and i'll make one more wrong turn tonight

trap me in this bottle
drown me in burning alcohol
knock me out, strip me down
take me in then shut me out

throw me to new slick streets
let me wander in confusion
stumbling forward, falling down
feel the warmth of blood my own

tie me to bulls-eyed walls
shackle me, my hands and my feet
draw your arrow, release, let go
torture me, deflect your bow

tell me why I’m here
holding on to…. what?
let it scar me, my bones
at least I know why i’m alone.

this is weird.
