Brown sugar coat skin,
african girl, stick thin.

Eyes of moonless nights,
Sighs, sweet velvet sighs.
Shades of sin.

Burst of laughter
Surge of energy
"All I need is love,
Someone to treasure me"

Look into her soul,
Find the hidden.
Truths of life.
Truths of sin.
Truths many, buried deep within.

Brown sugar coat skin.
Sweet as the bearer.

Angel of sin,
Heavenly disaster
So pure, yet so broken.

Violent screams
Razor to skin
"Flow blood, drip down
out through my skin, let sadness in"

Look past the smiles,
Find saltlake tears.
Stream down at night.
She's alone,
She's alone.
