Take It

Stick your hand in
Rip it out
Hold it out
A sacrifice
To the pouring rain
Hold it there
Let it shiver
Let the tears dilute the blood
Squeeze it hard
Till there’s no more life
Then pierce the flesh
With a pocket knife
Watch it ooze
And with the lava dripping from your hand
Draw a pattern in the sand
And when it’s flat
An empty cocoon
Let it fall
Let it float to the ground
Like a dead leaf in autumn
That’ll never be found
But don’t be fooled
I feel no pain
Take one last look
As you walk away
Life is but a role
I play the part
And will be much easier
Without my heart
