What happened to the Eve I once knew?
Genuinely sweet as if the word “evil” has not merit here
But the knife would like to interject
From my back where it met its new home
(In skin and bone)

The knife tells me that there has been quite the talk
Back there and none of it has been anywhere near fair
A bullet to the head would have finished the job
But you just broke my legs and watched
As if both proud and unaware
Of the mutiny you just committed here
In the bowels of this ship

Murder, murder. You wrote the book on it

(Please no more)
(What happened to the Eve I once knew)
Then a cool breeze snaps me back to reality in time to see
Her black silhouette posed in the doorway
With no mess
(With no mess)
No mess on
That dress she’d never wear for me
Were you saving it for something better?
Is this that “something better”?!
(I still don’t know what upset her)

Tell me just what went threw your head
Was it something one of us lower people said?
(A new tune decided to chime)
(Or was it there the whole time?)
An old bloody handprint on the wall
Too small to be mine
(Too small to be mine means…)
I’m not the first one…

You shot my ship down
(You wrote the book on it)
As if to say

I want you, I want you, I want you
To stay at sea forever!

You want the world!
You want the world
But you can’t have mine.

You shot my ship down
(You wrote the book on it)
As if to say
