Enemy

Enemy

 

Here is my misery pouring right out of me,

bitter black coffee soiling my sheets.

I do it to myself,

I can’t stop.

 

Here is my misery buried inside of me,

little black sparrow eating up my heart.

I do it to myself;

I can’t stop.

 

While my enemy sings

While my enemy sings

 

You are my enemy,

opposite cell, you see,

negative alter me ...

I do it to myself;

I can’t stop.

 

You are my enemy,

I pay, you get it free.

You’re in the bar, you’re in the grand hotel.

I do it to myself;

I can’t stop.

 

While my enemy sings

While my enemy sings

 

I do it for my enemy

I do it for my enemy

I do it for my enemy

I do it for my enemy

I do it for my enemy

I do it for my enemy

I do it for my enemy

I do it for my enemy 

enemy

enemy
