Boulevard of Lost HopeNothing in these pocketsBut a five dollar billFour dimesAnd a pint of whiskeyIn a crumpled upPaper sackWife beater onCarpenter style DickiesAnd a ball capTurned backSitting on a road side benchWatching cars on the fast trackDoing eighty fiveTo anywhereBut hereThe boulevard of lost hopePaved in broken glassAnd ill reputeI grew upNot far from hereI came to celebrate life changersAnd wake up callsSold my dreamsFor freedomNowEven in the worst of placesThe world seems brighterTo me
AcheA chink of gold held her tooth together. If she applied pressure she felt the sharp blades dig into her tender gums.

SenselessI've lost the power of speech,become the dumbest of beasts.I've been robbed of my senses,stripped of all my defences.Your exercise of bewitching touchleaves me incapable even of remembering my name.Your witchcraft has undone so much,still you refuse to shoulder the blame.There's so much for me to learn anew,can I hope to learn it all from you?
