All Around Is Quiet

lyrics

The rain beats on the windshield.
The radio is on,
The symphony fills up the field
Driving to downtown.
Moving into traffic,
I'm not even sick.
I still have blood on my nails,
Same color as her lipstick.
The rain beats on the windshield
Recall the room beyond the hall
Where her blood gushed on the wall,
A thousand roses in the field.

I didn't want to kill her.
I realize I just did.
She laughed when I begged her
I did it, easy on the beat.
I broke a glass of dirty gin
Shattered her soft skin.
Bottleneck slid on vocal strings.
She screams as she seems to sing
Her eyes begged me like I did.
She crawls to reach the door
She's now dead on the floor
She laughs the throat wide open.

The rain beats on the windshield.
The radio is on,
The symphony fills up the field.
All around is quiet.
