Run over by one-way traffic in a
Travesty of love and want
Where want from you and love from me
Meet and collide on a one way street.
Hammered by desire, yours not mine
The desire to be desired, to be possessed
Outweighs the simple desire to possess
I am yours but you want only what is mine.
Smashed by lust, greedy love expressed
In the currency of coin not flesh or soul
And so I surrender to reality and pay the price
To keep you I offer myself but you hand me back with change.
