defiled lyrics – danielle dax

this personality is condemned
to an hermetically-sealed life,
in an alien landscape
where all roads lead to h*ll.
the possibilities stunted,
my comp*ss shuns magnetic north.
dragged screaming and kicking
through this cartography of fear.

defiled, defiled, defiled…

inertia
catatonia
your sacrifice.

all my maps are chemical
sign-posts bourbon-laced.
i seek the sweet oblivion
of the powder and the pill.
comatose-non-reaction
an unwilling accomplice in
fate’s hidden agenda –
this cartography of fear.

defiled, defiled, defiled…

pig skewered on a wooden spike
trussed-up all glazed and spitting.
dried blood obscures the floor,
my head is pulverised and splitting.
my limbs are foreign useless things
swooping in on spidery wings.
legs jigging stupidly
as groans spin down from another planet.

defiled, defiled, defiled…
