Toxic Paradoxic Angel

The hotel room was filled with morning light

I never felt so down and so undressed

You said after that long and scary night:

“With you it’s much more fun to be depressed”

You saw in me the Mary Magdalene

And in the Magdalene you saw the Eve

And in the Eve you saw the sinner

But who I really am, you didn't see

I left you in your crazy carousel

Of exes, punishment and hell

The café, dans la rue, I see you now

Your drink, your pills, your cigarette, and how

you hold it, how you inhale, how your eyes

Look far away into the darker skies

You were my toxic paradoxic angel

Your mission was to break and to derange

Your poison was my elixir of change
