She's impossible to touch
She is the salamander queen
Her ink is all my innocence
Her body strong and lean
I've felt her pain and jagged fear
I've watched her vengeful eyes
Burn hypocrites and hollow ticks
Under grey and swirling skies

In the land of silence she is seen
a black and moving blur
she is nothing but a dragon's heart
where evil men do stir
Her actions have no consequence
to those under the law
But those above have no recourse
before the tightness in her jaw

Through wires, snow and hatred
she moves in utter peace
A girl one day and a man the next
in her bed they find release
But what of her, an empty shell
with hair as black as night,
who speaks just like a broken toy
and knows no wrong from right?

[Interlude]

Her soul is irrepairable
what's done is done and gone
No love for thee, oh dragon ink,
you black and brooding swan!
The rapist and the murderer
will know cruel demise
when the phoenix of her justice
places talons on its prize.

It's a beating and a bullet
for the psychopathic fraud
and in the fortress of her solitude
the demons do applaud.
There's a million little pieces
and she's picked up every one
just so she can fall apart again
in the clutches of the strong.

In nakedness is solace
she's a goddes of the flesh
but so damaged and so scarred
that she's a twisted broken mess
Her insanity is violent
spawning shades of the taboo
She's the girl who plays with fire
bearing pain without excuse.

[Interlude]

(x2)
Take it all
Just let her take it all
Just let the world go black
and let her take the fall
And when the crowd is thick,
she'll leave without a trace
and show up somewhere else
wearing a brand new face.

Lyrics and music by Mike Sytera. Inspired by The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
