts all conventions
For noble intentions.

She’s taken everything,
every piece of me.
She’s a shooting star
in her own galaxy.

What are you waiting for?
Go on and waste my life.
You ate the best of me, baby.
Devour all that’s left.
Get the feasting over.

My flashpoint of desire,
My unforgettable fire.
She flouts all conventions
For noble intentions.

I see them burning,
like a funeral pyre.
The flames are all consuming.
Burn them out,
these noble intentions.

My flashpoint of desire,
My unforgettable fire.
She flouts all conventions
For noble intentions.

I see them burning,
like a funeral pyre.
The flames are all consuming.
Burn them out,
these noble intentions.

I see them turning,
like a perfect lie.
The pain is all consuming,
working out
her noble intentions.
