Words and Blood

I have tied knots in my tongue
To keep it from slipping from my mouth
Words betraying me as my heart bleeds out

It could not be easier than i have made it
To slit the throat of my confidence
So my breath stops short of my mouth

Now their are no words to betray me
And I have bled out
So my breath stops short of my mouth

I have tied knots in our love
To keep it from running through my hands
Love is slippery when wet with blood

With the blood on the outside
My heart is free from burden
And my mind is free from doubt

I have tied knots in my tongue
To keep it from slipping from my mouth
