Pretty Little Dead Thing

That saying,

If you love someone, then you should set them free

Well, you really don't seem to get it

I suspect you're not even listening to me

Pretty little dead thing
Don't come around here no more
Let the past be as it was
I've already asked you this nicely before

Pretty little dead thing
Why can't you just rest in peace?
And let me move onward with my life
I'm begging
Won't you, please?
Cease with this madness

I have to confess

Times have changed
And so have I since that dreadful day
You were taken from me

I asked myself, Why?
So many goddam times
That the question no longer begged of necessity

And now since you've appeared on my front porch
Six nights ago during this sweltering June
I've taken to locking the windows, bolting the doors
You just stand there naked under the moon

Pretty little dead thing
Your cold lips don't utter a single word
I sense you want me to take you back
Those empty eyes say what doesn't need to be heard

Pretty little dead thing
It will never be the same as it was before
Though beautiful still despite the scars
I can't just bring myself to open the front door


Times have changed
You're no longer the one
Who once occupied my heart of hearts

For she was buried in the ground
And remains six feet under
While your just stitched together body parts

I'm trying not to be rude, but you have to admit
We're no longer a match, hardly compatible
And the next girl I ask to be my fiancee
Will in the very least have somewhat of a soul

Pretty little dead thing
I don't mean to cause you any more pain
If you had any feelings, that is
Any neural sensations registering in your brain

Pretty little dead thing
Can't you see that this wasn't meant to be?
I don't know if I can explain it any better
You're no longer that special someone for me

Pretty little dead thing
Such a lively little dead thing
Life can be a deadly thing
For a pretty little girl like you
