Witness

Thought I had a witness
To this crime
Thought I had a witness
Thought we were on the same side
of Becoming
Then the judges
called in a witness
C’mon

So then when
Did you then
Begin your
Craving for
White powder
Exotic
Matter that
Cells divide
Arresting time

So in your
Furnace then
You drank my
Tenderness
Feldspar and
Mica then
You thought that
You would own
My temple
of gold

Gotta rise
In the night
Pick myself off the floor
I know now
That it’s over
Had a life
Before
You left me burnin’ in
Your petrol emotion
Your petrol emotion
Wanting more

Thought I had a witness
C’mon
Thought we had a friendship
C’mon
Thought I heard you
Whispering murder
Thought this witches
Brew was more than
Bullet-proof
But words are like guns
When you shoot the moon
‘Cause everybody whispers
C’mon

Is there anyone?
Is it any wonder
I’m out the door

Is there any way?
Is there any way forward?
Thought I had a witness
Thought you were you
Thought I was a witness
You could turn to
Not in

Thought I had a witness
To this crime
Thought I had a witness
C’mon
