She is a heavy blanket
It's the ultimate in cowardice
To crawl under and stay there
I've been her lover in that dark, dark lair

Embracing existence takes a brave, brave soul
Life gives you tough love, makes you be responsible
Despair says - put yourself inside me
There's so much comfort down there

Life is demanding of your bleeding heart
For hope and love you must believe
Despair asks nothing, you just lie back and grieve
Your struggle's over she will always be there

I don't want to be my mother crying, wetting the floor
Screaming how she can't take no more
But I don't want to have a trigger that flips the darkness on
Leaving me empty like a smoking gun

Sometimes my skin and my soul, they won't play
Then one harsh word from you, and she just drags me away, 'til you say
Heaven's sake brother don't you dwell in the place
Man, push her arms from 'round you, slap that bitch in the face
Heaven surrounds you, but you got to fight to be there

The devil is despair
