War of the roses

So how do we do this
break up or make up
I cowered for days
hours and hours
you couldn't be bothered
as we run in place
shame is the name of the game
as you draw your sword
a strike and a deathly blow
still I take the blame
the simplest of routes to take
is the harshest of truths to face
do we hate to be loved
do we love to feel burned
this isn't a test
it's a battle for blood

the cavalry comes right around the bend
there will be others who'll take your place
this isn't a war, there will be no roses
spread on your bed, blood and tears instead

left to pick up the pieces
while you roll the dice
shrill voices, they beckon
I close my eyes

A collision of sounds. A thoughtful and whimsical blend of man versus machine.
