Wax Wolf You wanna kill him but he's kinda cute In his pajamas or in a suit He's got some jaws that talk some trash He's got some paws that move real fast When there is a wax wolf at your window Don't let him impress on you What he can do with that mouth If you want to keep your dress on You try to stab him with a knife Still finds a way to wreck your life You wanna shoot him with a loaded gun The times he'll die will be exactly none Give him some poison and you will see What Wolf Mommy fed her baby This zombie doggie you will find Gives new meaning to one-track mind If your wax wolf is a bit too sure That he is going to bang her You might just distract him if you Scare him with your doppelganger Richard decides she's had enough And Wax decides to call her bluff She points the gun right at his chest Blows a hole where his heart should rest He falls down and he starts to bleed Names all the angels that hew sees Richard cries "What have i done?" And Waxy laughs "Now that was fun!" If you think you're rid of him and Your life is safe to go back to There will be a fucked up-looking Snowman who will probably grab you When there is a wax wolf at your window Don't let him impress on you What he can do with that mouth If you want to keep your dress on

Cutting This is a very simple public service announcement for not spilling your blood but for keeping every precious ounce in.  I mean, you’re going to bleed anyway every month. You’re going to bleed anyway what's the rush. And you’re not alone You're not the only rockstar/witch. You’re not alone even though today it might feel like it. Speaking of it, Clara Bow, who grew up with no  money or parental guidance or anyone to show her a way out so she had to make her own escape, and she did into cinema which she helped to shape by becoming a movie star when she was just a teen defining fun and glamour for the whole of the roaring 20s. She had It but It was a lot of pressure for someone so young. So she turned to pills and coping mechanisms that included domestic violence. Prescription drugs and domestic violence Shock therapy and domestic violence. A lobotomy and domestic violence. Actually, that was Frances Farmer. Then Cleopatra, original rock star, she’d go far in a bed carried around by a dozen hot guys with arms that could do her bidding because a girl’s got get around, and some rockstar business is best conducted lying down. Anthony didn’t mind.  He was man enough to love her getting her way. Even when she ordered him to go battle but not to bathe. But she couldn’t wait until he returned so she delivered herself onto his ship secretly rolled up into a carpet. And mermaids she commanded into the nets of his men as a gift for their hard work on the decks. And when he died, she caught a snake and held it until it to her chest. Until it bit her that’s one way to deal with the pain I guess. It’s pretty hardcore but today there are other options… These days, witches have some other coping mechanisms. They can exercise to exorcise those inner demons. Learn to blind some rapists in a self defense class.   Think of all the security and power you will have. Or wield an instrument and let music be a vehicle for pain. It will travel far with so much fuel in the veins Everything is in your mind anyway. And you can change your mind into anything you want because you’re magic. Those people burned at the stake so you could be free. So go ahead and see what life is like for the living. Go ahead decide what life is like for the living. You’re not alone You're not the only rockstar/witch. You’re not alone even though today it might feel like it. You’re not alone
