Bitch in the uniforme
Like elegant little beady pearls en wrapping the spotless floor
Pure and untouched - singing hymns of paradise
Like milk from the heavens blanketing Divine dark chocolate
Like incredible daisies encompassing the forlorn tree
As he passes by the mountains and they awe in glee
He’s across the oceans, mountains and the seas
But his voice consumes my days and dreams
The sky glows with fields of light
As the brilliant sparks spread out and spell your name
I look up to the sky in all its might;
I’m left to marvel at the very sight.
A midst the lonely dark night, I sit;
Inhaling swelling bursts of your sweet scent.
So pious and Holy – was what I thought
Now the milk has turned rotten and sour,
The daisies died of shame, and the mountains crumble in disdain
Oceans and the seas spill over
as your deceptive voice destroys the oceans peace
The sky dims out, and lights fade out
And we see a cheating deceiving devil, dressed in white.
I lift my face up and look you in the eye
Not looking up to you, and it feels nothing magical I promise
I see the fire in your eyes
And its flame burns me down to my core
Theres a bitch in the uniform,
Behind the glowing white gown a bitch is all I see,
That bitch staring right back at me.
You see? The universe never conspired for us to be
It was all in your head, and my head – a false imagery
Of you, of us, and of your saintly angelic being
Mistook condescending for humble
Selfish for selfless
Vindictive for innocence at its best.
We need our angel in all his glory once more.
A one on one – with your greatest lies ever told.
You see? The universe,
It never conspired for us to be.
So hello little bitch, and goodbye bitch.
The bitch in the uniform is all I see.
