6 (who?)
You're slick in my veins, and
Slick on my skin
And boy, you move so smooth
For a man made out of tin

The curving of your lips
When they travel down my spine
The warm acceptance of your arms
And how our fingers intertwine

Yes, you're so slick
And so eager to please
And I'm so young
And so easy to tease

It's not hard to make me shiver
Tracing my skin beneath your thumb
Your real art is wrecking me for others;
Their soft caresses leave me numb

Oh yes, my slick tin man,
You got me where it hurt
Make me wonder endlessly
While I'm lying in the dirt

Wonder what it is in you
That keeps you seeming sweet
Wonder how, if you're so heartless,
Your chest still has a beat

The gentle words I slipped into
Were lines from a mouth that plays
And the beat I once thought I heard
Was the trick of a body that preys

So, tell me, tin man
How it feels to take a heart
Hold it beating in your hand
Make it stop and help it start

Is it familiar to you yet,
What a pleasure heartbreak is?
Or is the only thing you remember
How to kill a girl with a kiss?

Oh, I love everything about this. The rhythm of it and the whole theme, great job. :+fav:
Thank you very much.
Wow. This is really deep, and I like how this is the way you depict man, whereas others might show mankind as wonderful, and as a whole.
