Part 2 of the "Drawing a House in Perspective" suite.


The bones are poking through his skin
As the door opens we step in
So much anger and gripe, easy does it
And down you go on the ground

Fourteen minutes past the big bad blow
With no one creeping outside the window
Safe for the moment
Safe for a time
Old buddy's sweating and bleeding with little to show

The blood is trailing to this house
When will they find us, they just might
I still worry if we're out of sight
Feeling guilty I tip toe
To where he lays by the window
I rid his blood by my hands
So he'll snap out of this trance

Old buddy shivers in the night
I get up and start a light
The warming fire renews us our bodies so
And by morning he is once again a selfish bore
Just like before the accident
Now we can see what's in store

On the table a box of might
In plain sight
I wonder what it's all about
The reason for the big bad fight
Limping through the kitchen door
Old buddy anxious to see the score
His mouth salivating
I've never seen him like this before

Money and a brand new life
Brought me here
Kept us together
And took all my fear
The box opened with my knife
We both see what can't be right
The pills so few between us
What now are we to do?
When is our freedom?

To quench his greed
His selfish reasons
To rid me of these endless days
In this hollow house
This prison
It's feeble
Undeniably evil
With only one way out

So the knife goes
One blow
Two blows
Then four
Ridding his blood by my hands
So he won't snap back from this trance

Snap back from this trance!

Up the staircase leaking blood
I push him into the icy tub
His blood is draining
He's complaining
The pain so infuriating
Get on up and get down, get down
To pack it all up
And escape alright
To get on up and right out of sight

In the silence the phone rings bright
A deafening roar and I'm nearly out the door
With box in hand
My heart skips twice
The sirens in the distance
Elevate my fright
As the man on the phone is asking
"Are you alright?"

A knock on the door does nothing for the score
The phone drops
He pays no mind
To the sound as he creeps behind
With vase in hand he begins to thrash

With one blow
Then four
And suddenly I am on the floor

My final vision
My life is one big indecision
The door swings open
Old buddy's down with me
And right on key
The world begins to fade
I hear no more sirens
And remember no more days
