Treasure Island

Who do you love?


Who do you love?
I love the god fearing light
I love the god fearing night
He makes everything I fear right.

Who do you love?
Smash the mirror
This reflection isn't me.

Smash the mirror
This isn't right
I've got more fight.

This reflection
It's so shallow.

There isn't a single ripple
I'm not this still
I'm not this dead
I'm not this hurt
Hurt enough to hate.

Take my pulse
This isn't revulsion or fake
I'm just trying to be honest with you.
Who do you love?
Because I do I dearly do love you.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
