lyrics

You were hanged to dry,
to tap all the blood from you
and drown you in black bile
since melancholy so becomes you

O that you somehow could have been saved,
my deity of pity
Your isolation, now your oubliette walled with regret –

Follow your sharpened knives to the grave,
they’ll set your neck free
from the noose that kept you here,
restraining thee from felicity

Your plight rings true within me:
an endless yearning for misery –
do we hang from the same tree?

We construct an echo chamber of sympathy,
lovingly tightening each other’s dismal noose –
hanged to dry!

How foolish to think yourself the cure;
such a fragile being, still yourself impure

We were hanged to dry,
a desiccated pair in decay
Less than the sum of our parts
in that crippling melancholy array
